    Nice lighting. Makes me feel like I'm sitting there in the picture watching the sun go down -- wish I was!

    Is that the Tortilla Creek Im thinking of up by the wanna-be biker hangout on Apache Trail? Dang dude, I was just looking at that thing a few weeks ago on the way back from a run on Tonto Creek and it had plenty of water. If youre up for sharing some info on the thing I'd appreciate it. From studying the maps I think I see how you set up the shuttle. If that old road is blocked off due to the wilderness, how was the walk in? Looks to be just over a mile.

    THats the one; as far as your sense of direction and put ins...you are correct sir...no gauge though; you can call the restaurant there at Tortilla Flats when the area gets enough rain..ask them about the raod conditions and if its possible to cross the creek..if they say no yer good to go!...there is nothing to extreme on that run, but bring good creeking shoes, you will need them...btw there are plenty of feeders and Tortilla is a first order stream up high..the more of it you want to run the less H2O you will have upstream.. go when its crankin!

    Thanks! If I see a chance come along to hit that thing, I may ask you a few more questions. I've been "paddling" most of my life, but the majority of that was canoeing as a kid. As far as AZ. creeking Im fairly new. If there are any nasty drops and such it'd be good if I knew beforehand. I have good creeking shoes, but from the topo it looks like Tortilla drops quite a bit in its 6 mile run, so that had me a bit concerned. And I know that "nothing too extreme" has a whole different meaning to a lot of folks. :)
