On the way down, we noticed what looked like a pool on top of the little peak by where we parked.
Zoomed in on the peak. We decided to check it out.

The next morning we decided to look for some petroglyghs that were shown on the topo map nearby.
On the short hike to the petroglyghs.
The map marked this site as Steam Well.
This must be the wellhead. It smelled like rotten eggs.

There was some patterns I never seen before.
