Plan A was to hike a new trail in the Greasewood Mnts, arrived at the TH to find about a dozen guys in camo, Crap! I forgot that it was opening day of the Jr hunt. Plan B was the Shake trail, more hunters. Plan C was the Bear Canyon trail, more hunters. I almost gave up and drove back home, but decided on an old hike I use to do many years ago along P Ranch Canyon. Drove back down Stockton Pass and into the canyon on an unnamed jeep road. Hiked up the wash to Gillespie Well then back. The rock formations in this canyon are quite impressive with many balanced rocks and a few small arches. Left the canyon after dark and for the first time this fall I had to turn on the heater for the drive home!
