Crosscut Trailhead was already loaded with vehicles when I arrived, on the way up from the saddle came across a scattered group of 12 to 15 coming back down, 3 hikers at the waterfall then surprisingly had the place to myself until ready to leave. Did not miss any flowing water yesterday as it was still frozen in place. Nice views of 4 peaks and the Mazatzals with the snow highlighting the slopes. Still some patchy snow on Superstition Mountain giving a different ambience to the hike. The sun disappeared during this hike making it pretty chilly, brisk wind at the high point led me to take a break below the cliff face,after verifying no one above me. Expected to see a frozen pool below the usual main waterfall but not there , the “ice flow “ to the left was more substantial with icy stalagtites and stalagmites formed at the base of the wall. Amazed how a familiar hike can seem different from the snowfall and it invited frequent stops for picture taking.
