I noticed a section of the Perry Mesa edge I haven't walked before and figured I could make a loop passing a few good spots I'd been too before.

Badger Springs Trailhead is a good place to start: very accessible and instant riparian scenery. I crossed the dry river and walked up to the mesa top on the far side, turned north and walked the mesa edge. Passed a couple favorite petroglyphs along the way up and ran across a couple new sites (for me) on the way to Baby Canyon. I had been a little worried about tall grass on the mesa but it wasn't as bad as it could have been (knee high). Still I probably missed plenty while trying to avoid tripping over the hidden rocks.

Steep bushwack down to the mouth of Baby Canyon where I visited another couple familiar petroglyphs then a return down the sandy, rocky, dry riverbed. I noticed only one very small pool in this stretch - there looked to be a bit more surface water at Badger Springs in the side canyon.

Not a bad day...by the end I was feeling fairly confidant with my new camera phone!
