I expected scorched earth on the drive in with a few exceptions but what I saw was scorched earth with almost no exception. I counted about 3 surviving Emory Oak, a few Sycamores and 2 or 3 Pinion Pine Trees. There was water at the creek that flows through Brushy Basin, water at Mud Spring and a trickle of water at Picadilla Creek, probably should add Picadilla to water source map as it is fairly reliable. Found puddle of water at Bear Spring although it is not easily accessible due to heavy vegetation including Poison Ivy. Also found young AZ Walnut Tree near spring. Four Peaks area burned near TH but the area that burned in Lone Pine Fire 1996 (E. of TH) is almost untouched, thankfully. Temps on the trail were 20-25 degrees cooler than the valley. Saw squirrel and signs of bear and deer.
