    Hiked a portion of this trail in conjunction with Upper and Lower Graver Wash Trails.

    We started off at Lower Graver Wash Trail #9904 in the early afternoon. The trail was well marked with lots of cairns along the way. It was a bit rocky along the way but a nice easy trail that wound mostly downhill. After a mile we crossed Apache Creek and started onto Apache Creek Trail #9905. This trail seems to be a cow trail, and we were hiking behind a herd that kept running just a little ways ahead of us and stopping. It was rather amusing... except for the big bull that kept looking at us!! We stayed on this trail for only a couple miles and camped for the night just past the junction to Upper Graver Wash Trail #9906. In the morning we woke up and hiked out trail #9906 to FR95B, which we took back to our vehicle near the Trail for Lower Graver Wash. This was a pretty trail with water available along the way. Will probably do more hiking in this area, as there was much more to see. This time was a quick overnight, as it was my 9 year olds first time backpacking.

    Foliage
    There were still a few trees changing, but many had lost leaves already.

    While attending HAZfest a group of six of us made a hike through the Apache Creek Wilderness. This is such a beautiful area and very enjoyable hiking! Along our trek we stopped by the swim hole and then continued south. About a mile later the skies opened up and the temps dropped. We continued hiking in the rain and made the most of it. The scary part was the thunder and lightning. It was too close for comfort! Luckily the weather lasted about an hour. We continued on and noticed the ground was dry. Soon after we reached the cars and then walked the last mile back to camp which didn’t receive any rain. This was a nice hike and a good group.
