The hike up Boy Scout Canyon proved a bit challenging, and only three of us did the upper portion beyond this waterfall. Here Russ climbs the waterfall with the aid of the knotted rope, without which the slippery rocks and force of the water would have halted our progress. Good footwear such as old running shoes or Tevas proved to be valuable gear.
The hike up Arizona Hot Springs Canyon included an assist from a 20 foot metal ladder to get us to the two hot springs pools, in which we soaked for a while. One was occupied by an older fellow who was naked, but "gallantly" stood for us as we walked past him, apparently proud to show off his shriveled "shortcomings."
The a hike of an additional 2 miles took us through beautiful slot canyons and finally to an area with numerous petroglyphs, a few of which are below.
The whole crew:
Back row (l to r): Pat, Charlotte, Bernard, Trudi, Sue, Dave, Rattlesnake Bill (our extraordinary leader), Marlene, and Jack;
Front row and kneeling: Meg, Jim, Barb, Russ, Chuck, Carol, Erin (co-leader), Lisa, and Lonnie.
