Great trip with friends. I had forgotten that there was any color on the hike up High Creek so we had several surprises.

Along the way, I found a great dog bowl that I can’t wait to give My Joseph!

We got to the junction and saw the gift that Chumley left us. I didn’t know if he was still hiking so we reconfigured it to be something different.

From there we headed over to Sunset peak. I hadn’t been in a while but I had my track log so up we went. I was surprised that no one had signed in the log in a couple of years. This great peak with awesome views gets very little traffic. I suspect many people also don’t get to the high point since there are two summits.

Anyway, my description of the hike down into Rattlesnake canyon from last trip describes the trail really well. I do think that it is a bit more overgrown since then.

Once we saw Rattlesnake Canyon from the Ridge we could see the jackpot for fall colors! I was excited so I didn’t stop until I got to the colors. The maples didn’t disappoint!

We spent the night near Holdout Spring. I was disappointed that the previous group didn’t practice leave no trace. In the woods beyond the camp area was spots of dirty toilet paper. Boo!

We had a leisurely time in camp in the morning and headed out close to 10 AM. It was fun to go back through the color and enjoy it again.
