This one's been on the radar since our last Hauchuca visit, so we recruited a few good folks who wanted to make the trip, as well. Kelly, Dallin and Alex all joined. The initial descent down Comfort Springs allows for that dramatic view of Ramsey, and its sharp contrast of green spilling over white cliffs. Carr Peak had some fall color but once we were down in the canyons, it was mostly green with a light flow in the creeks. Pat Scott Trail was new for me. It's a nice one. Lush canyon walking, mining history and then open views as we approached the ridgeline. Crest Trail is always a treat with it's ridge walking, views and pine trees. The off-trail to the peak wasn't too bad. We stayed on the highest part of the ridge, which is rocky and has the most brush. After a summit lunch and some photo ops, we started back down. This time we stayed low and took the smuggler's route, which was an actual use path and stayed out of the brush. Once back on the ridge, we retraced our steps and cruised on down to the Comfort Springs junction for the home stretch and final uphill of the day. Great day to be in the Hauchuca's. Weather was perfect and enjoyable from start to finish. It was nice to get Dallin back, catch up with Alex and get in a nice hike with Kelly. Linda was good company, too. Overall, a great group and a Sunday well-spent.
