angela and i wanted to hit one more little hike before leaving the white mountains monday
auger canyon falls was close to ambika's cabin, and seemed like a nice destination off the beaten path
wade dropped us off at the start, and we made our way down to the creek
very pleasant walk through the canyon and forest
so much water it was almost swampy in places
missed the waterfall on the first pass, but caught it on our way back on the forest service road
easy off trail approach
good flow over the sandstone dropoff and a worthy destination to our exploration
something we wouldn't normally have found
i was last in this area in 2007, and the wallow fire damage was sobering
met up with wade back at the truck, and coerced him to make the short trek down from the road in his flip-flops
kudos to rick vincent for writing this one up; we both enjoyed it
many thanks to ambika for lending us her cabin for a great weekend in the white mountains
a shout out to angela for doing the planning, organizing and research so that we had plenty of hikes to choose from
and thanks to mary jo and wade for the great meals, dinner at bear wallow cafe and for driving
plenty of haz appreciation to go around
i think the best part of the trip was hiking near so much running water in cool temps
such a contrast to the valley of the sun
good times, good company :)
haz rocks!
