Descending the Huachaca Mountains, I meet “Bruise”, Vince, and “Lucy Lulu”.

Farewell to the vistas from the Huachacas, as we follow Parker Canyon down to the Canelo Hills, to 5k elevation.

We pass several streams, pools, and one lake, and the ground is often wet from a recent rain. Vegetation turns to pine forest, and then mixed conifer shrubs and mountain mahogany.

I meet “Butterfy” in the afternoon, a lot faster than me, but we end up camping near each other as the day ends early with rain, that continues through most of the night.
