AOTC hike led by legendary leader Don Mowry. Did this loop clockwise, Joe's hike description is counterclockwise. 6 of us did the complete loop. 3 others went as far as the giant saguaro & turned back. I showed 14.2mi and 3,017 AEG. Lots of wind going up Bluff Spring. Tom P. had get intel on the springs and campgrounds. I struggled with my "hiker's knee" and slowed the group down. Rather hot today - 85degrees (??). Lots of catsclaw really ripped us up.
