We decided to take an alternate route to meet JJs Haunted Canyon hike. Paradise was a nice trail with a solid climb to start.

We set up camp (thanks for coming early and securing the spot Larry!) and waited for the others to arrive before heading over to check out the cabin and explore upstream a bit.

I hiked back through the poison ivy jungle with the group before returning back to camp. Haunted Canyon is a really scenic hike, and the sycamore were a colorful autumn rust, and the poison ivy was actually quite colorful as well. :scared:

Had a nice night around the fire before going our separate ways in the morning. Lee and Larry led us back to the car via Bull Basin. It got a bit warm in the sun, and the route ended up being a bit longer than the map advertised, but there are some really scenic parts of the trail, especially as you come down the hill from Bull Basin.

Thanks to JJ for putting this together. Great to meet skillpore, and to see the rest of you again. :)

The Poison Ivy on Haunted Canyon 203 was 4 colors. Green, Red, Yellow, and Orange. Brilliant stuff!
The sycamores were about peak rust.

Just some pools of standing water. Filterable, but no visible flow.

dry Sherry Spring Dry Dry
Found an old spring box buried under some manzanita adjacent to an old corral. This hasn't seen groundwater in a long time.

Light flow from the pipe. The spring box was full and clear.

dry Upper Haunted Canyon Spring Dry Dry
Didn't find source of spring. A couple of small puddles in the rocks possibly from the last rain rather than the spring.

dry Yellow Jacket Spring Dry Dry
Couldn't locate source of spring. Wash had some mud and small puddles from last rain event. Puddles were very brown and would have been difficult to filter.
