We start out Saturday morning driving through pouring rain and thunderstorms. I'm thinking this is going to be fun...not. The rain stopped as we drove to Upper Horrell TH. It started to rain again as we started hiking in but stopped in an hour. That was it, no more rain Saturday or Sunday. Reavis Ranch was empty and the only other people were two bow hunters who came in on horses and camped. The temps were nice as the cloud cover kept the sun off. The trails are overgrown in areas with catclaw and some New Mexico locust starting in. The growth is thickest on the Campaign trail, some on the Gap trail. The Fire Line trail is still good. We attempted to climb up on the mesa across from the ranch but after a few attempts the manzanita won the battle and I decided to come back another time with body armor. We found between 6 to 8 apple trees loaded with apples. The good trees are all closer to the creek.
The evening was calm and uneventful. I kept hearing planes flying over which takes away from the wilderness experience but what can you do? In the morning we got water at the creek and hiked to Circlestone and up Mound Mountain. We opened the register and found the last logs were from March 8th when I was up there with Tortoise Hiker & rally_toad. The hike back on Campaign trail was rough. The trail wasn't bad at first but the catclaw a few miles before the Gap trail intersection was unavoidable. Dana got the worst of it and donated some blood. I ripped my pack (Ultralight vs catclaw - not good) and pants but survived with most of my flesh still attached. We stopped at the Pizza & Subs place near Punkin Center. They really load on the toppings. Pizza and beer make everthing better.
