There is an area in St. Louis Canyon whereas there was a major rock slide a few years ago. Pam stayed away from the stream and chose to battle with the sand. Good choice Pam.

We got back in our car for our 3rd canyon- French Canyon. Before we get there, we went to the Visitor Center for a bathroom break and a bottle of water. (also a stop on the tour).

These first steps are a little on the icy side. The white stuff you see in the center of the photo is ICE. We did not go in. If you made one slippery step you would be in the cold icy pool. I went as far as the ice.
The large ice boulder like chunks are now gone.

Recap of the day. Excellent day to go scouting out the hike for the weekend. I would recommend wearing waterproof boots. Or better yet, rain boots. I received these boots for Christmas for just this purpose.
