Headed out to Peralta TH this morning before the sun came up. Watched the sun come up over the mountain and hiked this loop that I've been wanting to do. Hit it counter clock wise as I did not want to come up Whiskey Springs. The fire area starts just past Miner's Needle summit and runs all the way down to within a half mile of La Barge Spring. Whiskey Spring (which used to be a riparian paradise is completely destroyed and now looks like the landscape of the moon. There are a couple of cottonwoods that survived but everything else is gone, except for the catclaw that is growing back in groves.I lost the trail numerous times from all the wash out along it. Took a look at Upper La Barge Box at the junction and unfortunately it looks the same way. The La Barge Spring area is fortunately untouched. Ran into a couple hunters at La Barge other then that not another soul all day.
