We were out about 5 hours but actually hiking for only 3 of those hours, as you can see by the photo of the GPS that shows all the pertinent data for the hike. The area reminded us a lot of Arizona's Agua Fria watershed by Arcosanti or perhaps those barren mesas over by Springerville, Arizona. Tex Creek joined Willow Creek and the combined flow empties into Ririe Reservoir, one of the so-called BuRec potato ponds. It was really fun to be out on a walkabout once again.
THANKS, Bill & Karen for your gracious guiding gift!
