This was my first hike since heading down to Rogers Canyon Cliff Dwelling and Angel Basin with mnlumberjack back on March 24th. :o So, I didn't know what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised in not having any problems today. :D I definitely needed this, as I am planning on doing some hikes over around Ruidoso, New Mexico with friends in the near future. :sweat:

Up the Old Baldy to Josephine then down the Super Trail, which was getting quite warm at the end! No wonder, it was a scorcher today with a high of 106 at my house (forget that dry heat stuff). This kind of heat always gets a little early moisture to creep in this time of year (test run for the upcoming monsoon) and sure enough there were isolated showers and boomers to the east by late afternoon. :)

Everything down Madera way was looking good. Trails were in great shape and I heard a Trogon during much of the hike (in the upper part of the canyon).

The pipeline that used to go down canyon from here has been abandoned, and at the water trough the pipes coming down from the springbox above the trail have been disconnected. So, though I can't be certain, this once wonderful water source may be a thing of the past.
