Gosh, I haven't backpacked since December. Not my fault though, bought a house and you know how that goes. smile Alex and I did a quick overnight to remind ourselves 1) how to find our gear and 2) how to use it. Big Spr. is still flowing and the vegetation has come roaring back since the last fires swept through. It's a little tougher to get water there than last year due to all the vegetation, but still doable. We also checked out Middle Spr. on the way out, though we didn't descend all the way to it, saw some morteros through binoculars just to the east of Middle Spr. Daytime temperatures in the mid to high 80s.



Sunrise was great, but we quickly left camp behind to search out shade for breakfast.







The Thimble was beckoning, but that has to be a cooler weather trip:



I'd found this pottery drop last time I was here in October and forgot to photograph it the first time. Biggest pieces I've personally stumbled across.





On the way home, we stopped for ice cream (not shown) in Ranchita:

Looks like a nice trip out, Jim. Not familiar with that area at all. Need to get out there.
