With a nice day forecast I wanted to check out a few side canyons east of Coffee Flat Mountain. I started at 7:30 and got ahead of a large group. The trail was clear into Reeds Water and I stopped to look at the large saguaro. After a few minutes I heard voices coming so I continued on toward Dripping Springs. As I past through one area with tree I half excepted Topohiker would walk out of the trees. That's where I first ran into him on the trail in 2008. I looked up at a few interesting spots along the trail and continued on to the Red Tanks trail. Once on the Red Tanks trail I took side canyons and explored much of the way until I was past upper La Barge spring. The brush was thick at that point and I had to plow through to get back to the trail. Near the intersection of Hoolie Bacon & Red Tanks I stopped to eat. It was nearing 3pm so I realized I would need to start moving to make it back before dark. The sun was getting low as I hiked down the Dutchman trail but I made it to the hill above Peralte TH right at sun set. No stone houses were discovered on this trip.
