Went on a father-daughter hike at Spur Cross. She hadn't been there before so I gave the full tour with what I know about Spur Cross Ranch history, the archeology of Cave Creek Canyon, plane crash site history, etc.

Spur Cross was busy for a week day but only met one couple on the trail #252 segment of this hike. Cave Creek was dry at the crossing near the trail head but had a small flow further up the canyon at the corrals.

A beautiful day and I always enjoy time with my daughter.
