Warren invited me to hike with him to Boulder Bob's Cabin. Unfortunately Hwy 87 was closed due to an accident, so we headed to the Supes instead. We were the first ones at the Peralta trailhead at first light. Mosquitos and moths were out in abundance.
We headed up Bluff Springs trail for a clockwise loop. It didn't take long for us to enter the burn zone. Recent rains have caused significant erosion in places. We momentarily lost the trail several times. There is also a lot of new growth of vegetation including wild flowers and catclaw of course.
Incredible amount of butterflies and toads along the entire route. Saw three snakes! :)
