Led a group of friends up to the well earned views that reside in the impressive canyon segment of Park Creek.
As we started I knew we would be in for a treat since the creek had well over double the flow from my last visit almost exactly three years ago.
Trail is still in great condition thanks to the cattle, hunters and hearty canyoneers one of which recently ribbon marked the upper portion of the trail.

We lucked out with such a great weather window as the majority of the day was warm, had plenty of sun and even a nice 10 minute spurt of pleasant mellow snowfall.
Aretta was kind enough to hang out with Payton above the twin falls while I led Dave and Josh down to the base of them and then to finale, PC Falls itself gushing in full glory.

Getting the hard work done first on this hike makes for a leisurely stroll back down soaking in the expansive views of the mighty Tonto Basin that never get old.

Poppies are really beginning to come to life along the middle section of the trail in the burn area.
