In conjunction with a campout along the strong flowing West Turkey Creek, Cindy and I did a nice loop hike using a car shuttle. We went up the Saulsbury Trail to the Crest Trail near Flys Peak, then followed the Crest south to Chiricahua Junction, and finished by going down Mormon Canyon Trail to our camp spot. The Mormon Canyon and Saulsbury Trails don't see many hikers and were very overgrown and hard to follow in places (my kind of trail). It was my third time in the last two months crawling over some of same deadfall in one section. We got rained on at camp Saturday evening, but for the most part the storms on the trail Sunday left us alone. Wet and wonderful!

This was right next to where we camped.
Mormon Spring was really putting out the water, more than 3 gallons per minute.
