Waited for the rain to clear enough to let me out and go hike today. Got a later then normal start but headed over to Queen Valley and up the always fun Elephant Butte road or mud pit today. Parked at the Buzzards Roost TH. Started up Milk Ranch Creek and headed in to Randolph Canyon. Nice easy stroll as always at the start, slightly overgrown but nothing horrible. Made my way into the burn area and everything changed. This once beautiful area has been devastated by a recent flash flood. The trail no longer exists except in a few spots here and there and the creek has changed it's course. Numerous downed trees and fallen cacti. I've done this hike numerous times and I struggled to find my way today. It is now a boulder hopping muddy mess. Got to the confluence for a quick snack and the flood damage is just as bad there. Headed back and got dumped on by a thunderstorm for a bit but nothing too horrible. It is going to take a long time for this area to heal itself, I am not sure if I will ever hike this again, which is sad is it is one of my favorite areas in the Superstitions.
