Day 2 of my time spent with Preston was had in the Big Lue Mountains.
We chose Coal Creek for the days adventure, only my 2nd hike ever in this scenic mountain range.
Arrived, geared up & headed up the canyon. Very nice easy-going stroll up the jeep trail with many cold clear creek water crossings. Ponderosa pines, oaks a a few aspens lined the trail. A mile in we crossed through the boundary gate into New Mexico making this a 2 state hike. Reached our turn-around point, had a quick lunch under the pines & headed back. On the way back Preston opted for a quick cold creek soak (yikes) while I explored some old campsites followed by a couple of creek videos before returning back to the start.

Coal Creek is my kind of place, tall pines with a clear creek running through ..... simple beauty!

Many stops were made along the drive up from Safford and back. Great scenery throughout the trip including the always awesome monsoon storms brewing above and around.
Thank You Preston for showing me another in the Big Lue's (sorry for the tantrum after the ant bite ... it hurt!)
