I wanted to do something big to start the new year, but I've been stuck inside with a cold. This isn't the "big" hike I was looking for, but it was a good one and a nice way to break in the new camera.

Started by area 7 and headed up Mesquite. About a mile in, I went off-trail south to a saddle where I went east to a small peak. Upon looking at my GPS route, I was just shy of Point 2242. After taking a bunch of pictures, I headed back to the saddle, over a faint ridge, and dropped into Dripping Springs Canyon. Went up to where it bends to the south to check out a small landslide I unknowingly walked passed last time I was there. I turned around with no intention of heading further up the canyon as my boulder nemesis was next in line and it was getting late.

On the way down, I made a short trip up to the bottom of Fall Factor Wall. It was about an 80ft climb up slope to the bottom of the cliffs. I couldn't tell for sure because of the vegetation, but I'm pretty sure there are some dens where the cliffs meet the slope. Would love to hike to the top of that thing sometime. Closer to the waterfall, I had to get around a large pond that had cliffs on both sides. Luckily one side is negotiable. Took it slow as a fall would not have been fun here. I made the obligatory stop above the waterfall. It's hardly trickling right now. Got down to the bottom of the falls and took the Waterfall Trail/road back to the car.
