This was most definitely the winner hike for the weekend.
Wildlife, water galore and perfect intermittent cloud cover with a cool summer breeze made Sunday the day to be outside.
I dropped in near the headwaters of Turkey Creek and in the base of what I assumed was a seldom traveled portion of the canyon but sure enough there was some very fresh trash, a open coke, tea and some crackers no more than a few weeks old, certainly uncommon for this area.
Other than that it was pure isolation and beauty the remainder of the day enjoying quite possibly some of the easiest and relaxing off trail hiking in the state.
This is basically dog heaven with endless amounts of animal bits to snack on, easy terrain and plenty of water to drink and play in.
Made a nice enjoyable loop with Open Draw and that is where I saw the most elk of the day and a very scenic place with aspens and maples for days.
