  1. I had to laugh at the name of that trail. Buena Suerte, indeed.

    I was puzzled by your reference to wax-making. I couldn’t figure out why there would be that kind of industry in the middle of the proverbial Nowhere. Then, I looked through some articles about candelilla, and found this especially interesting one that’s full of every sort of detail. In the middle of the article, it says that stands of the plant seem to be most abundant at elevations around 2,500 feet — pretty much in the middle of your elevation range.

    After I read the article about the candelilla, I reconsidered my interpretation of the East Contraband trailhead. I’d assumed all the normal kinds of contraband that surely moved through that area over the years, but I’d never considered plant smugglers!

    As always, the land is fabulous, and the biking does sound like fun — especially downhill.

  2. Hi Bob,

    Just like to thank you for keeping me on your list, producing this work of art and your appreciation and care for these wonderful wild places.
