November 9, 2015: La Barge Canyon, Superstition Mountains, Arizona

A hiking book suggested doing this hike as a partial loop (lollipop/balloon), but I ended up making it into a full loop by going off trail up Lower La Barge Canyon and Lower Boulder Canyon; here's a map of my route. (It would have been a LOT easier to do it clockwise. Oops.)
