Trip down to the Huachucas to hike up to the high point of the range (9466 feet). I enjoy this hike, but rarely do it, opting for the easier Carr Peak most of the time (because I am usually camping up at Reef Townsite or Ramsey Vista). This one was done the classic way, from Miller Canyon, versus other popular routes, such as in combination with Carr from the Ramsey Vista trailhead or from Montezuma Pass.

Recent heavy rains made this very enjoyable, with strong flow in the canyon. I took quite a few photos on the way up, but after leaving Tub Spring, I got the low battery warning message on the camera, so only a few shots were possible after that, as I had forgotten my spare battery. ](*,)

There is one heck of a stretch of raspberries along the Crest Trail near the aspen zone. And they are in their prime right now. :D

On the trip back down the mountain, two twin spotted buzztails made me aware of their presence with that cicada-like rattle. I like these little devils, as they are kinda mellow (at least the ones I've seen).

On the way down, I came across probably the best little hidden pool along the stream, complete with very colorful rocks. I may have to actually take a dip in that one on the way down next time, especially if it is as sunny and warm as it was this day! :)

Since I didn't get to finish photo documenting this one to my satisfaction, I may just have to go back there next week and finish the job. ;) Tough assignment, right? :lol:

How To Put Out a Campfire
A campfire must be extinguished by drowning it with water, stirring with a shovel, and repeating that process until the campfire is cold to the touch. A campfire is still a danger if it has any trace of heat, and must not be left or abandoned. Wildfires can begin by abandoned campfires that rebuild heat on windy days and then blowing embers ignite surrounding grasses and brush.
