Great stuff.  Never saw a single other person there. Thanks for jogging my memory. Haven't been back at all this century.

Never too late to go.

No joy again this year.  Decided to approach from the south this time, starting in Candelaria.   We made it to the gauging station, but the road was washed out completely, just the Rio Grande River.
