My annual trip down Bonita Canyon to check out them December colors.
Super happy to have my ole' adventure buddy back with me on this one once again!
We first drove up to the Lee Trailhead road and hiked down for the killer view up/down the canyon.
Colors looked good, but are a little off this year due to this warm weather.
Then a drive back down the canyon to hike a bit along Pipeline Road.
Bonita Creek had good flow and colors here.
Great sunset on the drive out of Gila Box putting a cherry on top of a day very well spent.
:D

Morning hike
Up #302A :next: RTM up to Marijilda Saddle and back :next: Down to upper Noon Creek :next: Down Noon Creek Canyon :next: Back up to 302A :next: Back to RTM CG.
Main goal of this trip was to see Marijilda Canyon, it looked awesome and with a light dusting of snow on the peaks.
Then down Noon Creek Canyon to a favorite waterfall for a bit.
Encountered a couple, a hunter & a family of 10 along the way. That may be the most people I have ever seen not only on this trail, but any Pinaleno trail in my life :o
The solitude sucked today ... :lol:
Fun hike
:D

Early trip out to Gila Box to check on the cottonwoods.
The cottonwoods are turning color, should look great in a couple weeks.
Hike for the afternoon was up Dry Canyon.
What a gem this one is especially if you like rocks, geology, etc ...
Was surprised by a late November diamondback in one of the side slot canyons.
Ended the day on an overlook for river views and sunset.
Love this place, will be back many more times!
:D

New area tonight.
Searched for saffordites, then had a small fire before leaving.
Found a great campsite. I need to start camping instead of driving out every night.
This area has become my 2nd home!
:D

One last hike up on top before the Nov 15th seasonal road closure.
Chose Cunningham for the scenic overlook views.
Half way up I encountered a new FS trail head sign ... what?
Hawkins Trail No. 74, a new connector trail linking Cunningham over the mountain to Big Creek ... cool!
Took the new trail over and down to Hospital Flat.
Had a close encounter with a bobcat walking the meadow then noticed a couple G&F bobcat traps set up. Not sure what's going on here ... rabies or just removing a few. There have been a lot of bobcats on top the last few years.
I then hiked over and a little ways down some of Grant Hill where I found 2 more bobcat traps.
Highlight of my day was meeting 2 of the FS Trails & Rec girls at Hospital Flat. We had a good talk and I got some good info on future plans for the mountain.
I had a good day!
:D

Scenic drive up for a last look at the colors.
Past peak above 6000 feet, but still really nice.
Also made a couple stops for some short hikes into the foliage.
Good trip up!
