With power outages still affecting the area and high winds blasting across the valley, four hikers drove into Horseshoe Canyon, parking and starting our hike at the old Roush Ranch site. We walked a bit further up Horseshoe Canyon from there, before turning up Blevins Draw. The views opened up as we climbed towards Jack Wood Pass and along the ridge, revealing Portal Peak, Darnell Peak, and others to the north, and the southeastern extent of the Chiricahua crest to the west.

The wind kept up as we descended into Jack Wood Canyon, exploring the sites in there before having lunch at the bottom of the canyon in a more sheltered spot. Thankfully, it was a warm day and the wind was not cold. After eating and a little more exploration, we returned the way we had come, having hiked 9 very scenic miles.

Next Thursday, March 22, we will hike the Herb Martyr Trail to Pine Park, looping back down the Snowshed Trail if people are interested. This is about a 2,000' ascent to Pine Park. Gloves and pruning shears/loppers are encouraged, as parts of the Snowshed Trail can be prone to locust overgrowth at times. Meet at the Silver Peak Trailhead at 9 (AZ) / 10 (NM).
