Lauri and I had a great time in Fish Creek Canyon. Looks pretty dry at the bridge, but there is running water and plenty of pools upstream. Lauri spotted a ringtail scampering up the wall right off the bat - very cool, first one of those I have seen. Had a blast navigating the boulders and pools, saw plenty of lizards and frogs and one lovely tarantula (yay!). Nobody else was in the canyon, which is always nice. Saw a crew inspecting the bridge and practicing rescue techniques on the way out. Then enjoyed some prickly pear ice cream at Tortilla Flat.
