First time out to this wonderful place and it was fantastic! Last minute decision to go and there were plenty of permits still available. Saw a bobcat on the drive in which was the first good sign. The trail is mostly just walking in the creek for the first mile or so = frozen feet. After a while a very distinct trail was followed as it crisscrossed the creek many times. Came across some javelina and several deer on the hike just past Horse Camp Canyon. Unbelievable amount of animal tracks. I have never seen so may in my life. Deer, javelina, racoons, coatis, and CATS! We made camp near Booger Canyon and decided to take the side trek and it was well worth it. Lots of climbing over HUGE boulders took us to a section with so many waterfalls, we lost count. Found a nice ledge to take a break on and watch the sunset. As soon as that sun sets, it drops like 20 degrees. None of the camp spots had fire rings, but we were very sure there were no fire restrictions (unlike one unnamed, unfortunate soul). I had 27 on the thermometer at 7AM. Shoes and socks were frozen solid. No issues with animals getting into our food, but we did bag it and hang it properly (unlike one unnamed, unfortunate soul). The hike out was about 30 minutes quicker that the hike in. This included a nice talk with the park ranger, Heidi, who was picking some invasive mustard plants and checking permits. If you see her, her name is Heidi, she is not asking for your ID :sl: Saw more deer and some Cardinals. For some reason I left feeling somewhat disappointed. Probably due to the season and still not seeing a bighorn in the wild. Does not take away from this totally amazing area and cant wait to go back when its not so cold!
