I consider climbing back down to the wash and trying a less rocky route up over the hill, but I might as well continue upward

Hiking down Woods Wash, I take a look around the historic site and start hiking up an unnamed side canyon
I come across an animal trail, and follow it when possible for the best route up the canyon. Due to obstructions here and there, it's easy to lose it occasionally, only to find it again shortly thereafter. There's Tortoise Shell Mountain in the background.
