Wanted to check out the flow in Colcord Canyon and see how easy it was to follow it down to the confluence with Naegelin / Upper Haigler.

Colcord is very similar to its paralleling cousin canyons like Gordon Creek and a few unnamed tributaries in the vicinity.

I encountered a pack of three healthy coyotes and as usual ran they away but were still a little curious of my activity and lingered around.
Just after that the canyon narrows a bit and there is a very nice 20ft waterfall that had no flow at this visit but boasted a full blown pool at its base.

A few miles after FR 411a crosses the canyon which is not labeled on the topo but is marked with FR signs at the very top.
Soon after my dog got in a little scuffle with a hunters Bloodhound double her size, which is just Payton's way of saying hi and was soon over after I broke it up and the hunter and I chatted for a bit.

The hunter actually lost a white hound and was still looking for him into the early evening and I never linked back up but still heard his calls echoing through the canyon so I hope he found his pup!

Found a jeep rode that drops down near Lost Salt Canyon that could open up many options but the evening was quickly coming to a end and my curiosity was filled enough for the day.
