Had the day off yesterday so I headed out to one of my favorite spots in the Superstitions. Drove down Milk Ranch Road and parked under Buzzards Roost. From the last house on that road to the parking area is completely torched. Nothing survived and the road is a lot worse because of it. Hiked over to the Coffee Flat trail and headed down Randolph Canyon. The Sawtooth fire destroyed everything on the right side of the trail all the way to the wilderness boundary, the left side was untouched. The grass in this area is insane! It's more of a grassland now then anything. Trail is pretty defined now except in one small spot just past the gate. Got to the Randolph/Fraser confluence and took a break. Such an awesome area that I love hiking to even without much water. Continued on to the junction with Red Tanks, hiked about a quarter mile up and my instinct told me it was for another day. Turned around and headed to the start of Red Tanks Canyon, had lunch there and hiked in a bit. Beautiful canyon with surprisingly a good amount of water. After about a half hour I started back and made a quick stop at Reed's Water. Weather was decent, light rain early on, which made it pretty humid, then the sun came out and warmed things up. Did not see another soul the entire day, which is just the way I like it. 🙂
