Five hikers and a dog drove to Rustler Park, happy to see recent flood damage at the Turkey Creek crossing had already been repaired and the Forest Service road grader was working on higher stretches of the road as well as we drove up. We got onto the Crest Trail and headed southbound, sampling raspberries along the way. Between Bootlegger and Fly Saddles, we stopped in several places to collect berries in the large patches that are ripe. In addition to berries everywhere, the springs we passed were all flowing very well, as were various seeps and side drainages.

Ultimately ending up at Fly Saddle in late morning, we climbed to the top of Fly Peak for lunch, then half the group descended the south side and looped back around while the others returned directly back to Fly Saddle. Regrouped, we returned to Rustler Park after about 8 to 9 miles of hiking.

Next Thursday, August 17, we will hike the Burro Trail out of South Fork, headed for Horseshoe Saddle. If you would just like to hike in South Fork, or up to Red Rocks and back, feel free to join us and go as far as you like. Meet at the Silver Peak Trailhead at 8 (AZ) / 9 (NM).
