We were moving on from the area that day and had a couple of hours to kill before heading down to Payson so we decided to do Wire Pass to the junction with Buckskin Gulch as it had been a few years since we had done it before. There seemed to be a few more places with a drop of a couple of feet than we remembered but nothing that could not be handled easily. When you enter the slot the temperature drops and feels more comfortable.
When we reached Buckskin Gulch it was totally dry and we carried on down the Gulch.I wish we had set up a trip to the end as the walking conditions were very good and there seemed to be something better to see round each corner. We saw a dead bat and a live Tarantula. With time against us we reluctantly turned around and headed back.
