I have tentative plans already for the Xmas break but have not nailed down any specific dates yet. If I have that week available I wouldn't mind joining you.

sounds like a great trip! I am sure I will be out there wandering around at that time. If you need a pick up or drop off place let me know and I may be able to help.

Sounds interesting. Do you have a Google earth route plotted to share? I too know the area pretty well having explored the Martinez canyon area from the bottom and coming down the cactus spring trail over a half a dozen times. Wet years are the best. Which way up the canyon are you going after you arrive at the Jack Miller rock house cabin? The n/w fork is an absolute bitch. Don't ask. If it was me I would base camp at the rock house or Auga Alta spring and go day trippn' with a day pack.

Oh man, Rockhopper, I think I remember that pool from 1994! I was 14--my dad and I stopped there for a snack about a third of the way down from Jack Miller's, if I remember correctly.

I haven't yet been up past the Miller cabin to the NW fork--every time I look at Black Rabbit and thereabouts I see a sea rock and green overgrowth that makes me go 'yech', lol. The cabin is beautiful, though.

The closest I got is one year a friend and I tried to hike the upper reaches of Horsethief via the creek bottom--it taught us a whole new appreciation of what undergrowth can do.

The Wife has plans leading up to Christmas so I am out. I will be heading out to the Cactus spring trail area after the Jan/Feb/March rains. Probably pack in from the top N. end and through Agua Alta Canyon and Martinez Canyon. I may come up from the bottom end too if Martinez creek is flowing. I came across a previously unknown (to me) Native American site covered with over growth in the area that I would like to spend more time to photo. Have a safe trip and take plenty of photos!

Beautiful shot of the Miller cabin! March or April you say? Decent chance of having water up there then.
