I have done this hike 3 times before this one. It is a nice change once in a while.

I usually take the trail in, and take the wash back, like we did for this trip. Due to all the rain we had this year, there was a lot more vegetation in the wash and some of the make shift paths were overgrown.

There was a lot more running water than I have ever seen on this hike and in some areas, offered some refreshing wading (wearing Teva's). However, in some areas, this yellow-green slime consumed some of the water and it looked like toxic-waste. I didn't post these photo's, thinking it may scare away a hiker. I assure you there were no rusted barrels anywhere in the vicinity.

I was disappointed that I didn't run into a snake or a Gila Monster like my past trips through here. They must have known I was carrying a camera this time. Better luck next time.

Enjoy this hike if you try it, and always carry out what you carry in.
