Went up the canyon west of Moan. Came down it in a different path a while back. Hike ended up about 12 miles when done. Found some boot prints coming down.. perhaps one of the hikers here?
Going up.
Rocks at the top
Before I dropped down into the Canyon, I poked around in some of the shallow valleys on the western slope of Moan and found some well-defined roasting pits. Once on top some potter frags here and there.
A really nice day out in the mid 70's. Lunch at the Bedrock cafe..

East or west of the tracks? A wild area for sure. I don't recognize anything. Nice photos as unusual.

When you pull out of the canyon there's a drop of about 200-300ft back to the service trail. You end up in the area where the service road drops back down to the R&R tracks near the trestle. Heres a shot looking back towards moan. Moan here is northeast. There's was some other interesting areas to explore on another hike. Desert temps up to 90 for a while.

Daren and I were out there 1/6-7/18 ( http://www.anzaborrego.net/anzaborrego/Forum/topic1355-carrizo-gorge-east-side.aspx ) so we could have left some of the prints you saw. Like that area. Thanks for posting. Tom

Boot tracks were oriented north down the canyon. Opposite direction I was heading. Probably yours.
