It was a nice winter day, so I decided to make another trip to Trap Canyon.

We went in the west side, and we went a bit farther than I had gone before -- we were probably 2,000 feet or so from the east end of the canyon. I could tell that a couple of my compadres were not really interested in going farther, so we reversed course and went back to the Red Tanks Trail on the west side of the canyon.

It was a great day to do the hike -- the temperature was around 60 and it was sunny and breezy. Early on we saw a few backpackers, and we saw a few more backbackers within a mile of the TH. I think that we only encountered one day hiker the whole day, and that was around Miners Needle.

As we neared the TH, at the Bluff Springs-Dutchman trail junction, we saw a group of about 10-15 bighorn sheep on the cliffs to the west. The sheep hung around for a long time, and that was cool to see.

There were a few pools of water in Trap Canyon. Most were stagnant water, but you might have been able to filter water in a couple of the pools.
