    The window. Honestly, the photos do not do justice to the scale of it.

    We saw a ton of these neet bugs. They like to feed on the Agave.

    My favorite photo from the whole trip... The hike to the window was amazing. This was a real treat near the end of the trail.

    Finally ready to post my first batch of pictures. The guest ranch we stayed at was amazing, we had a really private group of cabins, and an amazing view. So Ill start with pics from there.


    View from the cabins.

    Scott found a nice place to pass out in our front yard.

    A beautiful Aphonopelma sp we found at the ranch, not far from our rooms.

    The day after we got there we went hiking in Davis Mountain State Park. Here is one of the incredible views.
    [​IMG]


    This seemed to be the theme of the trip. Except for Benedict Arnold. He got away scott free both times.
