I wanted to do the Superstition Ridgeline hike today, but didn't get much traction with the family (other than my son). So, we decided to make it a pontoon adventure out to Apache Lake. Rented the pontoon for 1/2 day (5 hours) and cruised down to Alder Creek, where we did a little cliff jumping, and then attempted the hike up to Brown's Cave. Everyone eventually dropped out, other than my son and his friend (too much bushwhacking for the girls' liking). We made it to the waterfall but decided not to continue to the cave, since we didn't want to leave the rest of our crew waiting around too long back at the boat. Fun hike, but definitely wear pants! Cruised the pontoon down to the dam and back. Water was chilly, but okay for a few cliff jumps and dives off the top of the pontoon boat : rambo : On the bright side, we essentially had the lake to ourselves!!

FYI: the rope swing mentioned in the description is no longer there, but the huge sycamore is. So, it's now a "BYO rope" swing. :-)
