Last hike in the Chiricahuas. Lower elevation, so a little different flora and fauna.
Severe run off following the Horseshoe fire has changed the landscape near the creeks and wiped out the trails in places. We didn't complete our planned loop because of route finding issues, but it was still a very nice beautiful hike.
The purple flowers with yellow centers are going to seed. The seeds are similar to fox tail. They get into your clothing and drive you nuts. We removed many hundreds of them during and after hiking.
This hike is worth repeating now that we've had a chance to research the route.
Excellent first trip to this part of the Chiricahuas. Thanks to Randy and Kelly for helping put this together. :)
