Absolutely amazing day hiking in the Supes with Kyle! There was a 90% chance of rain but that didn't stop us. We started from Peralta and made our way to the north. The first four miles were very foggy but relatively dry. As we neared Black Top Mesa a light rain started. We busted out our rain coats and continued to the summit. The views up there were spectacular. Weavers was partially covered by clouds...quite a site!

We returned to the Bull Pass Trail and headed to the east towards Charlebois as the rain became heavier. We discussed returning on the Terrapin Trail but neither of us wanted to go that way so we continued east. We took a lunch at Charlebois during a light rain. Right as we finished the rain picked up and we made our way south towards La Barge Spring. The hiking over these next seven-ish miles was cold and wet. By this point our feet were soaked. There was nothing we could do so we continued.

The final section of hiking was absolutely beautiful! Water was everywhere! Washes that have always been dry on previous visits were flowing strong. There were also small waterfalls falling off Bluff Spring Mountain and other areas throughout the return. I was so glad we made this trek today! We got lucky and it stopped raining for the last three miles. I was glad to get back to the car and back home where I finally dried off and warmed up! The misery was well worth it! The Supes in the rain is something special!
