I did see plenty of rabbits and birds; the most comical sighting of the latter involved the Cactus Wrens pictured below. One spent much time eating seeds from spent Soaptree Yucca pods; I think I saw him spit out as many seeds as he ate.
There were no hikers where I was in the outback, but I did encounter two people just heading out as I headed in on the final leg of my morning trek.
