We had been pretty noncommittal for what our hike would be this weekend. I don't have a huge desire for offtrail route hunting but if I get to do Barnhardt and then enjoy myself in the Mazatzals, then I am in!

Barnhardt never disappoints, and seeps were runny and the falls were flowing. I like this trick of us carrying day packs and Lee carrying the heavy camping gear, then I don't feel so slow. :D Blanco kept an eye on me. I'd see him up ahead peaking around a corner at me, then he would take off to catch up to the guys.

We went down to Chilson Camp for a break and then off to our own adventures. I went back up to the Divide Trail and just lollygagged along. I hiked with my head up and enjoyed the views! At two miles from the Brody/Chilson turn off, you cross a creek. The water was flowing crystal clear. I continued on, and then thought I could hear a waterfall. I went off the trail and followed the sound heading back the way I had come. Suddenly, I realized I might be looking at Deadman's Falls. If I had just headed down that creek about a tenth of a mile, I would have found it. Perfect spot for another break.

I headed back to Chilson and used the picnic table there to eat some snacks and read my book and enjoy the afternoon. Karl and Lee returned and we exchanged tales and then Karl and I headed out. One of these times we might actually stay to enjoy the campfire!
