A great adventure drive and hike on a Sunday in the Sierra Anchas!

Buford, Joel and I have all talked about the Falls marked on Cherry Creek long ago and seemed to have similar interests of what was down there.
I noticed @Oregon_Hiker was was in the nearby vicinity during his trip to Cherry and his photos of white slick rock was enough to sell me .
*Edit- I now notice @RedRoxx44 has already been here because she's awesome and seems to have visited every epic seldom traveled spot in the state!

The gorge we entered was beautiful and required some typical knee high wading and boulder hopping but nothing crazy.
We hit a definite swimmer in a narrow section but made an easy bypass and then made our way down to the Cherry Pie.

A very pristine and scenic canyon that boasted a great mix of plants and had a very wild feel to it.
We stayed until complete darkness and made the short but very steep hearty bushwhack out under the headlamps and glow of a crescent moon.

Long drive home with no accidents or rollovers, sure enough they recently graded the Young Highway from Highway 260 and it's currently in the best condition I've ever seen it.
Thanks again for driving Buford!
