Mad Diaries of the Southern Tour
By Scott Endorf - (contact)

Van Horn to 15 miles outside of Kent - 71 miles

Friday June 9, 2006

The ride up the mountain toward the observatory was scenic but remote. Finding a place to camp was a challenge, as there was only a small section of space off the road before a barbed wire fence that separated the grazing land. I really didn't want to camp with the cattle so we finally found an area we cleared of small cacti to pitch by the side of the road. It was a beautiful night but we monitored a storm coming which fortunately never found us. The coyotes were howling all night. Simply beautiful.

Approaching the Davis Mountains toward the McDonald Observatory. The terrain and the fence line made for a challenge to find a place to camp.

Look Mike! A tree! A tree!

Despite the storm potential, this was a beautiful place to camp. The coyotes were eerie.
