Quick overnight into Pine and Campaign Creek area. We started from Campaign Creek trailhead towards Reavis Gap. At the Reavis Gap AZT junction we dropped packs and headed over to Walnut Spring which is about 1 mile round trip. The spring water looked a bit murky but filterable if needed. Also the area around the spring did burn but fortunately not the spring itself. After that it was just a short hike down to Pine Creek for nights camp.

Everyone setup camp and then headed off on various hikes to kill the afternoon. I joined Chumley for some off trail fun in Pine Creek. We were looking for a supposed route through rough terrain and we did manage to find some cairns and what looked like old road/trail. However, it was difficult to follow and would fade in and out. We followed it best we could to the upper start of Pine Creek and where it meets the Fireline trail Then from there we followed Pine Creek drainage back down to camp. I was really interested to see if the Pine forest in the upper creek survived the fire. I was very happy to see that this great stand of Ponderosa did survive intact despite extensive fire damage close by.

Once back at camp we enjoyed a nice night around the camp fire. A few AZT thru hikers came by after dark and then some more in the morning. In the morning we had a leisurely wake and hike back out to the trailhead. Very relaxing overnight with relatively low miles than the usual backpack weekend.
