2nd trip out to Bonita in 5 days because ..... it's Bonita in December colors!

Ready, set ..... go

Arrived at Gila Box with the sunrise.
Saw 3 deer while driving down Bonita road (rare).
Took awhile for the sun to reach into the canyon = cold.
Colors & creek looked great from the get.
Hiked Pipeline road & back.
13 creek crossings, only got my toes wet once.
Creek is full of leaf litter as are the beaver pools.
Coati scared me or did I scare it?
New alcove art found, tip from a friend.
R&R at the awesome in-canyon campground. Hammock, coffee with sweets & bushcraft.
3 sheep just beyond the fish barrier high up on the return trip.
Also ducks, rock squirrels, hawks, tiny fish & 4 2 legged uprights spotted this morning.

All done and home by Noon.
:D
