We saw, and greeted, several other hikers and a mountain biker during our trek, but it was by no means crowded west of the mountain. And when we got back to the Sunset Area there were only a few vehicles in the parking lot.

That first photo--West of Tortugas--shows that the desert floor is starting to green out because of the recent rain and the change of seasons. I'm glad you were able to get a hike in before having to do your dreaded weekly shopping expedition.
