I had planned to go up to Sedona today for my birthday hike, but the weather was so unseasonably cool that I couldn't resist a hike in the Superstitions. I had been wanting to visit La Barge Box for a while, and I made it out there today. I followed Boulder Trail all the way to the point where a social trail cuts east, back into La Barge Canyon and drops you right into the Box. After spending some time there recovering and enjoying the sound of running water, I headed downstream following La Barge Canyon. This was tough and at some points I wished I had just taken the trail back. If it wasn't for all the pools of water, I could have probably made pretty good time walking right down the canyon floor. This was a great hike, and definitely an awesome birthday present to myself.
