Driving out stopped at the pine covered head of this canyon and started down. Appeared to have twin heads and we were in the smaller one. Suddenly broke out to some really pretty slickrock and pools, the first drop about 15 feet and easily bypassed. Second drop maybe 25 feet then went down a steep slickrock run. We saw some encouraging small alcoves so skirted it on the right to get on a bench to check out the alcoves. I stepped in a yellow jacket nest apparently and ran screaming down the watercourse to a pool. About 10 stings I guess in all kinds of places. First aid kit contained benadryl, advil, vicodin ( for big problems) and antiseptic cream. Two advil and a benadryl and on we go. We checked out the alcoves, no sign, found a big fresh pile of bear poop. Hiked on down, canyon bouldering up, then into another rock layer and becoming more gentle, old spring, and soon we took an old trail, difficult to follow except for old ax marks amputating limbs on trees. Road walk back, looking at pretty rock the Sierra Ancha is known for. More bugs, mushrooms, water snakes (no pictures too fast) and another good day.
