I have been wanting to go hiking back in Cougar canyon and one other (I thinks its called "The Maze")in A-B Desert for a while. The first I heard about Cougar canyon was from a SAR (search and rescue) orgainization. From what I have been told the area around that canyon has killed many people, mostly from getting injured then running out of H2O, a few from falling off cliffs and a rare few from floods. Is this true? One of these days (propbably after I start driving)(hey it could be my first solo road trip) I will finnaly get to go there. I just missed being able to go to an Orienteering Meet near "the Maze" a month ago.

I don't know if this is true, but there certainly a lot of opportunities to fall from a cliff while hiking on the west wall of the canyon. Fortunately we all made it in good shape.

Went up to Burrow Schmidt's tunnel on Sunday. For those that don't know, he was a miner who was looking for a way to get his ore from his claim site to the road that goes to L.A. He decided to dig a tunnel through a solid granite mountain. It took him 38 years to dig the tunnel and before he finished it, a road had been built which negated the need for it. He completed his tunnel anyway. :)

 

Too many pics to post here, so I'll link to them instead.

Shades State Park, in west central Indiana. Hope the pic link works.

Can anyone tell me why my pics always come out so small on these forums? They are much bigger than that!

Looks like you are copying and pasting the url for the thumbnail of your pic from your gallery. If you want to copy and paste, open up the pic and click on it to view it full size, then copy and paste the url.

which results in:
