Well it was a great day to head into the Superstitions. There was a broken overcast keeping the temps down and a nice breeze. The parking lot at first water was packed when I arrived at 10. I passed 2 large scout groups on the way down the trail as well as several families and couples out enjoying the great temps also. I did not see much in the way of wildlife I did however surprise some mule deer but they took off before I could get the camera out. All the washes and creeks were bone dry I did not see any water at all. The last half mile or so I started feeling sick and by the time I got home the Cardinals were stinking on ice and I was running a 101 fever. The hike was great but apparently I now have the flu.
