Thought I'd do a bit of 'splorin'

Parked right off of the 260 and started my mostly off trail loop. I encountered the first mosquitoes in quite awhile in the humid morning air.

First up, was was to check out Calloway Lake. I wanted to get there before the Labor Day boat traffic got too heavy. Mission accomplished.

Next up, or down, I dropped into Willow Canyon. Nothing too exciting here. I followed game trails where possible. It helped getting through one of the theme plants of the day, Locust.
I jumped out at FR142 and climbed up Calloway Butte. Pretty good 360 views up top. Someone decided they needed the Fliver Disc more than the Butte did.

Next up was a short cross country jaunt to the Wilber Canyon drop in. Once again, Locust was the theme adding sprinkles of Poison Ivy. This section of the canyon is a one and done. Not real exciting. Up and out and over to Bear Canyon.

Bear Canyon was a little nicer and got better the farther down I went. I had picked 4 jump out spots, and settled on the 2nd one went the PI finally got too thick to evade any longer(hopefully)
It was a steep climb out, once again dodging the Locust.

A bit of an FR walk along Good Enough Ridge, until I dropped back into and out of Bear Canyon on my way back.
