I'm going to have to bow out of Saturday, we are still going up but my wife has an agenda now, I'm not sure exactly what it is but I think she wants to look at property or something. I should've seen it coming. hahaha.
Bull Dog Canyon is great in the rain. Several years ago picked up some Panda Express and drove out there in a steady drizzle. Parked on the ridge before you drive down the wash and lose sight of Usury Pass Road and ate. Love the desert in the rain.
