The park service has locked the gate leading to Lower Coyote Canyon due to a washout caused by the last big storm. So...we'll need to go somewhere else.
This is still a day trip. Bring a lunch.
After we meet up at Xmas Circle, we'll head for the Calcite mine, then to 17 Palms, followed by the Pumpkin Patch for Lunch. After lunch we'll try to get lost out in the flatlands and eventually find pavement somewhere to head for home.
