Since Dripping and Aguirre Springs are closed and Rabbit Ears Canyon has seen a lot of us lately, we thought we'd head into Achenbach canyon to do some exploring.This is fairly last minute and we're planning on improvising on the hike itself so the objective here is just to go hike deep into the canyon and then head out after a few hours of exploring. This is a local favorite.
