This was a two-night backpack, staying at Horse Camp both nights. Great weather, nice water temperature for hanging out in the creek, air temperature pretty warm but not unbearable. I went with four other ladies, all old friends, and we had a lot of fun goofing off, splashing in the water, playing ukuleles and singing, and sharing backpacking stories. Of course, the canyon is as gorgeous as ever. On the second day we day-hiked up to Hell Hole Canyon, and up it as far as the spring.

On the third day one person saw a bear just up the trail from our camp, very early in the morning. We all saw some coatimundis. And the raccoons... Someone had mistakenly pulled one of the food bag ropes up too high, so that it was quite available to raccoons on the branch. I got a couple of photos of one of them before I chased it away.

We had fun with our phone bird apps, using the bird call function to attract Bell's Vireos, summer tanagers, and canyon wrens. Also saw a heron, plenty of vultures, a cardinal, and maybe a thrasher or two.
