A most pleasant day

Today we hiked Sounds of Silence again.  So much to see!  New flowers are blooming, bringing a new color cast to the desert.  Want to know why it is called Sound of Silence?  Once you get around some of the rocks there is no sound except local animals.  In fact, the silence is so great that it has been measured: at less then a quiet sound room for music recording!  Some pictures:

The path through the red wash, uphill to the plateau

A splash of white, in the middle of the desert

Coming down from the plateau requires walking down slick rock, OK when it is dry but really slick if wet...

Somewhere in there is the "path" we took back down. A good test of nerves, and hiking shoe traction. Slick rock photo taken at the top
