Did some hiking and exploring in Peter's Canyon and Lower Tortilla Creek. Peaked into Peter's Cave and it appears it may be occupied as we saw a sleeping bad and propane tanks. Went a little further up canyon to the point we had to either swim or continue climbing with some exposure so we decided to call it and retreat. Did get further than previous attempts. Climbed out of Peter's Canyon and dropped into Tortilla Creek to check out Hells Hole Spring which surprisingly had very clear and running water. On the way back to the parking lot we took a detour to check out Fragile Arch, which there was a signed trail maker. Great day of hiking :y:
