Quick morning hike with the dog. The weather was perfect. Finally saw the new spike strip gate just below the trailhead. I'm curious about what its purpose will be and what idiot thinks a spiked gate 7 miles from pavement is an appropriate thing.

Also disappointed at the worsening parking situation at Carney by the Wave Cave hikers. Now hikers have dug out a couple makeshift parking areas that extend ridiculously far off the road. The state needs to figure this situation out and those hikers need to suck less.

Overall... great morning 😁

Three parks in two days and I actually got in a little actual hiking today. Can't beat the grind these days.

Great day with my girlfriend and the dog. We were hoping for some remaining fall color. The aspens are still popping with yellow but the rest is done. Lots of water-- Beaver Creek is flowing like early spring.

Perfect weather-- a bit of a lasso hike heading out to Squaw Flat Spring and back around.

Started off a nice day in Tuscon with a hike out to Seven Falls. Plenty of water though minimal flow.

Washington Park to the Fred Haught Cabin. Nice easy dayhike with the dog. There's tons of water right now. Ran into Almal (again) and Ultrazona.

Took the dog and girlfriend out for a hike-- started at the Barbershop crossing at FR139 and hiked to Dane Spring. We planned to be back to the car by 2:30 or 3 to hopefully miss the storm. We got back at the planned time but didn't miss the storm. We hiked our last mile through a pretty thick hail storm-- put our heads down and kept moving.

Ran into Almal. Realized after talking to him he must have been the hiker we drove past on 300 that morning. I should have stopped and offered a ride. The next backpacker/hiker I see gets a ride in his honor.

Fires still smoldering along 300 but the hotshots didn't seem worried-- its pretty darn wet up there.

Plenty of water at Dane and Coyote Springs.

Couldn't tell how much is actually flowing but there's plenty there to filter and small pools in the drainage below that's generally clearer. Just as likely to be rain water.

Reliable as always-- water flowing out the pipe.

Nice dayhike with friends and the dogs. The sandy trails may be a little warm for the mutts right now but it stays fairly shady upstream so it wasn't too bad. Beautiful day in general. I packed out a couple painted rocks-- this fad has got to stop.

We knocked this out on our way back from NM. The aspen areas were nice. The burn areas were a bit annoying. The grade was pretty pleasant. I was glad to get this one checked off and round me and Lily's miles up to a solid 40 for the trip.

This was a fantastic four days in NM. The Skyline Trail was definitely the highlight of the trip. I was glad to be able to take the dog on this one-- Lily's biggest trip to date. Glad we shaved it back from the original five days-- elevation is a killer with a heavy pack. Thanks for putting this together, Chums.

Great hike with the dog and a friend. We walked 92 to the end of the ridge and dropped into Beaver Canyon. We took Beaver until it started to tighten up and then bushwacked back up to 92

Much less traffic on 300 than expected.

Quick early morning hike with the gang from the dog park. We finished at about 8:30 and had the dogs out before it warmed up.
