My second trip into this amazing area. With all the rains lately, we figured it would be a sure thing for the waterfalls to be gushing. We were not disappointed.

We opted to park at the windmill and hike up the road and hike down directly to the pools. We were not sure how much water there would be in the canyon and would make a decision to either hike up the canyon to make a loop, or hike back up the to the road for an out and back.

Once we got to the Lower EK Tank, we could hear the creek/falls roaring. The closer we got, the louder it was.

The path was almost clear now. It seemed like more of a bushwhack last year going in. The flowers were starting along the ridge going down. Last year, about 2 weeks later than this hike, the entire hillside was covered in wildflowers. With all the rains, it might happen again.

We make it to the creek and it was really going strong. Colored brownish yellow, it was still getting the runoff from the storms of last week. It was clear we would not be going up the canyon for the loop. It would be miserable and probably dangerous to attempt it. A few brave souls of climbed up the ridge at the first falls and made it over to the little ridge that overlooks the pools. Such a beautiful location. The falls, the pools, the towering canyon dotted with spires and cactus. This place is truly a special place.

A bunch of pictures, a little lunch and we started back up to the road. The stone wall is still standing guard along the ridge.

An awesome day in the Pinal Mountains for sure.
