Itchin' and scratchin' to get backpackin'

It's safe to say my hobby is landscape photography. Much of my downtime is spent on Google Earth, Google image searches and mapquest. My friend and I had our own harrowing experience a year and a half ago in Coyote Buttes detailed here,, but we went on a whim, hadn't researched much and only had two hours there before dark. Turns out there are actually two buttes, North and South, adding more to an already overwhelming experience of natural beauty. During winter, freezing temperatures apparently deter visitors = ) and the BLM website actually has available permits (albeit attained via lottery) on their website in the near future. Admittedly, a permit may make the visit a bit less adventuresome, but it would be legal.

For perspective on the bowl image above, I'm leaning against the far wall toward the center in the image below.

Below is a snapshot of the surrounding terrain.
