Finally hit up this off the highway TH and I must say I was surprisingly impressed! :app:

On my way down the trickling Badger Springs Wash I came to a halt on the trail just before stepping on a small Rattlesnake (first of the year) I gave him/her plenty of space but it was a mean little one and immediately coiled up and began to rattle in striking position, I took a horrible cell phone photo and moved on.

The Badger Springs/ Agua Fria River is a real gem right about now, vivid greens and an abundance of water make this place a bit surreal considering its location and ease of access.
What pleased me most is that this area had a lot less human impact than I had imagined, I only picked up a handful of trash and it truly seems like not many people ever venture down river.

My original destination was Perry Tank Canyon but I was feeling lazy and the constant boulder scrambling and wading drained me even more, I instead took a nap on one of the many scenic lush green beaches and just relaxed.

Made my way back upstream and found a couple areas to take photos until the sunset over this idyllic little oasis.
