My first trip up to Boynton, his backyard and Hart Well Canyon.
The Red Rock machine was busted when I pulled in, so I took my chances and it worked out.

A chilly 36 degrees at the start, hard to believe we were begging for the sun in the canyon to warm us. Saw Ruins #1 high on the cliff but did not make the Climb. Joe led me off to Ruins #2, that he remembered as steep, loose, and just plain dangerous to get to. Not so much.

I had to talk Joe into making the climb past the turnoff to the backyard and continue to the end of the Boynton Canyon trail. I think it was well worth it. Great Autumn colors and played on the red rock shelves at the top for awhile.

On the way back down, we met a couple of guys as we were making the turn to the backyard. The guy asked us if we were at an intersection in the trail, Joe, without missing a beat said "Nope, we're just looking for Beavers." The guy said OK, and just continued up the Boynton Trail.

The Backyard trail get's a little sketchy to follow in places, mainly when it comes out of the drainage. More good colors and interesting rock formations just before you start the steep climb to the saddle.

Joe saw a man in a brown suit.

We ate lunch at the Saddle. Noon is definitely the popular time for chopper tours.
We had 3 come over, plus the Red Baron.

We hit some more ruins on the way down Hart Well.

I didn't care much for the road walk to get back to my truck.

Good to get some barbs in with the Teva again today.

Perfect Weather!
