A little over one hour from house to TH ... 46 degrees when I got there.
I had a big stupid grin on my face for the whole hike ... partly because starting at over 9000 ft gave me a pleasantly buzzed, light-headed feeling - but mostly because it's such a fun hike.
Waterfalls galore!
Only saw one group of three guys all day - at the start of the bypass trail, and was glad they told me not to take the "official" trail ... by doing so, you would miss some of the best things - including the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th biggest falls.
The main attraction is amazing - anyone know how tall it is? The trail only brings you to an overlook ... you cant get close to the fall or to the bottom without risking your life - which I probably will next time. :)
It was in this area that I'm pretty sure I smelled a bear. A while later I came around a curve in the trail and almost tripped over a turkey. Hehe. Saw another turkey later, as well as many deer, squirrels, lizards, birds ... lots of beautiful red-faced warblers!
54 degrees back at the trailhead ... an hour later back in Safford it was 81 at 6pm.
Checked out Hospital Flat for future camping ... that little camping area is a winner.
