Weatherford Trail - July 2011

With 3-day/2-night permits for Mount Whitney (see => http://hikearizona.com/decoder.php?ZTN=1649 ) in early September, need to get a couple of backpacks with altitude on the books before then. An overnighter on the San Francisco Peaks seemed to be the "ticket", but it is monsoon season...

Booked the Friday off work and drove up to the Flagstaff Holiday Inn Express late Thursday evening. I was feeling a little under the weather, probably from the 7 inoculations stabbed into my arms (a requirement for an upcoming business trip to Asia).

6am rendezvous with Larry Reynolds for breakfast, consolidated our gear into a single vehicle, and we were off to the trail head. Our approach from the east to Schultz Pass was thwarted by recent precautionary forest access closures, after effects from last year's Schultz Fire. We stopped at the Coconino National Forest Flagstaff Ranger District office where they clarified that the closures are generally defined by last year's burn areas. Armed with this information, we drove to Schultz Pass Road via the western approach. We are the only vehicle at the Weatherford trail head.

Larry and I are on the trail sometime after 8am, greeted by a light rain. This will be the theme for the day, a little rain, a little blue sky, followed by some more rain...
