We went up to the Mingus area to take advantage of the cooler weather.

Starting on Yaeger Canyon Trail #28 , heading CW, we got the big climb for the day out of the way. Cool crisp air and good views on the way up.

Up top, a short walk on FR413 until we went off trail to check out Chums. Chums was a bit scummy, but filterable if needed.

We continued our off trail to meet up with Gaddes #110. We headed down to more great views.

Next, it was into a new area for us. Burnt Canyon was really one of the gems on this hike. Easy wide open walking to start, turned into slickrock, with very minor canyoneering. Water could be had in many places, but never got in the way of our hike.

We climbed out of Burnt Canyon and into Ash Canyon #539. We've hiked through here before and a worthy trail if you are in the area. We use it as a way to access Kendall Mountain There is a huge ole' Juniper that we have used before as a break spot. The shade felt good.

Heading down Little Yaeger #533, I couldn't remember ever being on it before. It had been 8 years since we did the whole thing, but yep we'd been there. This is a well groomed, well used trail with once again, good views. We met a gentleman from Prescott that talked to us all the way down. Walking at our normal brisk pace, this 75 year old gentleman went step for step with us all the way down. I hope I can still do that at that age.
