This was a great morning to visit Tonto Creek. Began by following FR1553 for entry, but after less than a mile I decided to hike through the wash that is just west of the road. Water flow was almost non-existent although pools of water remained from last week's downpours. The wash itself is a myriad of colors- blue, green, gold and sandstone colored boulders. The early morning sun wash just beginning to crest the hilltops and further added to the vibrance. Found a few implements of earlier mining days and ultimately made my way out onto Tonto Creek. After visiting "the Box" I retraced my steps to the wash and climbed to the peak that serves as a terminus to FR1553. There I got the birds-eye view of where I had been below. All-in-all it was a great morning.
