The last .5 mile of the drive down to the creek on FR 242 was much rougher than I was expecting (most of the road was great up to the descent). My forester was fine though...take it slow and easy :pray:

We were on the wrong side of the creek for the first .3 mile or so. The east side is much easier to follow and has much less bushwhacking than the west bank.

I love the juxtaposition of the lush riparian area with the rugged cliffs covered in saguaro.
And the small narrows section is perfect. We were the only people out here on Saturday.

The creek was flowing well. I'm interested in mapping the extent of surface and subsurface flow for the entire creek.
