|Cool cloudy day for a hike. Not much water action at the falls but plenty of wildlife. |
Spooked a couple deer near the junction for the falls.
Saw a large roadrunner at the falls.
On the way back saw a desert tortoise on the trail shortly before the Three Tanks junction. A young woman coming up from the other way (obviously not local) was worried that it wasn’t in water, and wanted to take it to somewhere with water. I had to explain it was in its natural habitat and that it wasn’t a turtle, and it really just needed to be left alone.
Not far down Three Tanks was the highlight: a Gila monster! I almost ran into the poor fella. He was very deferential but also camera shy. Sharing the trail with a Gila monster made my week.
