Rain threatened most of the day while going threw, but never started falling in any quantity. Water levels were pretty good, but not 100% full. An owl was hanging out watching us in canyon before flying off. This was a better canyon than anticipated! We had to build an anchor as one was completely gone. After reading on it later, it was the one off the small sage brush. We set it up around a rock formation about 20ft back of that.

Completely dry except for one easily stemmable pool. Anchors in good condition.

Burro is currently very dry. All water is avoidable for those with some stemming skills. There were 3-4 very small puddles/pools where this was required. No bugs.

This was our first trip through Burro Wash. Beautiful canyon, took a first-timer and loved it. The canyon is very dry right now with all water missing or easily avoided until the last short stretch of shallow narrows.

It was in great condition. There was intermittent water, but wetsuits weren't necessary. We even had skinny girls with us on a cool day and we were all fine. Anchors were in good condition, though the single bolt over the first required rappel was a little sketchy. We just made sure to back it up for the first person.
