The "road" was fine, water pooled along the edges but the desert's sand had soaked up most of the recent rains.

We crawled around a bit, enjoyed the 360 degree views and then decided to try our luck again by driving down to the South Fork of Palm Wash. Last year Pam and John took us to a neat little slot canyon there and we knew that road would be more narrow and much rougher. We hoped that the rain hadn't washed it out.
The road was rougher and the narrow wash was much wetter than Fonts Wash. Last year John was able to drive all the way to the mouth of the slot, but the passage was slippery and deep this time so we parked our Jeep and hoofed it the rest of the way.

The canyon contains interesting rocks and formations.....you know how we love interesting rocks!
|the water line....glad we weren't here yesterday!|

After we dropped Steve and MonaLiza off (she had some shopping to do) we decided to take one last look at some of the famous metal creatures created by Ricardo Breceda. We had seen most of them, but a there were a few left for us to find in the desert.
