Joined Kyle and Lee for nice hike on the Mogollon Rim. Dane Canyon and Barbershop Canyons were the objective. Kyle provided the invite and Lee provided the ride with Blanco as our wing dog. We headed down Dane Canyon to start the loop but part way down we left the canyon to check out Dane Cabin on the ridge above. Also a spring there that was running just enough to get decent water from. From there we picked up the U-Bar Trail and over to Barbershop Canyon.
Once in Barbershop we continued up canyon spooking several elk one of which had the largest rack I've ever seen. Unfortunately it ran away before we could deploy our cameras. We also found a very active area for elk carcasses and other unidentified animals..interesting to find such a large collection of bones in one area.
Eventually we made it up to Barbershop Trail and back to the vehicle for a post hike brew We just barely beat the rain with thunder rumbling as we headed out. Great to hike with Lee first time and Kyle again!
