Start of Great Wall loop trip... 20150422_7416

The Great Wall loop hike started here, at the Courthouse Wash turn-out on the main park road. The Great Wall is out of view to the right. After exploring the top of The Great Wall I hiked westward and made an easy scrambling descent into Courthouse Wash, which I followed back to the park road.

A year earlier I explored the approah route on an overcast day. Some approach photos are mixed in with the sunny shots.

Soon after leaving the car I walked up this wash---it led to the scrambling route. Recent rain had left tree debris here and there and sculpted the sand. My footprints were the only ones in the wash that afternoon.

A year later I reached the rocks atop the ridge at center.
