After my day trip through the canyon a month earlier, I went back to the BLM the next day and secured a 2 day permit to camp under the full moon. The main focus for this trip was to explore Hell Hole canyon. Entered from the east entrance and headed in through The Nature Conservancy area to Turkey Creek and the beginning of the canyon. Made my way down stream to the entrance of Hell Hole canyon, dropped my pack here where I knew I was going to camp and continued on down to Booger Canyon. Explored & rested a bit at Booger before returning back and setting up camp for the night. Beat the sun up the next morning, packed up and entered Hell Hole canyon.

Hell Hole Canyon was Awesome! I enjoyed this side canyon more than Aravaipa canyon itself. Very lush foliage the first 1/4 mile in and soon had me hiking around many curves & bends that at one point had me a little disorientated. Hiked about 1.5 miles in passing many hanging gardens & one nice spring before the creek ran dry and I turned around.

There is still a lot of AZ I have yet to see, but I just can't imagine it getting much better than Aravaipa!
