The drive through Split Mountain wash would have been excursion enough. The sandy wash was fairly wide, sometimes smooth, sometimes rocky and rough. The walls on either side seemed to be different at every turn.
|Pam's book tells us that his formation is an anticline|
We came to the end, parked, and followed a rocky trail up the mountain to our destination, the wind caves.

We climbed up over, down under and all around the caves. I half expected to walk in on Fred and Wilma putting little Pebbles to bed or meeting Barney on his way home from the Slate Rock and Gravel Company quarry.

The wind came up and it started to get quite chilly up at the top so we headed back to the jeep and home.

There was no rain in the forecast, but the sky was very dark as we drove out of the canyon and back to our campground.
The setting sun and the forming clouds gave us a beautiful sunset to end another fun day.
