Headed up Six Shooter. The lower two miles are boring, but nice after that. Some water flowing in the canyon. No deadfall, trail is in good shape.

At the top, we headed up Ferndell. Seems like some of the brush has been cleared back, which was nice.

Quick stop at Ladder Rock, then Pinal Peak, before walking the roads over to Signal Peak. Cool, with a nice breeze along the top.

After that, we headed down Icehouse. The top mile or so of Icehouse is in immaculate shape, obviously very recently maintained. The upper two miles of this one are some of my favorite hiking in AZ. Saw one coatimundi. The lower two miles suck—rocky, brushy, ugh. Just not fun. I was glad that was the last two miles of the hike.

Springbox was full, a little murky. Better water flowing in the creek just below it.

Light flow. Water looked good, but there are cattle in the area, so treat accordingly.

Not sure I’d want to get water out of here, but it was full.
