Heading out like Johnny Mathis on a sleigh ride we found conditions delightful. Anticipated slow travel through Arnett Creek. Turn the record over. New song... Pretty views, morning light and running creek along the Legends of Superior Trail. Autumn foliage was getting underway on the walnut, cottonwood and willows(guessing). Oughta dazzle for a week plus. Unfortunately rain is forecasted for the holiday most will be available.

Dora's Apache Tear Expedition was a bust. After review, I clearly see my error. Failure to read... lol. Nonetheless, enjoyed the little side trip.

Continued on to Telegraph Canyon. FR4 just recently reopened. Word got out, we passed a small caravan of four wheelers.

Grafted in @kingsnake's Ocotillo dance looping over Hill 3464. While I lean light on culture geek vibes the rock walls are impressive. I'm no cow but getting over wasn't happening, around was the ticket. What really stands out are the views! Superior Municipal pimple on a flea Airport, Picketpost and a tight view of Telegraph Canyon. The royal king mentioned "I did not lay eyes on it." in reference to Filaria Spring. The_Bloodhound_Eagle scoured the vicinity utilizing SAR precision grid search and netted the same results. Back in Telegraph along an ol' long gone ranch of sorts was the lull of the hike.

Continuing West, NW then North around Picketpost we encountered a half dozen enjoying the day.

No one will believe it but I proposed a moderate hike and Bruce wanted to add in Picketpost Summit. Tired or not, the lure of AEG got me. Gave it a try and got 2/3rds up, past a majority of the dicey part. Just not quick enough to safely beat sunset so we aborted checking the mail.

Better than anticipated. Picketpost vicinity typically delivers late Nov.
