After the Trail Head Police got me to "correctly" re-position my truck 6" to the left, we both took deep breaths and got out of there in the new breaking dawn.
Tibber Teva was in a whole new world this morning, taking her time snapping pictures to and fro.
Today's mission was to see new areas in the Supes and to get to the Master Map. We were 1 for 2.
Our first stop was at a neat little area at Reeds Water. I'm a sucker for Windmills, and this one did not disappoint. Continuing on the Coffee Flat #108, we headed into Randolph Canyon. This is a real pretty area that was one of my favorites on this hike. The views continued on into the Red Tanks #107, still in Randolph Canyon. We seemed to never be more than 1/2 or so the entire day from water of some sort, and this canyon was no exception. There were only a few areas on this stretch where the trail go a little tight.
The hike down Upper La Barge never disappoints. The Poppies were bustin' out in patches. Herman was not home.
The map is still a secret to me. I know who I have to talk to to get directions. Mr. Supes WF.
I did get to see the Charlebois Spring area and was surprised that at 3:30pm, on a perfect weather Saturday, there was not a single Camper / Backpacker to be found.
From here is was about 2.5 hours to make our way back to the Peralta TH, finishing up w/ Headlights.
