I've always been curious about this one and since my other plans around the ECC area was put a change because of the nearby Tinder Fire which was such a sad sight to see driving by.
Incredibly high winds made things worse I'm sure and even deep in the canyon wind was still an issue.
Not a drop a water until the 2 mile point and even then it was just a couple pools with the largest being about 10 feet.

Feeling uninspired, looking at a mass of deadfall and knowing it probably wouldn't be truly scenic for a couple more miles, I left the canyon and headed up to the rim.

Spooked a few whitetail out of their bed but other than that no other wildlife for this little trek.

I'll have to save this one for an overnighter to truly appreciate and make the most out of later this summer.
