This is another Fall Favorite. Based on the mixed colors, this one should be good for a couple of weeks.
Perfect weather all around on this one.

We tried to be quiet and not wake the Camp host at our 6:30 start. I think we were successful.

The lower reaches of all of these trails in the area, for me, are just a means to get to the beauty once you hit the trees. The Manzanita does get rather large in most areas up heree.

This was the first time up the entire Telephone Trail #192 to Six Shooter. I've always done the Telephone Ridgeline, which is just a steep climb with out the beauty. It hits 651 right at Icehouse Canyon I like this MUCH better.

At the upper end of the Telephone trail, where it intersects Six Shooter, Joe spotted a large 8+ point Whitetail, that stared at us for a while.

The closer to the Ferndell Spring area we got, the better the color got. The Ferndell area never disappoints.

We all followed Joe to the first of 2 peaks, Pinal Peak, where we took a break. It actually got a bit cool up there. A brief trip to Ladder Rock and then we hit the Ferndell Trail.

Next we followed Joe over to Signal Peak for some lunch.

Icehouse Canyon Trail, is a tunnel of color. It's on this trail that we saw our only other hiker of the day.

It was HAZ celebrity, TODDAK on day 3 of his Fall Color tour. Great to meet you!

This one should be good for the next couple of weeks. Get out there if ya like some color
