Daniela finally had a day off so we set out to play in the water! The road getting down to the creek was totally washed out badly from flood damage. It was much more difficult to navigate than any of the other previous times I’ve visited. 4Low got us through some soft muddy sections but it was pretty sketchy.

The water was actually quite warm anywhere it was shallow but felt nice in the swimmer sections. We headed in a little under 2 “canyon miles” before deciding to break. We enjoyed some snacks and beverages and just chilled in the water for a while. After we had our fill, we headed back taking a few more breaks enjoying some swimming.

Beautiful as always in there but you could definitely tell a flood had come through. There was also quicksand type mud that would go up to your knees in some sections! I was happy to see that the zipline had been removed. One of my previous visits, I’d seen a family using it but it was gone, so that was nice!

The “road” where there is a water crossing is hard to follow in its current state. I ended up driving a bit too far to the left and missing the correct way to link up with the regular road. It got really hairy…. :scared: I was convinced Tessa was going to get stuck but thanks to some very helpful spotting by Patrick and Becky, we got back on track. I had every single button and extra 4x4 feature in use, and Tessa handled it like a champ. Another fun day in the creek!
