Birthday backpacking trip.
The desert is ok when there is water in it.
After driving the last stint in rough 4lo, we calculated it was faster to walk and add some mileage. Noel likes to say, "We came here to hike didn't we?"
The first part was a lot of skirting with the packs on.
When we hit my guesstimated spot, it measure up perfectly for camp. We decided to day-hike the other stuff the next day.
The pools got plenty big and we made it to a decent falls.
The ruins were a surprise both in the creek and across it when we were coming out.
Luckily the GPS had more juice or the road we looped out on may have gotten us in some trouble the times it had completely grew over (easy from the air, not so much from the ground). The sun stayed just behind some nice wispys in preparation for the rain the next day.
Good times.
