1st trip
My first time hiking out in the White Tanks! I'm a native, but never found my way out here for one reason or another. :o
So I dipped my toes in the pool by doing this shorter loop hike. There were plenty of pools to dip your feet in by the way! I really loved the spring on the Willow Trail! Saw a rattler hiding in a bush near the Mesquite and Willow junction.
I hiked the loop clockwise by doing Mesquite first. Mesquite Canyon seemed boring to me, but Ford Canyon and Willow were much prettier! Good hike and I'll come back and do other trails in the area! Maybe the Summit!
PS: So many people when I got back to my car at Noon. Everybody here to watch the waterfall! Go early and avoid the crowds! ](*,)

Kind of disappointed by the weak amount of flowers. Some poppies, brittlebush, lupine, and mallow, but very sparse.
