:D Thanksgiving Day 2012 !! :D

On this unseasonably warm Turkey Day 2012, Trish and I picked this first time Western Superstition loop hike for some needed exercise to later justify consuming her planned evening dinner feast for four.

Our planned hike for this loop was per the hike description writeup with the exception of a planned return back to the Canyon Lake TH on TR#103.

We did not care at all for this lower off-trail hiking section of La Barge Creek nor this hikes lower off-trail hiking section of Boulder Canyon.. just too many large, never ending creek rocks to negotiate, too much overgrowth in some sections, and not enough scenic views. We did enjoy the views south heading north up the Boulder Canyon Trail but the very warm :sweat: afternoon uphill on this Trail #103 was a little too much for the two of us on this unseasonably warm Turkey Day 2012.
