This was my second multi-day car camping trip to this area in a month. This time I was scouting out possible car camping sites for a future family outing. Somehow I ended up at the same campsite I had visited on July 14 & 15. This site on FR586 has a great view across the meadow covered ridge tops overlooking the East Fork Black River. This day hike dropped down into the EF Black River Canyon from the east side, went up the bottom of the canyon for a short distance, then went up the west side to explore a side drainage. Then followed a high ridge out to a point on the inside of a river bend before dropping back down into the canyon and following a side drainage on the east side in a loop back to camp. I find the scenery in this area, largely unmarred by the Wallow fire, is amazingly beautiful. The vast expanses of green provide a much needed fix for this emigrant from western Oregon now living in the hot desert of Phoenix.
