After last weeks hike down Randolph Canyon with Stiller I decided to check out the the holes in the cliffs above. The hike in from the Peralta TH provided an easier drive and only a few miles of the same trails. I started about 7 am and had the trail to myself. I saw 8 javelina cross the Dutchman trail but they were moving too fast for photos. Once on Coffee Flat trail the hiking was easy going. It was sad to see the large saguaro near Reeds Water has fallen over. It was standing 3 months ago when I hiked through there in October. About a half mile beyond Reeds Water I saw a coati in a tree. The photo is bad as it was into the sun and through the branches. I made my way up Randolph Canyon and found a section on Red Tanks trail that we missed last week. The trail climbs above the creek bed but isn't any easier than hiking the creek. I climbed up to the one hole and it was just water coming out of the cliff. I decided to go against common sense and stayed high to get to the second hole. The gamble worked and I got to see some new terrain as I hiked there. The second hole wasn't anything either. It would make a nice shelter but nit very deep and not a prospect hole.
On the hike out I saw 10 backpackers by Reeds Water and another 8 along Coffee Flat trail. I saw several more backpackers hiking in the Dutchman trail as well. Apparently conditions are great for a night in the Superstitions.
