1st trip
Finally got some time to take the Lunatic out for a real hike. LOTS of people out there today but I don't blame them, the weather was fantastic! After all the rains lately, everything was super green and lush. First water was bone dry and only a few pools here or there along Second Water, there was nothing flowing in Boulder Canyon. That junction of Boulder Canyon and Second Water is quite the intersection with 10 people passing through as Luna got a water break. Checked out the paint mine. I had surprisingly never been here as I have always stayed in either LaBarge or Boulder anytime I have been out this way. Checked out some campsites and went over to Hackberry area. While going across Garden Valley to the west now, I came across a path that led up and over the mini peaks that surround the valley. Not much of a trail after that but I did pick up a faint path about halfway down which I lost again just roughed the next 1/4 mile down. Hackberry had the usual group of about 8 kids and several dogs hanging out and the pipe was dripping nice. Found a path along First Water all the way down and it turned out to be a dandy. I think I may route this way into my next hikes instead of the usual Second Water beginning. Luna did great out there today and she kept the pace the whole time.
