Tuber Canyon? (I sort of think not but worth a try)

After an extensive GE search, you've got me stumped!

You gotta post your TRs more, you sure get to some out-of-the-way places!

Any ideas where I found this delightful cave?

Or some other higher elevation area due to green vegetation?

Nope, not Titus, and not exceptionally high altitude, either. This did happen to be the greenest weekend I've seen in DV over six spring trips there!

Given the ephedra, small juniper and topgraphy, I’m going to guess Surprise Canyon in the vicinity of Brewery Spring.

Nope! It’s somewhere in the Amargosa Range.

Sat for nearly a week without a peep…

This is Cave Rock Spring, on the east slope of the Amargosa Range (Grapevine Mtns.) about 5 miles north of Titus Canyon! A deathly quiet canyon with lots of history scattered on the ground.

LOL, I just saw your picture! But I can't say I immediately recognized it, even though I've been there before! Good one!

As for mine, those pictures were taken at Lost Spring. That is in a side canyon off Anvil Spring Canyon. It's also part of the route to Sugarloaf Peak.

Ah! I had a feeling it was down in that quadrant! I've never explored down there.

Interesting. That's really in the middle of nowhere. I've been to Willow Spring in that area but not Cave.
