Once again I made reasonable time on the trail (for me), arriving at my selected lunch spot shortly before two pm. There’s a nice set of low falls here, and from the top of them it looked like the pool would be large enough to bathe in. It wasn’t really, but it was nice and refreshing, and worth the tortuous route I had to take to get down to the pool. But I jump ahead of myself. Before I tried out the pool I heated up some water for my noodles and filtered a load to drink. I’d run out of water not long after leaving the bluffs, so I was ready for a drink.
All in all I spent around an hour lounging around and soaking up the views of the creek.
