This area was green and luscious with all the rain we've been getting this season. The hike was done in conjunction with a campout at West Turkey Creek (actually at the trailhead where we ended our hike). Full details of the route can be found on Randy's triplog (http://hikearizona.com/x.php?I=4&UID=&O ... 53869&ZTN=). Part of the trail I had seen before in another Randy loop (I think he's getting to be a bit loopy!), but with much different trail conditions before the rains. There was a ton of water this time and there were even more wildflowers! It was simply amazing. The long time that this hike took can't be blamed on my Tibberitous this time, though, but rather the side effects of the antibiotics that I took for my bug bite I got the previous weekend on Wrightson. Leg cramps as a side effect? Who would've thunk. Note: Some of the trail was hard to find at times, due the overgrowth of rasperries, mostly. I'll put up with the pinstriping on my legs, though, since the raspberries were red and juicy. It was nice to begin and end the hike with water crossings as well.
