Back in April Bruce threw together the stellar Nonesuch Rocks - Pinto Creek Loop. By the time we got to Pinto Box we were beat. The sun was setting. Albeit a mild wicked cool area there was no way to enjoy it fatigued and rushed.

Pam mentioned Pinto Creek for an autumn meander and my eyes lit up. At the Pinto Creek / FR242 crossing we were shocked to see it dry. Guess it was spring melt back in April. Pam said it was running last December. To be dry a day after 2-3 inches of rain seemed odd.

Just north of the crossing the creek resurfaces on through the box. Somehow I managed to stay dry hopscotching the entire day. We went two thirds through the box to the down climb at the boulders. It was a great day.

Big Daddy's was closed and Pam warned the only other option was nothing special. Perhaps she meant everything but the crispy chicken fried steak at Butcher's Hook... omg it was awesome!
