Little Picacho Wilderness Area Hike

Sunday: (01/27) Lou made scrambled eggs with onions, peppers, sausage and spinach for breakfast. We relaxed at home most of the morning. We eventually took a walk over to some bulletin boards by the restrooms. We checked on local activities like the music jam that usually occurs on Sunday but it didn't happen today probably due to the recent rain leaving a big mud puddle where they usually meet. On the way back home the registration office was open as well and Lou and Dawn checked on whether they could use Dawn's metal locator here. We had a spinach salad with ham, cranberries, onions and oranges for lunch.

After lunch they dropped me off where Ferguson Road crosses Senator Wash Northwest of the camping area, about a mile from our campsite.

I hiked up the wash into the Little Picacho Wilderness Area inside some slot canyons for a couple of miles.

After a bit of normal wash i came upon this really narrow slot. it would be neat to be here, up on top, when a good rain storm filled to entire slot.

Lou and Dawn did a little metal locating in the exposed portion of the lake bed though there is much less exposed today because they've be refilling the lake. Chili beans with corn bread for dinner. Lou was out again doing some off roading with Dawn. They drove over to the old beaver pond to check it out. There was a big mud hole I didn't ant to go through yesterday but she checked it out and went through today. In the evening we had a little light show with the lightening and some good winds here on Hurricane Ridge. We even had a little shower. It was supposed to only be partly cloudy here today. Nice day around home.
