Ah yes another AMAZING Arizona Trail section. We met up at Lone Pine Saddle and headed on down to my favorite bridge in Arizona. From the Roosevelt bridge Passage 20 of the AZT takes off heading north on the Vineyard trail. It runs the full length of the Vineyard to Mills Ridge where this section continues on the Four Peaks Trail. All along the way the views of Roosevelt Lake and the Sierra Ancha are spectacular.
Then at times you get a vantage of Four Peaks that is so close and so powerful it feels as though you could reach out and touch them. As you continue on for miles you realize that they aren't really as close as they appear but that they are simply massive.
It was great to hike this one with Bob because just a short year ago he guided me on my first trip across ALL four of those peaks. Otherwise known as the Mother load!
It is also always good times hiking with Dr. Frick or is it Nick, or Dr. Fraley? Ah who cares! He is a cool cat and he likes pepperoni pizza so that goes a long way with me.
Speaking of that Nick and I went to Big Daddy's after the hike and made a pretty good dent in a large pie. Thanks for treating Nick! Next one is on me.
