A return to the expansive Pine Ridge, I drove the scenic back way from Strawberry to Pine via Hardscrabble Rd and wanted one more hike in before going home.

No Turkeys or water at the Turkey Tank but plenty of water at a handful of other unamed tanks.
A local told me about a canyon on the south facing slopes below the AZ trail that was worth visiting so that’s where I was headed.

It ended up being a beautiful riparian zone complete with oak and hearty old growth pine shading the entire place which is a stark contrast to the paralleling arid high desert flats along the same level.

The area out here looks normal on map but this whole Northen Mazzy wilderness boundary is just some big wild country especially when you get off trail, I love it but just need more time!
