I've done this hike several times previously but this was the first in December. Much different experience. Came in from the West TH and set up shop at the large campsite near Horse Camp. Switched gear to a smaller pack and continued up stream for photos and fall color and ultimately reached the entrance to Deer Creek. Due to timing and shorter days I didn't venture up DC and instead headed back to camp. The changing light, shadows, and colors were a constant distraction. A nice fire kept the frost away but putting on wet/cold neoprenes and boots was an unfortunate wake up call after a night in the mid 20s. Explored Horse Camp Canyon on Tuesday and watched a small group of Bighorns feeding and rolling rocks down into the canyon, then took our time making our way back to the TH. I think we missed the prime foliage by about one week or so, but still enjoyed the trip.
