I wanted to summit Malapais but do it my way. What was I thinking? I hiked 26miles in the Supes and saw one person on trail all day. The weather was perfect and there were several cars at the Peralta TH but I guess I was out there. I took Bluff Spring trail to Dutchman and stopped at Bluff Spring and the pipe wasn't even dripping. I continued on to Peters trail and then took the spur trail to the top of Squaw Canyon. From there it was off trail exploring. I stopped at a camp below Malapais and then pick a route and made my way up. The views up there are truly awesome. You can see First Water Horse lot, Canyon Lake dam, the back side of Lower La Barge Box and just about anything. On the way down I took a detour toward Deering Canyon with my permission slip :lol: and then started back. I didn't make it back to the Peters Dutchman intersection until 4p so I knew I would finishing in the dark. For some reason I passed on Terrapin trail and decided on Peralta. I haven't taken Peralta in a while so it was harder to follow with a headlamp and slowed me down some. It was cold coming up to Fremont Saddle but seemed warm coming down to Peralta TH. When i finished there were still 5 other cars at the TH.
