While home in the high desert we made a trip out to Fossil Falls. This is a unique geological feature in the Coso Range where volcanic activity and glacial water created a landscape of volcanic rocks, cliffs, and ravines hundreds of years ago. When we were younger our youth group used to rapel off the edges.
It was a cold day, and there was a strong wind. We bundled up as best we could, and hiked around for a bit. Several of us scaled down to the ravine floor, and then back out again. (It may be the desert, but don’t let that fool you. Those rocks were cold on bare hands!) We ended our trip with a picnic, and then headed home to thaw out. My brother’s talented girlfriend Julia took most of the photos. Check out her website here.
