Ah- yes.
The track is faint near the first Y. Keep right and pick up the trail again. The goal is to take the way closest to the hills on the Matomi side.

Of course the use of a GPS solves these kind of issues

Not a Relive person I do not know it they have a downloadable track.
My track I posted is accurate for the arroyos and the way to the arch.

May 7, 2021: Exploring


Here is Wornout's notice:
Friday we will meet at the tires, at 9:00 am and head west to the highlands. From there we will head to the chalk quarry and then drop into the arroyo that will take us to the dry falls. From there back out to the highlands highway and head to the powerline. Next head north and explore the arroyos that run west from the powerline.

While trying to find my way to the arch, I ran into some hail -- eventually the ground was mostly white.

Your file would have been handy. I had the location of the arch marked on my GPS, but did not have a route. At the Y where you head right/south -- I went that way shortly, but backtracked for something headed more west, closer to the mountains.

Oh well, next time. Thanks for the track!

Oct. 14, 2021 West Valley Canyons


I may have missed a couple of Wornout's trips... but let's get back to enjoying his movie-map runs!

Last week, his posse of buggies and 4x4s took roads to the entrances of several canyons facing Valle Chico (Sierra San Pedro Mártir, eastside).

The Moving Map and photos:
https://www.relive.cc/view/vmqXXmQY2oq

The Relive Map doesn't give the canyon names, so I asked Warnout...

The first in and out was what we call 'Ball Park'
Second was Tulare
Third was Toledo
Fourth was Medio (we skipped the next one, NMedio (New Medio))
Fifth was Oso

We skipped Cajon cuz that is a run we go directly to since the water is usually pretty close.

That should do it.


His canyon map is attached...

Rams Head


There is more
Started out poorly when in the heavy dust someone in the line of 19 rigs missed the turn and led the followers beyond the turn.
Did not get to Wow as you see we stopped to fix a tie rod on a VW buggy.
Then when did not get past the north end of OPR when another buggy died with transmission failure (Can am). Took that buggy home on a strap.
Here is the inReach image.

WOW


Many years ago locals exploring with using a 4 wheel ATV for the search to locate a crossover to connect the two branches of Chanate. Back then the ATVs could drive thru the canyon and meet up between the two branches of Chanate at the east end. Then the floods came and made the passage too hard to pass. That place where a big drop off appeared is called Wow. It is now used for a lunch stop place. The recent drive proved to be an easy drive and the big boulders that once slowed us down are buried in the sand. We get there by way of Rams canyon mostly to minimize driving east up Chanate which is race used and a hard drive with deep sand.

Wow is the place with a big drop off. Recently some high lifted Jeeps have found a way around that drop off.

As you can see the two drainages are separate but really close to each other at the western head waters.

I drove my capable Jeep from where the two drainages came together heading NW and came to another obstacle that was to steep and since I was solo driving I declined to try the climb. Now we are waiting to try it again because that steep place will change.

By the way at the east end of the two drainages is a huge Cardon forest that is interesting to investigate.
