1st trip
It's not often I get to hike in the White Tanks in July these days. This was Plan B, as Kelly & I wanted to avoid storms. Cool, cloudy, and drizzly when we started a little after 6:00 this morning. We started on Waddell, then headed up Ford Canyon. Ford Canyon has always been my favorite trail in the While Tanks. The granite up in the wash was slippery with the light rain, which required some caution in places, but we had the trail all to ourselves. We decided to come down Willow Canyon to see if the spring had any water in it. It did, but it was gross, smelled awful, and was swarming with mosquitoes--I donated a lot of blood today. The spring is a far cry from the 90's when it was full, always had running water, and was a nice swimming hole. I pointed out the ledge we used to jump from as teenagers, if anyone tried that today, they'd end up with a broken leg. Quick hike back down Willow and Mesquite Trails back to the car. Temps were still in the 80's when we finished.
