Back in Hackberry Canyon again!This time we went a bit further up than we had been before. There were hundreds of little frogs and we hoped to see other wild life but this trip there was none.We saw no one else which was good.
We hiked up to the dinosaur tracks in this canyon in early March of this year and decided to come back and see what it was like in September. And boy were we not disappointed with what we saw, Just after where the water starts to appear we saw a large Garter snake but it did not stay for a photo, also further up we saw a Tarantula on a stone in the middle of the water and it was gone by the time we came back down. We had to cut short the hike as the rain was forcast for the afternoon and the dark clouds were starting to gather. We wanted to get down Cottonwood Canyon road while it was still dry, about half way down the road I saw some Pronghorn Antelope. All this wildlife on the first days hiking of our vacation
This was "part two" of a weekend trip. Loved this canyon and have been anxious to get to it for almost a year. It was as beautiful as I had imagined it would be. We walked a few miles back into his narrow canyon through a few inches of water on hard packed sand. This was pure eye candy! Thanks PageRob for setting the weekend up and taking a few of us into your backyard.
