What a fantastic day in the granite goodness that is the Agua Caliente Hill area (I don't know - is that the Santa Catalinas, Rincons, both or neither?).

Tons of water from the snow still melting just a few hundred feet above our heads. The road to Mt. Lemmon actually closed just after noon on that day because it was so crowded up there... We were glad to be down in the desert.

I'm sure it was amusing to watch us try to keep our feet dry at first... We took of shoes and socks for the first few crossings. Then we got to the multiple crossings at Agua Cailente canyon and decided that it was going to be wet feet or retreat. Sirena and I don't have retreat in our skill set - so we plunged in, got wet, and enjoyed the heck out of it. Lilo, my trusted 4 legged companion, most nobly tested the water's depth for us first (I think she was a bit puzzled as to why we were making such a fuss of the water's temperature).

All in all, a fantastic short day hike with big payoffs no matter the season. Someone took the tequila from Tequila Spring, though - left nothing but a glass knuckle locked to a tree. :(
