Four Peaks Revisited

On this trip I wanted to complete the four peaks section of the AZT, so I parked at the sunflower trailhead and hiked sobo (southbound) against the nobo thru-hiker traffic. I passed several hikers and I was still amazed at how small some of their packs were. Not long into the hike I came upon boulder creek which had plenty of water and some pools that were worthy of a hiker bath. I believe there are a few pools that last beyond when the creek drys up and it could be a good swimming hole if you’re willing to sweat out the heat to get there in late spring or summer. After about 8 miles the trail turns into a road for the remaining 12 miles up to the browns peak trailhead. While hiking along the road this manzanita growing out of a rock caught my eye. It looked like a little bonsai tree.
