Started from the Reavis North TH with Dallin and Alex just before sunset. We hiked in to Reavis Ranch entirely by moonlight, no headlamps, which was a treat. Set up camp and enjoyed a chilly night at the Ranch. Jumped on the AZT in the morning. Reavis Gap is a nice trail. Love seeing pines in the Supes. Pine Creek was flowing well. We stopped here for a snack. Shortly after jumping on Two Bar Ridge, we ran into @ALMAL heading down for a solo night under the stars. Two Bar Ridge Trail offers great views and a couple of nice climbs. It warmed up during this sun exposed stretch. It was nice to be heading down into some shade upon reaching Cottonwood Trail. Started off kind of blah. An extensive network of cairns guides you through a dry creek bed and cattle country. Eventually things got green and shaded. I always enjoy Saguaros next to cottonwoods. Much more scenic than I anticipated. Wildflowers really came to life along here, as well. The road walk was even nice. Entire hillsides lit up with poppies. We cruised on down to Vineyard TH where my weekend ended and the fellas will continue on from. Great trip.
Wildflowers ObservationSubstantial A little of everything. Poppies steal the show.
