Day 3 in Aravaipa brought us to the closest canyon, Hell Hole. Saturday we got to the confluence in 1:05. Sunday it was only 45 minutes. With time restrictions in mind this allowed us to explore a good distance up canyon. I had done this hike last year, but 9L hadn't seen it before so I was quite happy to visit again. Chris and Sam started earlier and we passed them along the way.
There was more water flow this year, almost the entire way. Though I would have liked to see it two days earlier when there was a solid flow from the rain. Just one more reason to come back again!
Autumn Foliage ObservationModerate Sycamores rusty, cottonwoods a bit past peak with plenty of leaf litter
