Met up with Wally and Denny at the lower Haunted Canyon trailhead at dawn and we were soon on the trail in the early morning’s chill. This would be the second time I gladly wore long pants this winter. Wally was our tour guide and he sure delivered. Stop one was the Periz Cabin, which is almost perfectly camouflaged into the surrounding vegetation. Very cool old cabin with a low doorway and ceiling. Great location for a homestead.

Two hours of beautiful, woodsy canyon scenery later, we arrived at Toney’s Cabin. The cabin is still looking good. We continued on and then went off trail deep into the forest, where Wally showed us a mystery spot with an old prospect pit and unusual rock trough nearby. Found a few pieces of what could have been ore, but we had no idea what kind it was.

The three of us had some lunch under the cypress canopy and then it was off to stop 3: the cave. Wally led the way as we scrambled up the ledges and into the cave opening in the side of a cliff. The cave was bigger than expected, with tall ceilings and some flow stone formations. Very cool place!

Our hike out saw quite a few people coming in, mostly backpackers, and a few horseback riders. Pleasantly warm afternoon for the hike out, with countless bees visiting the budding alder tree stands along Pinto Creek.

Back at the trailhead, we said our goodbyes and then hit the road. It was great to spend time with Denny and Wally. Excellent company and conversation as always! Thank you Wally for showing Denny and I around! :D
