After my 1st hike out to Saguaro, hiking solo last spring, I knew I wanted to return with Roger to plot out making a true loop out of Butcher Jones #463. I had reviewed Kingsnake's Lasso Loop up the wash and back to Burro Cove's overlook and MEWhiteman's extension of the trail past the overlook and all looked doable. Off we went, as we went up to the wash and made our left on ( Kingsnake's tracks ) we were glad we took our clippers along, was really overgrown, but as we exited the overgrowth after approximately 100 feet, it opened up to a nice wide wash with a easy hike up to the ridgeline, we paused to review our route and wondered about the Slot Canyon and if it was doable :scared: , we agreed we'd try it as it didn't look to bad, and we're glad we did as it gave us a little thrill of the unknown :y: . We worked our way around and over several Rolls that were to steep to cross and worked our way over to a Cove overlook and had lunch. Left our sweet spot and worked our way East and around the hill following a Critter Trail ( just as the Excursion Boat went by, bet they thought they spotted a couple of big Rams ;) ) and connected back up to MEWhiteman's Extension tracks and hooked back up to the official route back to the TH. We'll go again soon and do some trail maintenance on the Extension to give the trail some identity and make it easier to traverse.
