Catalina State Park - Exploratory

November 2018

It started with a Mirasol camping trip to Catalina State Park. While researching enough trails to keep the teens busy for three days, we discovered that there's much more to Catalina State Park than we ever imagined.

A lightly used trail ended in an impressive dry waterfall, but we managed.
We've had an extraordinarily rainy fall, so a bit farther on we came across this delightful tank. Last skinny dip of the year!
Continuing our explorations a few days later, we found a group of metates just off the trail.
And farther upcanyon, these dazzling clear jade pools!
Hooked on saguaro cactus!
