Although we did arrive a bit early for the full explosion of Color in See Canyon (see Trish's trip log below), the Canyon was remarkably different than when I hiked it last Spring. My wife and I began the hike at the top then, this time Trish, Michelle and I started from the lower trailhead. The Canyon was beautiful, and I can see it almost being surreal in it's full glory. During our quick jaunt on the Highline, we stopped for a rest and heard drumming and singing in that recognizable Southern Plains style. Was there a Powwow in the area? This experience really lent a peaceful aura to the hike.
With the beautiful color and great hiking partners, the Canyon was a wonderful.
Afterwards, we enjoyed a leisurely car camp above Chevelon Canyon, and with Trish and Michelle's camp cooking, this was certainly a luxury camp! A nice fire, great conversation, and a beautiful sky led us all to dreamy contemplation, and I slept soundly despite the chilly 30's temp!
In the morning I took a short but fairly strenuous side trip down into Chevelon, scouting out a route for a future backpack. There is color beginning in Chevelon as well. I'll post pics of Chevelon's early glory in my personal gallery.
This was a great trip with wonderful hiking partners! Happy Birthday Trish!!
