I decided to make another trip to Trap Canyon -- this time I went in from the west side. I followed the route from the "Trap Canyon - West Entrance Loop", although I went farther in the canyon than on this loop hike. Even so, I only got about half-way through the canyon. I would have liked to go further, but I got a late start and didn't want to spend Christmas Eve night hunkered down in Trap Canyon.

This was my first time to be on the Bluff Springs Trail since the fires last summer. There was no fire damage for about 1.25 miles, but after that there was quite a bit of damage in places. It got torched pretty good close to the Dutchman Trail. I was happy to see that the large trees in the riparian area near La Barge Spring survived the fire. In fact, they had some nice fall color!

I saw 7 people on the Bluff Spring Trail and did not see another person until I got almost back to the TH, where I saw another hiker. I am not counting the 2 dead bodies in Trap Canyon -- just kidding; but I would not have been to surprised to find a body in there, as it is a bit creepy in Trap Canyon.

I plan to go back again and see if I can make my way all the way through the canyon, and I'll have to decide whether to come in from the east side or the west side.
