Sunday’s weather forecast called for lots of rain, so my hiking companion bailed.
Well, Anza weather is hard to predict. It turned out to be foggy/drizzly in the morning, then clearing in the afternoon. — Perfect weather for hiking. So, I did the planned hike any. (This was a recon hike for a possible public event sponsored by the ABF.) I opted to do PCT north to “Anza’s Grand Canyon,” then back with a couple side hikes down Alkali Wash and up to the summit (such as it is) of Table Mountain. Got some nice photos for a booklet I’m working on about the flora in the Table Mountain area of Eastern Anza. Also took a few other photos showing the variety of interpretative subjects on this hike.
First, here’s the route:

And here’s some cool pictures:
