Got in at 7am, very windy and light rain seemed like it was clearing up. Hiked down with some goo-off, scrubbers and rags to soak up any runoff. Found the swastika rock, you will see the before and after in the picture below. It was made using a very difficult to remove, bronze metallic spray paint. There is a lot of graffiti in that zone, I started to remove some but I wanted to focus on the swastika and then work on some of the stuff that is down by the springs.



I got down to the springs around 9am, rain was starting to pick up and I realized that there was no way I could cross the creek because the waters were raging. Nobody in sight. Couldn't get to the rock by the rope swing with all the graffiti and seemed like the creek level was still rising. So I decided to hike back, drive around and hike in through bradford. Was really cool to see the waterfall near the beginning of the hike totally full. When I got there I picked up some small trash items and worked on the graffiti on one of the rocks between contemplation pool and hot springs marsh. Around 3pm, 4 young guys showed up from bradford who were visiting from the bay area. Was hoping to have the place to myself and I had drained the anniversary pool and tried to scrub a bit, but filled it back up for them since it was the only accessible pool. Hiked out around 3:45pm and near the end I saw a huge rainbow. I have to say I love the colors of the desert landscape when everything is wet. Here are some pictures of the womb and creek bend where the phoenix pool was impossible to see. Could this level of flooding damage the phoenix pool again as well as other pools?
