Another "wash day" at MMRP...

Starting from the Four Peaks / Horse Staging Area, we crossed the road and then hiked a mile or so of the Technical Loop. A service road brought us over to Stoneman / Pemberton Wash. From there, we hiked south until we came to a feeder wash with which I'm familiar. We followed this wash across Pemberton and continued west paralleling the southern part of Pemberton for quite a ways. We eventually crossed Tonto Tank and then found another wash to take us back down to Stoneman where paid a visit to the well rusted 1960 Chevy Impala. From there we continued on until we got to Pemberton. From there, we simply followed the Shallmo Wash Trail back to the parking lot. We might have made the day even "washier" by hiking in Shallmo Wash proper instead of on the Trail, but by that point we were appreciative of having a firm(er) surface under our feet.

We saw a deer in one of the feeder washes. We saw lots of rabbits too.

We also picked up three mylar balloons along the way. The washes we hiked don't get much human traffic - this litter had been there for a while.

We saw many ocotillo in bloom. Also, both the cholla and saguaro have buds; a few already have blossoms.
