Hiked :y: the First Water-Second Water-Boulder Canyon-Dutchman loop as a two night backpack adventure. Camped late Friday in Garden Valley. That whole area was torched with almost nothing left right now. Found quite a few pools of water in Second Water Canyon suitable for filtering. Boulder Canyon is the same as always and camped again near Palomino Mountain. Hiked out on the Dutchman where fire damage is bad in some places and non-existent in others. Made for a good weekend.

Lots of pooled water in the creek. Didn’t visit the actual spring.
