The folly of building roads in a canyon carved by running water is apparent in Box Canyon, Indio/Mecca, CA. A scenic drive then becomes an offroad adventure. The road was washed out on 10/13/2018, and the canyon incised a little deeper. . #california #canyon #boxcanyon #boxcanyonroad #geology #geologist #erosion #roadsidegeology #rocks #sedimentary #sand #offroading #desert #meccahills #indio #socal #southwest #gooutside #rocks #rocksrock
This is an awesome slot canyon in California. Parts of the trail have ladders or ropes that you can climb up or down. #paintedcanyon #laddercanyon #meccahills #california #cali #nature #travel #hiking #adventure #explore
There’s a whole world out there waiting to be explored and I plan on seeing as much of it as I can. 🌍✨ #jackchi #dogsofig #dogslife #olddog #meccahills #jackahuahuasofinstagram #jackahuahua

When you are this old you need plenty of rest! My back legs get super tired when I push myself to keep up w the young pups. Self care is important! 🐾 #jackchi #dogsofig #dogslife #olddog #jackahuahuasofinstagram #jackahuahua #meccahills

Hiked and scrambled through Ladder Canyon. Then ended the day with some much needed R&R - went to bed at 7PM! #meccahills #laddercanyon #paintedcanyon #blmland #camping #theahnclan
A little Time-Laps of the Painted Hills and Ladder Hikes... #meccahills #palmsprings #california #desert #hikes #paintedhills #ladderhike #timelapse
Mecca Hills, Painted Hills and Ladder Hike... eventful journey to these hikes... passed some vehicles on the dirt road on the way... turns out you get a little stuck in the sand as you are driving up... worth it in the end... #meccahills #palmsprings #california #sand #desert #stuck #needapush #ladderhike #paintedhills

Can you guess where I'm headed this weekend? Never mind that it's in my bio. πŸ‘‹πŸ» … It's hard for me to concentrate on my trip knowing how much my beautiful home state of California is going through right now. This morning my car was coated in ash, the skies were hazy, and the air was saturated with the smell of smoke. I'm 200 miles from the Camp Fire, which broke out yesterday and has already destroyed thousands of structures, taking lives along with it. I can not fathom how those who have had their homes, their loved ones, their town taken from them feel. I feel so gutted and helpless as the state I call home is being ravaged by fires, each one seemingly worse than the one before. I'm keeping all those impacted in my thoughts, have already donated, and shared ways you can help in my stories. 🀞🏻 … πŸ“· by @littlehiccups with my Canon 5DMKIII and 35mm f/1.4L lens.

In my purely hobbyist venture to catalog the accessible and visible morphology, structure, limited petrology, and human interaction of the San Andreas Fault and vicinity, I stopped at Mecca Hills. Through incision by storm run-off gullies, two or three separate units of fault gouge can be seen actively commingling; The "red clay gouge" (remnant of mudstone beds) on the right, and the "Palm springs" formation (arkose & conglomerate) on the left, and perhaps the gneissic basement rocks that underlie the region. Emphasis here is on the color change, which is evidence of holocene shear/fault slip, and inline with the greater shear trend. Location is just 360 yards off Box Canyon Road. Now that I can do slightly better than subsisting on ramen noodles, I intend to revisit this place with better camera gear. ----- Disclaimer: I am a geologist but work in an unrelated field; thus, correction and discussion is welcome and encouraged.

Searching for the #SanAndreasFault in #MeccaHills . This is the entrance to #PaintedCanyon and #LadderCanyons which were created by the fault line. What are the chances the #BigOne would happen during our visit? #earthquakecountry #dangerwillrobinson #destinations #desertliving #wanderlust #meditation #spiritualspaces #newadventures #hiking #pathnottaken

I found myself in a maze this morning which seemed to extend a mile in every direction. There were so many pathways, made by rainwater, through the mostly sandstone and dried mud hills. I spotted this little formation, which I have more photos of, and climbed up 10 or 15 feet to snap some shots up close. It wasn't the most comfortable place to be though. It served as my reward for shimmying through narrow slot canyons and exploring all of the dry waterfalls this morning. . #desertmountains_meccahills . . . #take_magazine #imaginarymagnitude #oksfieldmag #gominimalmag #stademagazine #lightzine #solarcollective #oftheafternoon #ifyouleave #somewheremagazine #broadmag #onbooooooom #rentalmag #ourmomentum #ourmag #lekkerzine #weltraumzine #midnightsafari #dreamermagazine #indiependentmag #hippomag #taintedmag #photozine #phroommagazine #paperjournalmag #meccahills #westbysouthwest #desertart #weltraumzine

Beautiful hike with amazing views. Mecca Hill. #meccahills #paintedcanyon #hiking #rockclimbing #california
I have not been camping in a long time. I have acquired everything needed pretty much to "bikepack" and carry the equipment on my mountain bike. Super light tent, sleeping bag and pad, a lot of bags to strap on the bike and the ability to carry plenty of water. Hopefully I will have time soon to take a little ride from my front door to a rugged dirt canyon road and ascend into Joshua Tree NP. It would be a great one night trip, around 60 miles or 96 km. This was taken in the Mecca Hills, a vast expanse of dried mud hills that sit in between Joshua Tree and the Salton Sea. Before the bats came out.
