My son was home from ASU for the day with the intent of going hiking with the Old Man. We planned to go back out to this track, as last time we tried it it was later in the day, with no map or GPS. That day we followed the faint trail an Carins until we lost them 3 miles or so out, and returned to the truck via the washs.

So... with all the rain today we could have stayed home, watched some college basketball, or watched curling on the olympics... but we chose to go out and make the best of it. We were also on a mission to find the elusive wild burros that were rumored to be in the area.

A couple of takeaways from the hike today... First, I have a great time hiking with my son. Next, there's a peak out there that my son and I have a decided we "Have" to climb (Pike's Peak, has anybody out there ever climbed that one?). Last....Is this really a desert? We were both amazed at how GREEN everything was out there. Check out some of the Photos. We had a couple of side trips on this hike. One was to get to the top of a smaller peak in the area to get some better views of the Lake on the way back in.
