8 hours of driving and 6 hours of hiking in the White Mountains near Springerville --- fantastic!

Skippy and I arrived at Green's Peak (the north knoll) at about 10:30am. We did a perimeter hike along the upper service road and followed the faint trail through the forest on the north side emerging near the Forest Ranger Lookout Tower. This 10,133 foot vantage has views nothing short of spectacular. Made our way over to the east knoll and proceeded to summit the 9,947 foot volcanic remnant.

My only complaint is the constant traffic on FR117 as the weekend recreationists were pulling-out camp and high-tailing it back to the baking city. The views made up for any complaints though.

My trusty GPS had "failure-to-launch" today. I'm afraid it may be in permanent sick bay. Too bad, it's been a hiking mainstay for me...

Also encountered a major delay on the return home on SR60 about 20 miles east of Show Low as a roll-over during a monsoon shower required a helicopter to land on the highway to emergency airlift the injured to the nearest hospital. Hope everyone is ok...
