off road driving
Creek was flowing well at all the road crossings. Got to tub after 9 mile hike from Camino Cielo, no hot water flowing!
Amazing views with plenty of twists and turns to keep the drive interesting! Must see if your vacationing around the Santa Barbara area. Mountain views go on forever and be sure to take a camera.
