Western Superstition Wilderness Backpack

December 12 - 13th 2009. First day we stomped 13+ miles from Tortilla trailhead to Charlebois camp. The second day consisted of a 10 mile trudge to Boulder Creek trailhead at Canyon Lake. Some light rain late afternoon on the second day kept things interesting. My first backpack trip in 15 years and my hips kept reminding me. Trails used: JF, Hoolie Bacon, Red Tanks, Dutchman's, Calvary, Boulder Canyon
