1st trip
I had not been to the Willow Springs TH in the Goldfields for a while, so I decided to take advantage of a nice day and once again hike to Pedestal Arch, the Razorback, and Black Glass Canyon.

From the TH I took a series of trails until coming to the junction with the Packsaddle Trail and the trail going to Rough and Ready Canyon. I went left on the Packsaddle Trail for a ways, and took a somewhat messy bushwhack to get to Pedestal Arch. I would have been a lot better off to take a direct route to Razorback and the Camo Tanks, and then take a relatively easy off-trail to get to Pedestal Arch. I have been that way before, and the off-trail is much easier than what I did on this hike.

Pedestal Arch is cool, and Razorback is fun to climb.

Both Black Glass Canyon and Rough and Ready Canyon were almost completely dry.

Unfortunately it looks like some a$$hats have discovered this area of the Goldfields: I saw more trash than I have ever seen and there were a few red spraypainted arrows in 3-4 places.

I saw some chuparosa blooming in a few places, so perhaps there is some hope for the 2021 wildflower season.
