Needed some place cooler, a little out of town, and remote to get away from all the noise and disconnect. Had been out here before and this filled the bill. Not a long hike but relaxing. Started around 9:30am and the trail pretty much follows Badger Springs Wash to the Agua Fria River. Some puddles and trickling water in the wash, and the river was flowing with a small waterfall just upstream from the wash. Very nice when you get back to the river when it's flowing. Muddy in spots but not too bad. Saw a lot of zebra-tailed lizards, especially near the trailhead. Too fast to get any decent photos.

No one else on the trail, not surprisingly. There was a semi in the parking area when I pulled up, but he was long gone by the time I finished. On the way back I checked out the High Desert Trail in Rock Springs. A short, 1.8 mile nature trail type in a park area. Just north of Rock Springs on Jacie Ln.
