|Scorpion Bay This
tiny bay is a surprisingly easy transition from the Monadnock area to the
Crystal area. Very often, narrow places make for difficult terrain, but
not here. Only 1 hour hiking from west to east on a clear track. The nameless
side-canyon to the east is a very appealing place where the streambed is
a good access to the river at Willies Necktie Rapid.
2004 October - Camp 4 in ravine below the east arm of the bay. Pothole water in Tapeats from recent rain. Continuing up onto the shelf above the upper Tonto cliff for faster travel going east.
