this morning we finally made our way up above the falls at workman creek to the lookout tower. when we got there, there was a government worker trying to make his way in - apparently someone had not just locked it, but had also bolted it shut. he said there was a burn in progress in the area, and they were making precautions in preparation. those mesa hotshots we saw the day before were just the beginning. not a prescribed burn, but they were letting it burn a bit before they sent the hotshots in. we never saw any smoke - any chance of fire anywhere. just the taped off areas. the taped off area included the abbey way trail, btw. i guess we will find out more in the coming days. we stopped a few spots on the way down, too. i think it's the first time i stopped to see the falls. :)

There are just two switchbacks left. And another half-mile to the destination...
