Yet another beautiful Arizona morning! My left knee was still pretty sore from Humphrey's on Monday, so I had to slowly pick my way amongst the river rocks that I would normally have hopped quickly between. I think I enjoyed the top section more than the bottom toward the 14 foot cliff. The top is all Coconino Sandstone, which makes for a great slickrock playground and sweet sidewalls. When the canyon hits the basalt flow, it just doesn't quite pack such a punch. It was still gorgeous down that way, but I think my knee was making me grumpy, and I lashed out at the sea of gray rocks around me :lol: . I really enjoyed all the pools and puddles up in the Coconino as well. Many had frogs, fish and even tadpoles. Oh yeah, I saw a rattler...well, I heard him as a stepped over the crack he was hiding in, caught a glimpse, and moved on as quickly as possible!
