This was the second time this year I've gone in from the Woodbury TH to Dripping Springs via Fraser Canyon. The 1st time we did it as a true loop hike back up through Randolph Canyon was not that enjoyably (due to a too warm a day), but this 2nd trip doing it as a lasso loop(see my pic set comments and posted GPS Route) was very enjoyable!

The water was running all the way down Fraser Canyon(Coffee Flat TR#108) which made for some great photo opportunities and the blue sky with some neat clouds around added to the beauty of this hike. Once the Coffee Flat TR entered Frasier Canyon, I stayed mostly in the creek drainage and off the actual trail to avoid cat-claw but mainly to take advantage of the enjoyable water scenes. About half way down the canyon I found what I am pretty sure is a chunk of real SILVER(that was embedded in a piece of quartz rock). I took a pic of it in my posted pic set- :next: http://hikearizona.com/phoZOOM.php?ZIP=82540 Let me know what you think!

We had two awesome hikes out of the four hikes we did during our New Years Week camping trip under Byous Butte and this was one of them! The most awesome one was on New Years Day and I am now awaiting my new HAZ hike description to soon be posted so I can issue the pic set and trip log.

Do you all remember this HAZ Guy- :next: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=3401 Well, I have been chatting with Randy (from Tucson) since this forum thread in June'08, and I convinced him to join us for this, our planned last night of camping under Byous Butte. He drove up early Saturday with his friend Jeff to checkout the Devil's Chasm area in the Sierra Ancha, then headed over to our place in the afternoon. I promised them a gourmet Italian meal from Hank's Hilton if they would bring firewood for payment. They did and we had a nice visit, campfire, and a full blown Italian with desert and more.. Also, Jeff is now in his final preparations for beginning the Pacific Crest Trail in two months.. Good luck Jeff!! http://hikearizona.com/phoZOOM.php?ZIP=82559 :DANCE:
