Cliff textures in Thousand Creek Gorge, northern Nevada. Hiking in the gorge requires some painful brush busting through head high rose bushes with needle like thorns and some avoidance of poisonous plants. So overall a good experience with a few small wounds that will heal. Some narrow sections are boulder choked resulting in a few murky cascades and pools. Making this water drinkable would necessitate some serious settling and filtering — still questionable in my view. Wildlife includes pigeons and raptors so it isn’t always silent as their utterances resonate off the cliffs.
