What a great hike! Went with a friend from work on a rainy day, really light drizzle. After crossing a huge wash we managed to find the TH and signed in. It had been raining for a couple days and the area was nice and green. After a while we came to a canyon with a nice amount of water flowing through it (Probably dry without the rain). Shortly after crossing this "Raging river" (note the sarcasm) we lost the trail and it became pretty rocky. We started up a wash that was more of a climb at times. After reaching the top of this portion we could see Governors peak over the false peak. It was just about this time that the clouds came in. It was spectacular! We were covered in fog and couldn't see more than 10ft. Luckily when we reached the top the fog broke just enough to give us a brief look at the surrounding area. After spending some time in the clouds we decided to head back down.
