1st trip
I really enjoy this hike, and I figured that this was a good weekend to head up to the White Mountains.

The weather was super, and while there were some yellow aspen leaves, we were probably a week or so too early to see a full explosion of aspens in their autumn glory.

We went up the East Baldy Trail; came down the West Baldy Trail; and then took the Crossover Trail back to the East Baldy Trail. I like both Baldy Trails, but the Crossover Trail isn't my favorite. This time it was easy to cross the river shortly after getting on the Crossover Trail. We did take a short diversion near the East Baldy-West Baldy junction. On the East Baldy Trail I went past the airplane wreckage, and had to backtrack about 300'-400' to see some of the wreckage.
