1st trip
Had to take advantage of the freakishly cool May weather and get back out to the Supes for something different.

Karma was set for a successful hike, seeing a Javilina on 56th st at City North, on the way to the hike.

This hike was inspired by the incomparable Hansenaz's (AKA Steve, The Stevinator, Steverino) 2009 loop.

Started from the Broadway TH for the first time. Not a fan of the ankle buster rocky trail leading up to another one low on the list, Jacob's Trail #58. But it's a way to get to the Hog. We kept commenting on how perfect the conditions were to see snakes in the tall grassy wash area and Joe made sure to follow me, saying that "They're known to hit the person at the back of the pack, so I'll follow to watch out for you". What a good friend he is.......

We stopped at the dry fall to check the area out and then started our climb up the Hog Canyon Ridge. For the most part pretty straight forward, but we had Steve's track to keep us on the straight and narrow. You had to continuously look back to soak in the views. The scattered clouds made the views pop. I'd say the hardest part was the initial climb to get on the ridge and there was one other section where Joe just made it by going straight up, but my legs were too short and I had to go around.

Finally on the Supes Ridgeline and smooth sailing. One reason for making this loop was to pick up a short section of the Ridgeline I hadn't been on yet. We saw a single hiker on the Ridgeline and then started seeing a few more as we got closer to the Flatiron.

Down the trail to the Siphon Draw and then hopped on the Palmer Mine Trail over to the Treasure Loop #56 and by Praying Hands.

My least favorite part of the day was the 4+ mile slog back on Jacob's Trail #58. That trail just never ended...
