Tonto Natural Bridge State Park (day 2)

Even though this is not an overnight camping park, we were allowed to pitch our tents and spend the night. Nice to have State Parks sponsor meetings! The spring and bridge were 'discovered' in the late 1800's and the water was diverted to water the grounds and a bit of farming.
Some remnants of a simpler time

An early morning walk to the side/cliff falls we had seen on the hike the day before.
And just beyond that one is this one:

Above the natural bridge, I noticed a herd of javelina. There must have been 20 of them!
They didn't seem too concerned by my presence until I got close enough for them to spook in groups of 4 or 5.
They can run fairly quickly when they want to.
