angela and i wanted to get in a good hike with jack before he heads back to minnesooooota
pretty sure angela gets credit for having this one on her wish list
i like canyons and loops, and hadn't hiked anything from woodbury so we thought it would be a good choice
lucked out with cool temps
met along 60, then angela drove tonto jr. out to woodbury
did well on the road, and now i know my truck could make it (especially with new tires :lol: )
so much to see out this way, too
got going around 8:45, heading up jf trail, then heading down randolph canyon
thought we would do the boulder hopping while fresh
right off, jack and i saw two good-sized javelina, and a little later on, a coyote
too quick for pics
there is a wide range of opinions on randolph canyon in the triplogs
we found very little overgrowth, easy route finding, solid footing on the boulders and good scenery throughout
were able to crawl under the fence, and any clogs had a work-around
much more water than any of us expected
one pool had several cute little frogs
near the confluence with fraser canyon, the red bedrock and canyon walls are beautiful
had lunch in a shady spot
i had not hiked this section of coffee flat, and like the part between reed's water and dripping springs, you have a trail at times, and stay in the creek bed the rest
again, little overgrowth, and work-arounds when needed
the trail was easy enough to follow even without some work-of-art cairns, and there was good scenery in this canyon, too
potential for further exploration along the entire loop
came to jf ranch, and took the road back to the trailhead instead of the trail, kind of by accident
enjoyed the day, the weather, and especially the company
jack, i don't know where the winter went
angela, always good getting out with you
looking forward to visiting this area again
