Our annual hike to Willow Spring. This trip we hiked out to the spring via O'Grady Canyon and Old West Boulder Canyon to change things up. Old West Boulder Canyon was very overgrown with head high vegetation which made for slow hiking. While taking a break at the saddle just above OWBC a deer walked by us very peacefully. I doubt it even saw us.

Willow Spring is full and overflowing. On the trip back we climbed up the bench to take a peak at the remains of the wire corral most likely used by Adolf Ruth during his short stay in the area back in 1931.
