At milpost 12.7 we have been climbing up along the hillside since Russell. As I make my way up the grade, I spot this pipe off to the side. I wonder if this is a remnant of what I have labeled as Iron Pipe 19. It is about the right location for the drainage pipe.

Looking ahead we will be rounding one of the many sharp curves to come. With the higher elevation comes the Pinion Pine trees mixed in with the Juniper.

This view is looking back to the southwest. The high voltage lines over Russell are visible in the distance.
