After 1/2 day of work, driving to find a Q-T and ending up off course on the Old Apache Highway, a hike around Boyce Thompson for fall color, it was time to finish up the day with a good hike before the sun went down. I haven't been here since Spring 2009 so it was nice to re-visit.

The trail was pretty rocky in places and crowded in places as well. Several adults were carrying little ones on their way back. I kept up my pace enjoying the views in front of me. The trail gradually rises with a dip before the main course and up to the main pools. There was a large group here. I kept going to the big boulders and then took the obligatory pics of the Balancing Rock and the pools; not the best light of course.

And now it was time to head back as I still had to pick up dinner to meet at my brother's house to check out some of the Yellowstone videos I had posted from youtube on his big screen. It was fun to re-live some of those. Also discovered my Watson Falls videos would have to be deleted as the stabilizer screwed really bad with the low light and made them unbearable to watch. Anyway, enuf of that.

I finished off the hike but not before turning around to enjoy the golden sunset on the mountain. I passed quite a few people on my way down and there were still a few people coming up. It was a great way to end my Black Friday. Had to eventually turn the heat on in Tonto Jr though as I never really did warm up today.

No video as my ice made too much noise in my drinking bottles.

Oh, and once in awhile, don't forget to look back at the trail you've traveled.
