There was just a trickle of water there

Merry Christmas!

Honorable mention to Baltazar and Sandy F for doing a significant portion of the hike, going past Murietta Falls before looping back down to Del Valle. And thanks to Sandy for the hands-on geology lesson that made the last 3 miles educational and fun!
