I took Fan to see the san Pedro river. We parked at the Freeman TH and as we pulled there was a fellow hiker stocking up the water cache. He said that the cache was full to the top.
We headed down the AZT to the Bell hive well and took a short break. Then we took the GET down to the river. We tried to find the Putnam spring. Unless it in the middle of the wash, we didn't find it.

Fan was highly disappointed with the San Pedro river. She considered it more of a creek. I wanted to hike into the Aravaipa creek. The plan was to continue down the Putnam wash, go under SR77 and go up Aravaipa. Two fence lines and bridge construction put a stop my plans ](*,) . I tried to detour around but that area is riddled with private property. I couldn’t find a legal way around without going about ½ mile to north. Then I just explored up the river and bushwhacked over to the Camino Rio road. The road follows the river and yes there private property along the road. I looks like someone owns a portion of the river.

I met back up Fan and we took Putman’s wash / rancher road back to Freeman road. We came across a herd of cattle near the Whitehead well. The herd was blocking the way. This was the first time that the cows didn’t run from us. The bulls gave us the stink eye and started scratch sand in the wash. I gave them the vegan story, but that wasn't working this time [-X . We had to walk around the herd. Then is started to rain on us :o ! I rained for about 10 minutes.

The temps were on the cool side in the morning and night. It got very chilly after the rain. There was on & off rain for drive back until we hit the 60.
