Incidentally, I've seen plenty of evidence that Tikaboo Peak has been visited since my trip last year. Somebody marked the trail with red reflective
tape. Nice effort, but the tape doesn't stick well and rips easily when baked in the desert sun. The yellow caution tape looks fresh. Oh, and
somebody left a trail of pistachio nut shells.
At the camp site on the false summit, there were 6 small sealed water bottles left behind. A nice touch in the event somebody doesn't bring enough
water with them.
What bugs me is all though the peak has been scaled, nobody bother to photograph the base. Yes, it is an order of magnitude more difficult to carry
all the gear, but it would be nice to see more photographs of the base.
Photographing the TTR takes very little physical effort, and virtually nobody photographs it but me.
