I didn't go further as this seemed to be the last hurrah from my photos looking down on the area.

Slight understatement :lol:

I started scouting out a short approach to Geronimo Head. Which panned out great. Plus I found an even better approach for future trips.

Upon reaching the area I call LaBarge Canyon View I switched up my destination. Four days after the 2.5 inch rainfall I wasn't expecting to see much "running" water. La Barge was down to a trickle between puddles. So I decided to head down Geronimo's Ravine and check out the "Upper" ravine I missed out in the past.

Nothing over exciting in the ravine but the surrounding cliffs are sweet. I made it down to what I thought was the choked out section I couldn't negotiate on my previous trip to the area. Only to find out there's a 20-25 foot fall just above the choked out section. The water was only maybe 5 gallons per minute. What made it cool is I doubt many people have seen this area. You wouldn't see it going up because you'd bypass the area at the choke. And who comes down this ravine if they aren't going up it!

Not excited about the bushwhack down the lower ravine I skirted off east. There was some fun easy rock climbing but I ended up in more bushes so that part didn't pan out. At least I know another area to avoid :o

I came out on SR88 at a fifteen foot drop which was a slide of pebbles. Timing was critical as the cars whizzed by every second. They probably thought I was nuts :lol:
