Potrero Chico 08: Day 13 - Follow the stream

So remember when you were a kid and you'd go exploring? The trail in the woods, the stream bed, the old warehouse or the train tracks? That's what today was like for us. After a late start, and not a lot of motivation to climb, we decided to rent some mountain bikes and check out the interior of Potrero Chico. The bikes weren't great (they were rentals after all) but they got us around without any problems.

A good ways into the park we noticed a stream, and at that point the mission had been set: find the source and any sweet waterfalls in between. After the cool looking tree

we set out to find deeper waters. What we found was a cool little waterfall that provided a good deal of entertainment later. We hiked the streambed all the way to the start, hoping to find a pool. What we found was some concrete and the stream disappeared. We then made our way back to the waterfall and had a bit of fun.

Exploring like that took us all back to some very happy times in our childhoods. Next time you get the chance to do something like that, just do it.
