Denny asked what I was doing Saturday and I said "Hog Canyon". We start from the Broadway TH to add a few miles. I miscalculated the time and we got there 30 minutes before first light. Fortunately the moon was bright and we hiked without headlamps following our moon shadows for the first half hour. The morning was cool but not cold and we didn't hike in sunlight until 10 am. I never hiked this before :o and thought the canyon would start as a trail in the low desert but it was rock hopping all the way. Denny spotted an arch high up but we resisted the temptation to climb up. The creek was dry and the bouldering proved to be a good workout. We were surprised to see crystal clear water at the falls with water trickling down into the pools. We decided to climb up the falls and were in hog heaven to see more falls and an even larger pool. The conditions today were perfect. We pigged out on chili dogs afterward. Thanks for the hike Denny.
