Finally pushed down East Webber from the rim. Nothing technical, just slow going. We went even slower taking photos every fifty yards. The beauty is a step up from anything in the area. Aspens at the top. Dark canyon colors. Old healthy trees. A few stacked rock obstacles nothing really sculptured. Based on past bear encounters we probably heard a bear but couldn't pin down his location. To the spring and back would be a nice hike in itself.

Turkey Trail #217 is now an actual "trail" again in very good condition! My 2007 visit was after a fire wiped out the switchbacks.

Only 1 hour above 80 degrees based on Bruce's garmin sensor. Nice puffy clouds kept the sun on simmer. It rained notably more on the rim when we were in the canyon. I noticed this happened on previous days reviewing rain totals prior to our hike. The rim is a solid dividing line.
