Another great day playing around on the lake.
Taylor was the only one brave enough or crazy enough to jump off a cliff.
Then the tubes came out. I have no desire to tube and it was fun for me and Steve to watch them.
everyone safe inside the truck.
Our cameras battery was low so this is the only picture we got of the flash flood. To get back to the hotel we have to cross a bridge that goes over Antelope wash. It is a famous hike. The flash flood filled up the wash which is 40-50 feet deep and spread out. It was crazy watching this wall of mud roaring down the wash. You could smell the mud. We got to the hotel and the wash ran behind it. They haven't had a flood like this for 8 years. It even ran out on the main highway and they had to shut it down. We were lucky we left when we did and got back to the hotel before they shut everything down. We played the next day until 3:00 then headed home. It was a great trip and fun to spend that much time with our children.
