1st trip
I've done many a off trail adventures with Wally with a lot less bloodshed :o :) . Wally, Dave and I thought we would hit a couple trails in the Supes we had not done. Thank goodness Wally downloaded a track. Dave wore shorts to make it fair : rambo :. We went up Rock Creek and down Spencer from Miles trailhead. Lots of trail finding on Rock Creek but not a ton of lost blood. This was a pretty cool area in my opinion and Rock Creek Falls was sweet! It was wider than I expected. If only it had that flow on a hot summer day. Going up was slow but we figured going down Spencer would be faster :sl: . The top half of Spencer was brutal. Wally earned some kind of badge for just keeping us on trail as Dave's legs earned one for pain tolerance. Turns out Spencer had some cool areas too. It had a nice waterfall. It wasn't wide like Rock Creek but was taller. After you pass the fall a FAINT trail starts to appear more often with less blood loss. Once back on West Pinto our bodies were elated :lol: . Except for the rough parts there were lots of good parts :-k :D . Cowboy Grave, old mine,old springs,old corrals,Indian Ruins,waterfalls,lots of water and water crossings, and some good conversing! :y: Good times, my friends! :yr: We stopped in Superior to eat and got an added bonus. We got to chit chat with Karl and Kathy, compare wounds and plan for some more. :D
