1st trip
Was supposed to be in the Grand Canyon, but with everything going on, my friends bailed and I bailed at the last minute, too. Ended up going down and spending the weekend at Patagonia Lake, which is better than nothing...

While there, I decided to get in a little meander through the Sonoita Creek preserve.

The most interesting thing on Sonoita Creek trail itself is a little slot canyon. Things get nicer after you drop down to the actual creek.

When you get to the creek (which was some flow), you see the remains of the railroad bridge. Crossed over, and headed down the railroad grade for a mile or two. Very green, the trail is quite overgrown, and there are lots of cows.

On the way back, I headed up the Vista Trail for a half mile or so. Vista was OK I guess, but nothing special.
Took Black Hawk Trail back up to the spillway. I think this trail was more interesting than Sonoita Creek trail, with an extra creek crossing and views down into the canyon (which had some small waterfalls).
