Great trip despite the weather. The initial trek to our campsite was a bushwack through rain and wet vegetation. We were also in a hurry as what little daylight we had left was fading quick. We ended up with just enough time to set up camp and replenish calories by the fire while observing the thunder/lightning show above the canyon before retreating to our tents. Saturday we made a day hike to the lake with plenty of creek crossings, route finding and petroglyph hunting along the way. Rain finally stopped at about 2pm and we had a pleasant hike back to camp. The creek was flowing nicely and although we didn't see very many fish, there were millions of crawfish. Truly a beautiful canyon to spend a few days in with lots of great campsites. Thanks to nonot for planning this trip and keeping the fire warm.
