[You can zoom in on any image by hovering mouse over it and selecting from menu on right.]
The La Sal Mtns in background - a common sight today.
In the course of our adventure, we'll descend Lomatium Cyn, then connect with Krill Cyn.
You need a separate permit to enter the Fiery Furnace area, as there are no trails and one must be careful to avoid the cryptobiotic soil.
Lots of rock scrambling - both up and down.
