The CCC created the road with bridges that are also dams. So the road crosses the creek several times creating these wonderful, inviting pools. Today was perfect for reflecting. It is about a 3-mile walk down the road to this relaxing spot, behind Tram Stop #8. Laying on our backs, we watched the clouds skipping across the mountains. Henry was fascinated with the smooth rocks, how the water had worn them and was pooled in pockets. Small water falls today and the water level is fairly full. A Road Runner came out to say hello and created a nice distraction. Our volunteer friends said to stop by so we did for some fresh cookies. This Saguaro had all clouds pointing towards it saying LOOK AT ME!
