Variation of a hike we did almost 2 years ago. This one was legal, staying off the private property that was not marked in the direction we came from. My son Ben joined us this time.

A chilly morning on the Spring Valley trail. We took this down to the Garfias Wash, which was even chillier in the shade.

We added Hell Canyon and threw in a little loop around a mound in a wash. We had a cool little little 30' down climb in the wash. Hell Canyon is a pretty little area, and worth the side trip.

From here it was back to an unnamed canyon to connect to an old trail. Next a steep climb to the top of Governors Peak. Vast 360 views from up here, including a view into the closed down Castle Hot Springs Resort

It was more or less all downhill from here back to the car.

An enjoyable day. Temps got real warm (Relativly Speaking) in the early afternoon.
