We departed the Ponderosa campground a little after 8am with a plan to run up Frijoles Canyon to Apache Springs and over to Water Canyon.
Starting the descent into Frijoles Canyon
That's me. David sometimes lets me get ahead.
Crossing the stream in Frijoles Canyon on the “bouncy bridge” Weeeeee!
I don't think this section of trail sees a lot of maintenance or traffic.
Another stream crossing. I'm pretty sure he went in moments after this shot.
Indeed we crossed the stream numerous times.
An interesting sign in that this isn't really an intersection. It was reassuring nonetheless.
Hiking up out of the canyon towards Apache Springs.
Topped out of the canyon and ready to run again.
The aspens had lost all their leaves making for a great running surface.
