Set out with the Wu Tang Clan Posse. Good to be out on the Arizona Trail after our longest delay. Hiking is like a box of chocolates. We had that piece today that sometimes you just want to put back in the tray. Gramps was singing ICP(acting like a fool as usual). Denny was in prime. Father Dave tried to burn our ears off with music(I use the word lightly) almost as bad as Tibber's Bolton
So all wasn't bad... or was... ah never mind
Ocotillos along this segment are world class thick
! Really the only remarkable element of the journey. I may have been a tad grumpy with zero sleep feeling like JuLizzyAchaos. I did manage to sneak in an hour sleep while Denny conversed about Voodoo Economics. The temps are arising too so this would probably be more enjoyable in March.
On a truly positive note... The trail is in excellent condition. Appeared someone raked it a quarter mile ahead of us the entire way. No twigs or scratchies on this segment either. Big kudos to the team(s) that worked it
The highlight of the day may have been looking for Scholefield Spring in the most unlikely terrain. No luck, didn't expect much, yet still curious. Also saw one or two sego type wildflowers.
Thanks to all!
