I hadn't been through most of upper Barks Canyon before and Kelly wanted to get home early to watch basketball, so this was our choice for the day.

Kelly spotted a big horn sheep ram near the cairn factory on the Cave trail. I saw him flash by and we could hear his hooves clomping as he jumpeed from rock to rock below us. Very cool.

We climbed on top of Geronimo's Cave, nice views. Upon completing the Cave trail, we started bushwhacking down into upper Bark's only to find a cairned route, which surprised me. We had a nice time following the creek down to the Dutchman with little difficulty or brushy encounters. We both wore shorts and were not sorry.

Pleasant hike. Some new mixed in with the old. Thanks Kelly! :)
