A cactus garden along the trail. Barnhardt Trail has many such gems. In early fall, it is in the shade most of the morning as well.

A beautiful sunrise, after camping out near the intersection of Barnhardt Tr and AZT.  Good water at Chilson Spring.

This area was subject to fire a few years ago. Although there are few large trees remaining, the snags can be quite beautiful.

This tree offers an excellent look into the area's history of wildfire. The area is recovering, but as of March 2017 it's still mostly bushes.

Look at the new spring box at Chilson spring.  No water anyplace else nearby, but the spring box was full.  Thanks to the team that recently installed this.

This is the "good" part of the Y Bar Basin Trail with the small, not the large rocks.
