    We had a great time. Lots of people at the swimming hole on Saturday afternoon but it was awesome. The hike out was as we all expected but we made great time.

    Mike has the exact figures but it was arond 1 hour and 30 min down and 2 hours and 10 min out

    Thumbs up

    Great trip.
    Quick Highlights:
    I love that you totally forget you're in AZ from the moment you get there on.
    I had fun with all of it, but doing the trifecta where you took the rope swing, splashed down 40ft below where you could swim into the unerwater tunnel up the other side, dive under the fall's current, then end up in the cave behind them was really fun. Funny too that most people were like "where'd they go??" Or when you popped out from behind them, "where'd they come from?"
    Mmmm wild blackberries with every meal
    Getting told for the second yr in a row that we had "hands down, the best camping set up." Even though we were at different spots.
    We did though. This time we had water a couple feet off on one side and rock on two of the others. And then a canopy of tree above us.

    Crap! I didn't realize this was the cool swimming hole. I saw pics from last year's trip right after I joined the site, but spaced this was the same trip. I still couldn't have gone, but my jealousy-o-meter just went up!

    Can't wait for pics. =)

    I didn't take as many as usual b/c I wanted to keep playing in the water
