2020 New Year's Day - Florence to Superior

Recommended Posts

On New Year's Day 2020 a small group of us had fun exploring in the Florence area.  We started in Box Canyon and went to the Coke Ovens overlook.  Then followed a trail into Walnut Canyon which connected to Battle Axe Trail near Superior, AZ.  GPX attached.  It was a brisk morning but turned out to be really nice weather in the afternoon.  It was a very long day on the trail but it was really good to get out and start 2020 right!!  Link to the full photo album: https://photos.app.goo.gl/A42TpzPNqLsUKDCs9

Box Canyon had some water trickling down it and out through the rock

Lunch and then on to the Coke oven overlook.  It is private property so you can only see it from the top near their property line.  The views are still neat!

The trail down to the river is washed out but nothing too bad.

Yesterday Adam @Rubicon 18 asked me if I ever posted my pics from this run, and I realized I hadn't! Here's a link to all mine, and posting some below.   Diane's Pics 

 

It had been a really long time since we had been out there, so it was great to go back. The scenery is awesome.
