Re: [Hammock Camping] Re: Superstitions hike anyone???????
- Thank you for the input.
I had to change my plans-here is the photographic part
of the trip report I am making for the Flagstaff
Hiking Club ebulletin.
If anyone wants to read the full report-please let me
Debarking at Canyon Lake Marina
DOLLY in dry doxk
The trailhead at Canyon Lake
Looking into the Superstitions with view of Weaver's
Needle. There's a trail in the photograph-but, you'd
have better luck finding Waldo.....and he isn't even
in the photograph.
Between the slope-topped mesa and the "flat" topped
mesa in the saddle with Indian Paint Rock Mine.
Who says you can't hand a hammock without trees? It
isn't much but Indian Paint Rock Mine is all mine for
Cascades over slickrock-near junction of Boulder Creek
and Second Water trails.
Setting up camp
Remnants of a skunk
I wonder why its called Boulder Canyon????
Starting to cloud up
Needle Canyon Creek joins Boulder Canyon Creek.

I tried living in Ft. Lauderdale-- teaching at Broward
Community College and Florida Atlantic
