I couldn't resist the urge to go check this spot out after all the rain. Heading out the 60, the Flatiron and Ridgeline were totally obscured by clouds. On Kings Ranch Rd it was so dark and gloomy that I could barely recognize any part of the mountains. Got to the trailhead just after 8:00 and there were already four cars there!

The hike in wasn't bad but as soon as I entered the canyon the clouds rolled in and a light rain started. The sound of running water kept me going! Got through the wash and up to the slick rock and Bingo! What a sight!! I hiked to above the large falls and it got darker and started to sleet a little. It was awesome! Came back down below the falls and followed the stream back to the wash. I could have stayed all day! But after my boys saw my videos they want to go tomorrow to see it for themselves!
