Wandered into JackRayMarkland looking for water and geology.

Drove down and parked at the ladder. Dropped in and crossed over with hopes of dropping into Mesquite. It was a lot more challenging to find a route down than I had anticipated, but I finally figured it out. A lot of tall grass kept me on my toes avoiding the snakes that were out warming themselves in the spring sun.

In the bottom, pools of water in the bedrock were scenic, but overall there was much less water than expected, and no flow. I went downstream to the old road crossing and cut back one canyon closer to the highway before heading back up to the ladder. It was a fun and scenic couple of hours but would be much more impressive with flowing water.
