Hell's Gate Wilderness - Tonto Creek

The two photos above of Liz show two very different faces of Tonto Creek. This past weekend we hiked through Hell's Gate Wilderness and down into the deep canyon carved by Tonto Creek.

We camped right near the edge of a great water hole and after swimming up river through slot canyons for 1/2 hour discovered multiple waterfalls, grottos, and more water holes.

This place is made out of magic and awesome - I can't wait to go back and it's only 90 minutes from Phoenix!
