After bailing on Reef Townsite we took a short break to catch our breath and did a quick out-n-back on the Perimeter Trail. Tracey saw two deer that I didn't on the way out, but we both saw a trio of deer in another area on the return leg.
Other than that... nothing special to talk about, just a few more miles for the day.

I opted for a short hike today and the Perimeter trail in the Huachucas fit the bill. This is a fairly easy trail, 3.7 miles one way (7.4 round trip) with very little elevation change. Not a real exciting trail but pleasant. A little bit of car noise from Highway 92 below the last part before heading into Miller Canyon, for some reason I found it annoying. No wildlife spotted on the trail but saw the usual dear in the yards of the houses on the drive in through Carr Canyon. I thought maybe they were yard decorations at first but they moved. I heard lots of turkeys while hiking the trail but couldn't spot any of them. I really enjoyed the views to the east and of Miller and Carr Peak when I entered Miller Canyon. Returned the way I came but was't done yet so I took the Nature Trail to the Carr house. This is a 1 to 1.5 mile loop off of the Perimeter Trail. The Carr House was quite extensive, only the rock or brick walls remain. The only wildlife on this section of the hike were two bird watchers that weren't very wild at all. Carr Creek still had a good flow. I didn't go down to Miller Creek but I assume it was flowing as well. I could see this hike being combined with the Clark Spring Trail to form a loop. This loop would also take you through the Carr House area. A connector route from the Perimeter to Clark Springs on both ends would have to be figured out. I finished this hike by noon so I had time for one more and that would be down on the San Pedro at the ghost town of Fairbank.
