Revisited the Indian Springs wash down to the bootleg slot canyon and was pleased to find it bereft of the typical deadfall which completely block the trail. The bamboo thicket down by the springs remains impenetrably abundant but fortunately, unlike the saguaro, does not seem to grow out of rocks, so it can be circumvented if you have boots with a high traction quotient. The wash itself is lined with canyon walls consisting of what I will call volcanic breccia but that is because I am not a geologist. It’s probably something else but there are all kinds of different rocks strewn along the trail so it begs for a geological docent to conduct an interpretive hike before it gets too hot. The Chuparosa were starting to bloom. I include a few photos of rocks and flowers.
