Reynolds Creek 2010

I received a PM from Alex (aka big_load);

"I'm looking for a rental-accessible Sierra Anchas hike (or group thereof) that can get me to some good views, or (even better) some ruins. I'm looking to burn 3-4 days..."

I PM'd some suggestions, but also threw in a teaser that I was willing to act as a guide to an obscure set of ruins accessible from Reynolds Creek Trail #150. Next thing you know we are meeting up at the Stapley/Superstition Freeway Starbucks at 6:30am Sunday.

My F-150 led the way into the Sierra Anchas off Hwy 288 and up FR410 while Alex followed in his rental Hyundai SUV. I was pleasantly surprised to see FR410 freshly graded with nary a rut and all wind fall trees chain-sawed and removed. We parked the vehicles at the FR410 terminus and reviewed all the topo maps Alex had with him prior to hitting the trail. Showed Alex a couple of choice camp sites near the TH and multiple hiking loops for his Sierra Anchan Adventure.

With Alex mulling over his multiple options, we started hiking up Reynolds Creek Trail #150. A split-log bridge near the TH is a new addition to Trail #150 (as were the multiple bear scat piles!). Still some waning pockets of colour along the trail. The Pueblo Canyon overlook took care of on of Alex's priorities (views). We continued off-trail to look after the ruins request on his checklist (Site V:1:162 per Richard C. Lange's "Echos in the Canyon" http://www.statemuseum.arizona.edu/rese ... _rpt.shtml and Preston Sand's reconnaissance). Multiple bugling elk could be heard (but not seen).

Back at the TH by 4pm, we had time for some choice beverages (Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout and Left Hand Milk Stout) before I left Alex to make camp near the FR410 terminus and continue his Sierra Anchan Adventure over the next couple of days...

Heading out on FR410, I had to make a couple of stops to capture some fall colours and Reynolds Creek water action. I was also treated to some glowing sunset colours bracketing Four Peaks as I made my way home.
