Our annual Black Ridge hike. We expanded on the longer loop we did last year and for the most part stayed on a faint horse trail most the time. We lost the trail on the decent down to Upper Sheep Creek and at one spot as we were hiking along the creek bench where cattle trails overwhelmed the faint horse trail. Great area in the Mazatzal's.

Like everywhere else the area is super dry with the exception of running water in Upper Sheep Creek.
