This was my chance to finally get into the lower La Barge Box. I've hike all around the area and been on the Battleship. We did this one from First Water TH taking the Second Water Trail past Garden Valley down to the intersection with the Boulder Canyon Trail. From there we continued on past the Indian Paint Mine and the dramatic northern end of Battleship, before entering La Barge Canyon. Then it was upstream between the towering walls of Geronimo Head and Battleship. The boulder field kept getting larger until we made a left turn by some impressive jagged rock spires and entered a totally delightful slickrock area. Made a right turn and took a well deserved break by the numerous pools there. Not much water there now with our dry spell, but that made the hiking easier (easier isn't the right term...just drier rocks! :lol: ). This is a common turn around point I guess and we did as well. But rather than backtrack the way we came, we took the hikers trail up to the saddle by the southern end of Battleship and on down into Boulder Canyon. From there northbound to the Second Water junction, then back the way we came to the cars. Pretty warm day for this time of year, but nothing we couldn't handle.
