I didn't expect to finish the Kelso Dunes hike so soon; it only took me about 45 minutes to reach the top.

I'll ride back to my tent and prepare a day pack. I don't know if there's anything worth seeing at Coyote Springs, but I'll find out.

Coyote Springs is in the lower part of the Granite Mountains (middle-right in this photo) and I've never come across much information about it, not that I've looked very hard. On the other hand, there's plenty of information to be found about the more popular upper parts of the Granite Mountains.

I would like to go higher in the Granite Mountains, but won't have time today.
