Headed out to the old Kennedy Ranch to check out the Rock Creek waterfall, hoping it had a nice flow after the rain we got and to finish off a small section that I hadn't done yet. 287A is getting a lot "bumpier" since the last rain. Chilly 28 degree start with snow still on the ground in patches. West Pinto had a nice flow, however, Rock Creek was bone dry. The further up the trail I went the deeper the snow. I will say one thing, boulder hopping in the snow adds a lot more complexity and makes it much more difficult to stay on the trail. Really slowed down my pace. Light flow at the waterfall 🙁 with some nice pools up on top of it. Continued on to finish the missing section and tried to find the old Y Bar corral, but turns it I was about a quarter mile away from it. Headed back down and had lunch at the waterfall and back down I went. I did not see another person and I was the only vehicle at the TH all day, which is a bit surprising. Came across a couple small doe on the way down and that was it for the day. Hopefully we will get some additional rain, when I was at the falls last year it had more water then I have ever seen. This trail is no longer a wide open highway that it was early last year when I last did it. The catclaw is making a strong comeback, especially in a couple of areas. Pants are a must.
