1st trip
After hiking in the heat of the Supes on Saturday I joined John for some hiking in the cool Pines on Sunday. Drove up to FR300 then to FR 139 and the Barbershop TH. We went down Barbershop Canyon the normal route enjoying the scenery and pools. Several pools were probably deep enough for a swim and certainly good enough to filter. Everything was bit wet from recent rains and the clouds were already building quickly in the late morning. Eventually we reached the Barbershop and U Bar Trail junction. Since we were already getting some light rain with thunder we decided to change the original plan of going up Dane Canyon. Instead we decided to off off trail over to Merritt Canyon and head up that drainage instead.

It was a good alternative and new area for both of us. Wide scenic meadows and a couple of springs to check out. Eventually we made it back to FR 139 and the vehicle. Great to spend a relatively relaxing hike in the cool pines!
