Forecast was 60% chance of rain all day. After driving up through a lashing wave of downpours and VERY near lightning strikes we headed in under a light rain. Houston Creek was running about a foot deep whereas it was dry a couple weeks ago. Luckily Tonto was still low and crystal clear in spots. The weather cleared up the moment we reached the Tonto! JP Speedboat and I went a bit further up creek to hit up Pancho's three mentions. IMO the nicest area is just after the first waterfall where water cascades down a good 30? feet.

Fabulous day, JP rocks!

Having horrible results with Chacos I was told how great they perform in water. Unfortunately I was even more disappointed and left with bloody raw feet from strap burn...ugh Luckily JP lent me her wool socks and I made it out alive. These water hikes drain me seriously. I was exhausted at the end of the day with thoughts of a 17 mile roller coaster hike to Reavis in eight hours :sweat:
