The view to the northwest, before descending into the canyon.
The view ahead, this time with sunshine.  Shadows are very dark this time of year.
A trickle of water is flowing in the first canyon.

A lot of water is flowing through here.

Close to the road, there are several wrecked vehicles in the canyon.  A lot of motorists seem to go off the road on these twisting mountain roads.

Kyle wanted to go back to First Water Creek, to see if there was more water after recent rains. There was.

People who don't live in the desert will probably wonder about this odd fascination with a little water. We don't see much of it, though, so flowing water is a big event.
