We finally made it to the paved road...I'd shaved 20 minutes off the drive. We stopped there, shared a cold one and enjoyed some cold pizza before we drove back to Torrey. We drove in and out of storms and showers most of the way. We talked about our original plan which would have us checking out of Austinís in the morning and leaving for a night of camping at Goblins State Park. The idea of potentially camping in the rain as the storm front moved through wasnít appealing. Our idea of hiking into Little Wild Horse Canyon had also lost itís luster. After our experience earlier, we were ready for a break from canyons that might flood.
