Did a 4 day backpack a few weeks ago out to Rockhouse Valley. Did a big loop up thru Rockhouse cyn, over to Mojave then over to the Cotton woods. Dropped down into Alder and then followed the Buck Ridge line before dropping down into Jackass Flat. Mostly did spring cleaning.

Cowboy spring before


After


Barrel cleanup


Nicholias needed lots of brush cut back and an improvised spout


Birdhouse


Sleeping setup with a view of Rockhouse Valley


Sunrise


View of Jackass from Buck Ridge


Buck Ridge register...kinda lonely






Total Mylar Balloons this trip - 10

Good show guys! The animals and people thank you for your efforts. I love Rock house valley or as I like to call it. " A positive vortex". Too much time in Sedona AZ. Ha! Did you filter or boil the water? How did it taste? I always packed in water most of the time as insurance.

Cool pictures and good to see all the water. Always an area I wanted to explore.

Really wish I could of joined, my bag was packed but I was stuck a couple time zones away.

Filter.....water out there is fine, no problems. We still need to carry lots of water since the springs are not conveniently located logistically speaking.

Looks like a great trip, Daren. Can personally attest, the crew on this hike is always busy fixing the springs and hacking down the evil tamarisks. Nice work!
