More Pics Near Peak 6460

Here are a few photos I took last year on my hike to the broad sandstone area northeast of peak 6460. Here's a google map centered on the area. This shot looks south into the canyon.

The next two shots look along the big slickrock area, first looking toward Peak 6460, then looking back.

Here's a view looking south toward Parunuweep Canyon from the saddle to the east of Peak 6460.

And here's a closeup of the rattlesnake I almost stepped on. After returning home, I looked it up and it looks like a Hopi Rattlesnake. I've since bought a handy rattlesnake guide to help me identify them on my trips.
