Did an overniter out to A-B. Camped near a spring hoping to photograph some wildlife.

Did a little hike near box canyon.

Interesting geology and plenty of blooming ocotillo, barrel cactus and dudleya.

^^^ That all-seeing eye and the dudleyas are great.

The ocotillos were blanketing that whole Mason Valley beautifully, just below Box Canyon. But the blooms farther south were nearly gone. I got up a couple of mornings to watch the sunrise, and at 5AM Sunday I happened to catch the planetary alignment with my phone. L to R, Jupiter, Venus, Mars & Saturn. I think several days earlier one could have seen the moon lined up with them too.

This may have been one of the last weekends to hit the desert before its oppressively hot, maybe another week or so.
