The skies were threatening water, and Claire and I needed a cool hike that would take advantage of that. Gotta love water in the desert. Barks is one of my favorite places, and it's got options for hikes from a couple hours to a full day. We went the opposite direction of how I usually go, getting Cardiac out of the way at the beginning. There were rangers at the trailhead, checking to make sure hikers starting out knew where they were going. We flew up the hill and were treated to views of the canyon and wash ahead. Eventually dipping down into it and boulder-hopping over the flowing water. Kivah definitely had a better time than when we went to Reavis Falls last year. She was able to do most of the rock-hopping herself, and even gave in to the water here and there. When the canyon walls began to disappear, we looked for the easiest way up the walls of the wash and scrambled out, heading across the desert and to the Dutchman Trail. Kivah chased a rabbit for a couple minutes, then followed us out. We walked along the trail above the trailhead, and got some nice views of the opposing cliffs against the clouds and impending dust storm. The weather on the drive back made us glad we left the mountain when we did.
