Took a quick run up to badger springs for a nice day hike. My friend has been bugging me to do this hike since we met in 2005, and finally the stars had aligned and we were able to make it up there. I was a little discouraged at first due to a group of yahoos with rifles, that seemed to miss the many "no target shooting" signs along the way. They proceeded to tell us that technically they shouldnt be shooting up there, and got the "I used to be with the sherfiffs department way back when" speech. As to somehow negate their blatant breaking of the law. We didn't hear any shots and didn't see them again after the trail hit the canyon :worthy: Not much water at all, and what was there was muddy. Nothing that was very inviting for a swim as we had hoped. It was a very nice day with a cool breeze, and just being out of town was good enough for me. Hiked upstream first then downstream from the trailhead. We didnt make it very far downstream as it was high noon. The temperature seemed to rise 20 degrees and the breeze disappeared in a matter of seconds.
