First trip out to Aravaipa, and it did not disappoint. Elevation is an approximation, my phone had it at 2000' and I know that is way off. Went with my friend Michael for a quick weekend overnighter after securing permits. Temps were high 60's and low 40's, just about perfect for this adventure. We started out from the west end about 11:30 and hiked in about an hour or so before taking a lunch break. We wanted to push on to Horse Camp Canyon to make our camp and it was a good choice, there are a number of nice spots around there. We got to our spot about 4, set up camp and then went to explore up the side canyon a bit. Well worth the extra effort, we found some really nice waterfalls and rock pools. Had a small fire and got to sleep pretty early. Sunday morning we had a leisurely breakfast and broke camp, hitting the trail about 9:30. We managed to find more stretches of trail-ish (about as good as it gets here) on the way back instead of hiking through the creek, we hiked out in half the time it took to hike in. I opted for hiking sandals and some neoprene socks that I had gotten a few years ago for cold kayak trips, these worked well to keep my feet warm but I had to stop to shed rocks pretty frequently. We met a guy hiking that just had boots and some compression socks he had cut to use as rock gaiters, I think that would be the perfect solution. Not much wildlife while we were out there, but we did see a group of 3 coatamudi, that was pretty cool for sure. All in all a great trip, I hope to make it back again soon!
