Backpacked to Juniper Basin campground. The first 2.5 miles (to Tanque Verde Dome) had nice Brittlebush, Fairyduster, and Indigo!

I was very tired when we got to camp so I took a nap - note: this never happens, I'm usually up exploring while everyone else is napping!

Explored the canyon a bit downstream and found what would be a 20 foot waterfall if there was flowing water. There was a bit in the stream bed/pools for filters.

We awoke to 29 degrees. By the time we hiked out it was already over 70 degrees. Talk about temperature change!
