We Took a lazy drive to Walnut Creek after lunch in Prescott Friday. Knowing we hadn't enough time for the loop Joe did a few months back, we opted to do an out/back to Juniper Springs on the Old Military Trail. Finding ourselves at the spring quicker than I had thought, prompted the push up #20 to the top of Juniper Mesa. V and I plan to make a loop in the future to spend time checking out all the cool Geology and Views in the area.
This is the first leg of a three trail hike in the Juniper Mesa Wilderness, in which I was going to have an overnighter. Summary and pic's will be posted.
