1st trip
I've always wanted to do this one. Triplogs talking of of loose, fist sized rocks, (Ankle busters), mud, hard to find track.... had this pushed to the back burner. Wanted to go to the Supes, but with Flatiron closed, I'm sure the rest of the Supes had their own "Black Friday" thing going on.

I needed some miles and fresh air, as I have not been able to hike much the last 3 weeks or so.

So up to Cave Creek for a 7am start on this one with my buddy the tortoise. It is rocky and loose in many places... but not too bad. We were both surprised that we had not seen any Javelina or deer. The country back there is perfect for them. Then the eagle eyed turtle spotted 7 or so White Tails on the west side of the Mesa on our way up.

We took a loop at the top of the Mesa to check things out. Stopped at the obligatory peak marker. I was curious if it'd be possible to get on New River Mesa from the top. It appears it could be done with little trouble.

On the way back, we decided to throw in a loop using TR252 (Limestone) and taking that to the Cave Creek.

Beautiful weather out there today!

How To Put Out a Campfire
A campfire must be extinguished by drowning it with water, stirring with a shovel, and repeating that process until the campfire is cold to the touch. A campfire is still a danger if it has any trace of heat, and must not be left or abandoned. Wildfires can begin by abandoned campfires that rebuild heat on windy days and then blowing embers ignite surrounding grasses and brush.
