Moved from the TRs in the Platinum Section, and finished it up with some photos.

Final photo (thanks, Norm). On the trail.

White Rocks is a good hike if you want to push yourself just a bit. The elevation gains are somewhat lengthy, but moderate in steepness. A few quick ups and downs thrown in. But, again. some pretty nice 'green' for the desert.

An overview:

Nice pic Historian.

P.S. You look great. Can you re-enlist? I'm sure the US Army could use another "Lean, Mean Fighting Machine..."
By the way, when you are done with your cane the BLM would like their sign back. :icon_lol:

It's not a cane, Xav. It's a 'Non-motorized Transportation Assist Device'. To be used in conjuction with LPCs (Leather Personnel Carriers). Believe me, I begged the 1SGT of our UH-60 Medevac squadron to take me to the Afghan with them when they left a couple of weeks ago. All he said was, "How old are you Tom". I said, "Yeah, so I'm 66, but I can kick your ass in a PT test First Sergeant. " He laughed. Top and I soldiered together in an artillery battery for many years before he transferred to the choppers. I do miss it everyday though.
