The floor of the canyon was a coarse gravel like stone that didn't seem to match the walls at all. When we looked up, we could see areas of similar dark colored stone high above. I am fascinated by the formations. I told Craig I wish I knew more about geology.
As we walked thru the canyon it was easy to imagine a roaring rush of water ripping and scoring the stone walls.
Wednesday was our last day at the Stovepipe Wells park. We enjoyed our time there very much, and I think we did most of the walks that were accessible with our little car. There are many more canyons to discover, but we don't like to drive more than a couple of miles on the gravel roads with the Accent, and the other trails are farther in.
Maybe the next time we are here we will rent a Jeep for a few days. They are available at Furnace Creek.
Because it was our last day, I decided to give the pool a try. The gal at the reservations office said it was heated, and I had seen some teenagers swimming the day before. There was a large solar array on the roof of the game table area enclosure.
It may have been heated, but it was not very warm. Craig put a toe in and declared he would stand by as my life guard. Once in, it wasn't too cold, and I did enjoy it. It is January after all!
So ends this chapter of our travels. The next morning we packed up and drove to Las Vegas. Another world!
