Chagoopa Falls in Kern Canyon
Bridge across the Kern
Hangin out at the Kern Hot spring
This is a ~95 degree pool between the main spring and the river
There is a really hot tub behind the fence.
An empty middle tub
Nice little private tub, but it was too hot!
Leaving the hotspring. Clouds were forming.
Our plan was to move camp about a mile down canyon, so we wanted to get back before any rain started.
Kern Canyon and Chagoopa Falls
Seemingly harmless clouds, but experienced sierra hikers recognize this noon buildup as something more.
It turned into a typical sierra afternoon rain
Back at the bridge
Second campsite along the Kern River
It can't decide whether to be sunny or rainy
Paige's birthday gift!
I found this unopened MGD in our camp and gave it to Paige since it was her birthday
Another boot cooking night.
