I parked at the recommended TH at 139A and Fred Haught. Got down into the canyon after a short walk on Fred Haught and FR95. The canyon was filled with lush green and beautiful! It was in the upper 80's and the gnats were quite annoying.

The swamp cooler vest worked really well for Wiski. Someone had asked how often you'd have to re-soak it in water. I noticed it became fairly dry only after half an hour perhaps. But water was easily available down in the canyon :) I do think even if you did not have water readily available to soak it in, the dry vest still would create a very good barrier and would be so much better than having the sun directly beat down on a dog's back.

Saw a pair of eagles in the canyon, which was pretty cool! I didn't go through the entire section and started turning back just shy of 4 miles in because I didn't want to get completely wet getting through one section. Saw one solo backpacking girl at the TH when I started and a family with kids heading out to Aspen Spring to backpack when I got back to the TH. No one else was in the canyon. It was definitely a pretty little spot if you are doing the cabin loop.
