But then again in only 24 and yes . . . video games use to be more fun. I plan on doing this one in about two weeks with the wife. Right now with any luck I will be heading up to Lakeside, AZ to use my German Sheppard as a Therapy Dog. We just passed all the testing last week. But I am not sure if Therapy Dogs International (TDI) will let me because we are not yet trained as a disaster relief team. Wish me luck.
Also te-wa you linked 2 hikes, both which look like a blast. Just a few questions. On the Algonquin trail (the first photo set you linked) http://hikearizona.com/decoder.php?ZTN=576 you mention big dipper. Is this trail realted to the Dig dipper trail you linked? Also in the Big Dipper trail explanation you mention a hard hike up hill. Out of these two hikes for a person who is starting out which would you recommend? I see that you and people in the trip logs mentioned taking the water route. Would you consider this feasible for a dog? Any idea how deep it is, or fast moving? Also if we start in the A.M. would the water be too cold this time of year for us or the dogs? Thanks again for all the information. It’s nice to be able to ask questions on a forum without being told to search first, or RTFM.

I will keep the original directions/route in mind, however.
