Hike w/ kids. Met grandparents at parking lot at 6AM, temps were cool and hiking was enjoyable in the mostly-shaded wash. Trail was easy to follow, navigated the few forks by memory and made it down to First Water Creek via the usual drainage. Kids scrambled up numerous boulders within the creek and even created their own little rock-climbing club that us adults were too old to join. Breakfast stop at the spring, then backtracked up the 'official' trail and quickly worked up a sweat in the now-toasty temps. Easy hike back with one more stop, this time for a bathroom break... hiking with three kids over the last few years has made me a proficient cat-hole digger. Overall great way to spend Mother's Day morning (and give their mom time to sleep in!)

Lowest I've seen it, and plenty of algae, yet there's clear water if you reach for it, and there was some dribble down to the creek.
