I parked at the Cross F TH. There was a light rain that stopped 5 minutes after I started hiking. I was surprised to see that the Alder spring was dry. Adler creek had a very light flow to it.

I took one of the washes down to the lake and had lunch. By now the sky was mostly sunny. As I headed back from lunch, the western sky turned black. Soon there was one of the localized thunder storms. There was numerous lighting strikes on the west side of the lake. The black cloud covered the entire sky. I quickly put on the rain gear (again). This was the first time I got to use my waterproof fishing gloves. The gloves keeps the hand dry and very warm.

Through the day I seen about 10 javelinas. There was pair (adult and baby) that started to charge at me! I yelled at them, and then they stopped and ran the other way.

The temps dropped fast when the sun dropped. It was so cold at the end of the hike that the Jeep had ice on it! The windshield was one sheet of ice.
Next time I want to check out the Alder Creek wash down to the lake.
