Our last stop on our desert trip was K's Rock. It's such an idyllic campsite - isolated, beautiful, and peaceful. We camp almost in the shadow of the towering reddish rock structure. When we arrived, I could see the half moon rising over the rock.
Shyla and I did one together. It's a huge climb up more than 2000' to a lookout that never ceases to astound me. It's a popular route but we managed to get up early and do the whole thing without seeing another person! So, we had the summit, with the views, all to ourselves.
I love seeing the distant snowy mountains behind the intricate red rock desert floor that sat thousands of feet below us.
After our big climb and enjoying the lookout point, we headed back down to camp for an afternoon of lazing around. Everywhere I looked as we rode, I saw amazing sights, like this red rock cliff weathered by eons of wind.
Mary said in a comment, I am a "desert rat"! I love the desert, and I always yearn to go back after a trip ends. I keep visualizing K's Rock in my mind's eye and looking forward to being there again.
I hope it won't be too long until we laze around in that campsite again!
