Superstition wilderness thanksgiving honeymoon

Here are some photos of our trip to the superstition mountains east of Phoenix. The saguaro were out of this world!! And the cholla! This is my second trip in the western lower elevation part of this wilderness area and I’ve been pleasantly surprised with the amount of water. I didn’t get any photos of a pretty gigantic-bouldery box canyon because I got a little activated with some technical spots and the light getting low. We were able to get really remote pretty quickly even though the peralta trailhead that we took to link to our loop is very busy with day hikers. Seems we saw bear poo and fur. I kept hoping that it was a coatimundi or an ocelot, but that’s smaller poo.

    Beautiful! I was born right next to the Superstition Mountains, in a trailer.
