A lovely day hike along a little desert stream in the Pajarita Wilderness. There is no official trail; you just follow the stream. The first mile or so is easy, but then canyon narrows and deeper pools are encountered. To avoid wading, especially when the creek is running high, you may have to do some fancy footwork along cliffs and ledges. Two miles downstream, Penasco Canyon enters from the east. Don’t do this hike if there is any chance of flooding.
