Day after Thanksgiving wife and I went out to the creek. My goal was to follow the ridgeline on the south side then drop down head across to the stage station ruins and then up the hill just north where the square ground item is. Probably wasn't a great idea to do this after a winter storm. But fun nevertheless.
Wife getting the first of 6 mylars. We probably could have ended up with around 12 of them.

Some pictures of the creek area from the ridgeline.


Wife never gives up a Geo Marker. So as we passed Leckie she had to go up and get it.


We will go a bit east then cross over the station. Well, that was the plan. About 3/4 of a mile we hit the wash area a 6 foot drop into a mess of
Tamarisk. I didnt have any cutting tools so we headed east a bit and gave up crossing.


Turned around and west along the creek until we found an area to cross. Some of the tamarisk came back with revenge and some didn't. But we found the raging carrizo creek at flood stage. Crossed it found the jeep trail. Late in the day so we headed back to the jeep we parked in canyon sin nombre. The jeep trail soon was underwater. Most of the mud was about 2 inches deep some much deeper. Both sides of the trail clogged with either tamarisk or catsclaw. We crossed back over the jeep trail headed south. Found a loan pair of boot tracks headed east. Ended up at the corner of the ridge just north of Leckie and proceded west along the bottom of it. That was clogged in areas now with catsclaw so at time we were back in the swampbog.


On the way out snapped a picture of Granite off in the distance. It was a fun hike. Got in over 6 miles and the mended ankle did well. Ready for more.

Seemed like everything had snow on it.
