Second trip in two months to my favorite summer playground. Water level down about 2 feet since June trip. Went in with 5 friends (3 Jug virgins). The top-water algae is forming in the open shallow areas at the beginning and end portions of the creek. Other than that, water is still gently flowing and clear. Had to wade through some of the pools that were swimmers last month. The slide was a blast and fast!! My buddy Cory hit the slightly sloped bowl at the bottom and caught some air down the last few feet before splashing into the pool at bottom. It may have been the extra water I splashed onto the top this time...or maybe the slick algae growth in the bowl. Cory and I had to each do it again. Too much fun to pass up. We carried in a heavy rope bag with harness and biners, but never used it as someone had left behind some decent rope and webbing for the jump. Everybody jumped. No rappelers this trip. Hot, hot, hot hike out. Very happy to reach our cold water cache we had left up top. We had the place all to ourselves today. No one else stupid enough to rough the heat. Great time and an awesome lunch at Jake's Corner Bar. Hot flame broiled burgers right off the grill and a few cold Dos Equis capped an awesome visit to the Jug.
