i had a saturday off, so john and i wanted to do something interesting for the weekend
he suggested white canyon, which we had both expressed interest in previously
looked at some different options and decided to follow @hikerdw's loop of wood and white canyons
easy access to starting point in my vehicle just off 177
got going around 0630
mostly flat walking to start with, through damp fields of wildflowers
some easy off trail led over to wood canyon
we took our first detour trying to find wood spring
found an actual trail though wood canyon
at some point left that trail and went over to a drainage that led to white canyon
very scenic area at this confluence
a short hike to the bat cave, where we had a snack break
climbed out of the canyon to the west, and took a needlessly random detour back over to the upper part of white canyon
some fun little narrow slots to climb up
found white water spring, which was overflowing with good clear water
cooled off our faces and arms before the climb out on the road
abundant wildflowers and good views of the surrounding wilderness throughout
nice sampler of the area
decided to see how close we could get to the white canyon trailhead, then found a good campsite nearby
almost a full moon and not too cold - i always like an opportunity to practice camping
a good view of battle axe with our sunday morning coffee before hitting white canyon
