The first couple miles were on a spur ATV road leading south from Harris Spring Road.  The road dipped down into a wash a short distance south, so I parked and hoofed it the remainder of the way.  This added a couple miles to the day- but it was better than getting stuck in a wash.

Headed south on the ATV road.  The Joshua Trees gradually gave way to Junipers as the elevation increased.  I think I could have gotten the Outback to the end of the road but my paint job would have suffered.

The snow appeared to just be present on the north facing slopes and my La Madre ascent ridge had a southern exposure, so I was good.

Bit of a dip down into a wash then 2000ft of uphill.  The highpoint on the horizon is the first of several false summits along the ridgeline.
