Great hike. The water flowing through the creek was actually orange, which I'm guess is due to the runoff from Bryce Canyon Nat'l Park. Loved every minute of it. Great colors and just a handful of people.
May 1999 with D-bo. Plan A was to be an overnighter loop from Bull Valley Gorge to Sheep Creek, then out Willis. Partway down Bull Valley, the sky in the slit above started looking gray and we got nervous and bailed. It turned out that what had frightened us were just some wispy clouds. We still had daylight, so we drove around to Willis and went down to Sheep Creek and back. Then drove up into the mountains to get our camping fix.
