All the pics I have posted so far are in the vicinity of The Doll House (circled in green). This map shows our route in from the Hans Flat Ranger Station. It was about 42 miles to the campsites and it took us right at 4 hours to get there from the Ranger Station. That was Friday.






After spending Friday and Saturday nights at The Doll House we headed for The Maze Overlook Campsite on Sunday morning. This route was about 39 miles and took close to 4 hours again as I recall.



These shots were taken about where the red circled area is on the map, looking eastward generally.

This is the last batch. These are all from The Maze Overlook Campsite on Sunday night. The sun was already set when I started shooting, so they are twilight but you get the idea.

Here you can see Perry's sleeping bag in the center and the propane firepit in the lower right.


The formation called The Chocolate Drops.


Setting up camp.








Cooking dinner!




View from the dinner table.


There you go. That's all I have.

If you haven't been to The Maze you really need to go. It is a LONG drive but more than worth it.

The only adjective I can find that fits it perfectly is "magical".

Great shots Dan!

I could pack it all back up today and head back out there, especially after seeing your pics, but I am pretty sure I am upside down on hall passes..

I wonder if my hall passes are issued the same as work vacation days, off the calendar year...

Looks like fun. I am really disappointed to have missed it.
