We hiked up a nice wash into a gorge
until we came to a tank (rock water basin) that we couldn't get past.
Actually I left Lou and climbed up a rock slide and into the area above the tank. The gorge had narrowed but continued easily onward. I stopped after 1/4 mile and returned. Maybe another time. We had jalapeno loaf sandwiches and bananas for lunch overlooking the lake then headed back.
On the way we saw a rock arch and stopped to take a short hike to it.
This nice ocotillo flower was near where we parked. Today was kind of hazy and cool. Not a good solar day even though the sun was supposedly out. The wind was kicking up so we disassembled our sun shade and brought in the awning. We're leaving tomorrow anyway. Dinner was a shared smoked pork chop with Spanish rice and fresh asparagus.
