This was a roller coaster of a hike with slightly warmer temps than I would have preferred, but still a great hike. We also added in the Cornucopia-Thicket Spring loop.

We saw a White-tail deer at the start of the Cornucopia trail. He was no more than 20' from us when we both surprised each other. We broke for lunch at Thicket Spring and while checking out the spring I ran across a Arizona Black Rattlesnake enjoying a nice cool drink.

Great views along the way at the high points. Cornucopia at the beginning was a little over grown; the West Fork trail #260 was really overgrown. At one point my right forearm from the elbow down was covered in blood.
