Quick overnighter for some peace & quiet. Got started late, just as the storms started. Rainfall wasn't too heavy in Gen. Springs Cyn but lightning got a little too close for comfort. Took the side trip over to Fred Haught Cabin to let the worst of it pass, before hitting the upcoming ridges (Turkey Pen, Fred Haught & Telephone). 30mins later, the skies were quiet despite continued rain. The portion of Fred Haught Trail that dips in and out of Bear Canyon was pretty much entirely burned. Low intensity, though, and grasses and wildflowers were already filling in the landscape. The destination for the evening was Rock Crossing #18C at C.C. Cragin and a secluded camp spot reported by Chumley in a recent triplog. Walked to the end of FR139A and made it there just in time to watch a bald eagle fly over and shed a small feather that landed next to me. Definitely a scenic little spot to call home for a night. Made a nice fire and cooked dinner in the rain. It dispersed just as I began to eat and unwind for the night. The wet, chilly night was nice respite from the summer heat. Just as I finished packing up in the morning, a boom of thunder sent me on my way. Skies began to clear and the stroll back to the TH was pleasant. Everything was green and water was plentiful. Crossed paths with Lee and Jackie taking the dogs out to splash in some of that water. Overall, a successful little getaway into the pines.
