After hiking both sides of this canyon recently I wanted to go back and explore up the main drainage past the "falls". On the way in I found a nice rock in the middle of the wash to enjoy all the hummingbirds. They were all over the place! A couple times they zoomed within inches of me (especially when they were chasing each other). Too fun!!

Up canyon I climbed up a narrow slick rock area that led to a wider, more vertical chute fed by water that comes off the cliffs. There were some small pools in the sculpted rock but no flow. Worked down from the there to the middle of the canyon and over to above the "falls". There were some larger pools here and some colorful rock formations!

This is a really cool hike for as short as it is!!
