Part of the weekend camping trip to the Pinalenos. Started about 1030 Saturday morning. Since we were hiking down into a canyon we weren't too concerned about storms with our late start (however below the waterfall area things could become dangerous with increased stream flow if there was a big storm). Turns out none of this was a factor. The flow in Ash Creek was moderate as you would expect during the monsoon season. Everything was wet and lush. Summer wildflowers were happy as heck. And so was I. This is the magic season!

Everyone went down to the Ash Creek Falls area, with Charles extending his trip much further downstream. There is no way I was going up on that observation rock, but the coward's view just below it to the right wasn't much comfort either. Next time I will hike further down the trail to the vantage point that AzWaterRat found. It gives a nice view of the falls (more head on versus side). Anyway, we took a nice break at the top of the slickrock before heading for the waterfall turn around point. We went back via the bypass route, partly because we didn't want to deal with some of the downed trees along the way. Don't worry, there was more on the upper reaches of the trail too, but the worst spot was near the slickrock. I was taking my time the whole way, savoring the glorious vegetation and taking pictures to my heart's delight! :)
