It was a beautiful day for a hike. This was the first time I have tried the Hackberry area. I had seen the entrance off the Second Water trail many times but seeing as it's unsigned I hadn't tried it. If I hadn't known where it went today I probably would have not taken it as about a hundred yards off the Second Water trail the Hackberry trail widened into a huge mud lake, I was sinking in the mud a good 6 inches with every step. It didn't look like there was a way around it so I just figured I'd clean up when I got to the next stream. That turned out to be no problem as First Water creek was flowing nicely. I did the trail in a counter-clockwise direction. I originally came out at the horse lot, so I backtracked to the old corral and tried the other exit along First Water creek to get the full experience. That and several short excursions added a few miles to what would have been an even shorter hike. On a day like today I really didn't want the hike to end.

The Super's are just about the greenest I remember ever seeing it. Any where there is dirt there are grasses growing. I just hope they don't get long enough to end up being a fire danger for this summer. Very few wild flowers so far.
