My first time in Boynton's Backyard and it was a great time.The 29 degrre start only seemed cold for the firsr hour. After that the temps felt pretty good. I didn't make it all the way up Secret Mountain but maybe next time. :o The views were great. There was one place below the saddle that had red-pink leaves on the trees and all over the ground that was really really cool!! Sorry, my picture does not do it justice.You had to be there to see and feel this section. While holding on to the side of the cliff area trying to make it up Secret Mountain a helicopter came flying down the canyon Below us.That was kinda cool. Great hike and great company. Thanks to Dave for asking, Joe for picking the hike, and Bob for driving and route finding. :D
