This is a fun little remote canyon, though very short. I started the hike just as the sun was cresting over the surrounding hills and began raking the scree slopes with warm light. The peace and quiet was shattered when I flushed a couple of whitetail deer near the start of the trail, which sounded like a herd of charging bison due to the thick underbrush and dried leaves. Once my cardiac arrest was over, I continued along the creek finding only a few very small waterfalls. The box area was definitely the highlight with massive boulders to navigate and great pool reflections beneath stunning canyon views. It would be great to be here with a higher flow as the waterfalls would be more numerous and impressive. Perhaps another visit in the Fall...
