Paria adventure continued (see previous TR)

Another cold morning start but plenty of blue sky...for now. :problem: After venturing up Buckskin for about a mile and a half just to check it out bit, we turned around and headed back to the confluence and started the second leg of our journey. The rain rolled in just about the time we got our tents set up and continued all through the night.
