Walter and I went out in the woods, looking for a new camp site. We scouted along the canyon above Lava Creek.
I wanted to walk in from Lost Creek Road, but someone was already parked there, so we went in on a little spur road and bushwacked back to the canyon.
We followed the ridge above the canyon upstream until we found a small tributary that spilled into Lava Creek.
The water here is accessible and it looks like it might flow year round. It is pretty brushy, but flat – I could camp here, but it is a bit of a hike. I want to see if it is easier coming in from the north, but that will have to wait for another day. We went a little further until the stream forked again.
