This day was all about Peru Creek. We aired down at the trailhead before heading up to do Hunkidori Mine, and then we came back to finally do the trail. There were quite a few people on the road, and lots of campers all the way to the end. It was a pretty day and a busy Labor Day Weekend.
The trail was mellow and busy as we worked our way in. It wasn't long until we got to Chihuahua Gulch, and the trailhead had lots of hikers parked at it. We did that trail, came back to Peru Creek, and headed farther east.
We enjoyed the scenery even with all of the powerlines. Then we did Cinnamon Gulch, at least as much as was open. After Cinnamon Gulch we headed to the end of Peru Creek. There were quite a few cars parked at the lot near the end, and we saw a Jeep Renegade at the end who ended up backing out to the parking lot. We snapped a few pictures but didn't get out.
On the way back, we did Warden Gulch. By the time we were done the shadows were getting long. We parked at the pull-out near the trailhead to air up, and then we headed into Keystone for dinner. It was a great day!
