1st trip
The plan was to hike the Black Canyon Trail south from the Black Canyon City trailhead to the top of the hill where the milk quartz bicycle and peace sign are. After all the rain we've been having, the Agua Fria was really flowing. When we reached the river it was at least 100' wide. I took my shoes off and walked out a ways but the water was up to my knees before I even hit the channel. I think the water would have been well over my waist if I continued. So we bagged that and went north to the next Agua Fria crossing and checked it out too. Then we headed back to the trailhead and headed home. I think the hike ended a couple miles shy of what we planned, but we enjoyed the day out. The trail was good and there was little mud. It was overcast and cool, great weather for walking. Interestingly, or not, the last time I was out here was exactly a year ago on my thru-hike of the BCT.
