A couple of days ago I slipped on some gravel beside my RV and fell on a landscape timber. I had some sore ribs for a while, but today I felt up to taking a hike.
There is a short trail – no more than a mile I would guess – that loops down into a canyon beside the campground.
The trail is quite steep going down but switchbacks make it easier to navigate.
At the bottom the trail follows the stream for about a half mile and then climbs back up to the campground.
It’s quite pretty walking along the water with the cliff walls towering over you. The stream is overflow from the dam that creates Bluewater Lake. I was told that a certain amount of water has to be released for the Indian reservation down below.
At the bottom of the canyon you can turn upstream and hike to the dam. That will be for another day.
