A nice long loop in the Supes exploring a couple of new {to me} areas, along with some others I’d seen before. Things started off very chilly and windy in the morning, but within an hour or so, layers were coming off. We had a nice trail on the way in, although the Cockscombs were full on dicks to the dogs. :( Be prepared with scissors if bringing dogs (especially any longer haired dogs) into this area. Arriving at Red Tanks was my favorite part of the hike, as that canyon is just so stunningly beautiful. That wasn’t part of our official route, but we did venture down a bit & see some pools of water. Dripping springs looked completely different than the last time I had visited as it was pretty much completely dry. The fall colors were still gorgeous in this area though! We took a snack/drink break here before heading back to the second portion of our loop. I’m not sure if this was just completely destroyed by the fire/draught, but this section was just miles of complete bushwhacking - so much cat claw, foxtails and super easy to lose any type of “trail/path.” We finally got through this section and had a steady climb up to get back to the trailhead. We were all pretty tired by that point and very excited to see the vehicles! During the hike, we only saw one couple at dripping springs (man was carrying a machete!), but on the way out we were pretty shocked by how crowded it was on the Woodbury road, especially towards the beginning. Tons of ATV’s, people shooting, what looked like big set ups for large parties, etc. Despite the bushwhacking and chilly temps, the company was excellent and it was overall an enjoyable day and great escape from all the stress of life. Note: do yourself a favor and wear hiking pants; leggings were a very unwise choice. :sweat:
