After throwing in the towel on my BCT Thru yesterday at Black Canyon Creek, I decided to check out the Agua Fria River North crossing from the Black Canyon City trailhead and pickup the two water caches I had. A friend hid a geocache near the river too, so I stopped to find it.

My legs felt really tired yesterday after I stopped hiking and this morning too, but they felt really good while I walked. That sort of bummed me out since it seems, physically I was good for the full BCT.

There were a few people hiking and mountain biking along the trail. As far as I could tell, all went to the south river crossing.

The trail was in great shape the whole hike. I think the river crossing would have been quite doable today. I would have liked to see what Black Canyon Creek was like; how the flow receded from yesterday. :(

On the way back, I passed a family of four that were stopped looking at a snake, they thought was a rattler. It was a Bull Snake. For some reason, I told them it was a Gopher Snake as Bull Snake didn't come to mind, though I know that. I must be getting old. ](*,)
