|Just getting started into Soledad Canyon|
We didn't run into anybody until we were headed back on the final leg of the Bar Canyon Loop. The people we encountered were all in a good mood; who can blame them being out on such a beautiful morning in our section of the northern Chihuahuan Desert?

|This and the next 6: same Phainopepla (Phainopepla nitens)|
|Rainbow Hedgehog Cactus|
|Sotols and The Chimney|
|Carried away with cairn making|
|Looking back down canyon|
|The way forward|
|Sotols all over the place|
|Another Rainbow Hedgehog|
|The trail ahead|
|Sun through juniper|
|Formations near the trailhead|
Beautiful photos of the Pahinopepla. All of the photos captured a gorgeous winter morning in the desert.
