I was determined to complete this 25 mile AZT-Passage 16 which runs north from the Florence/Kelvin Highway Bridge and ends at the northern White Canyon Wilderness boundary with the Tonto NF. This was my fourth trip for completion. This time I only had 2.8mls to go so I was able to spend a more relaxing day working on my MACRO pics and also doing some needed AZT trail maintenance (cutting back overgrowth) on the hike in.

It was a super clear, blue sky day for taking pics and the best day overall for variety of wildflowers I have yet experenced this Spring'09. I hiked in about .5mls past the north AZT-16 boundary line into the start of AZT-17 and had lunch at a nice, scenic plateau spot. My hike highpoint for the day was 3750' at the AZT-17 turn around point.

This short AZT hiking section of the White Canyon Wilderness is truly a very scenic and remote area to hike in and I do recommend IF you have the correct vehicle (you don't need a "Grasshopper" like mine), you should try to plan a visit here soon. I have posted my pic set which pretty much follows my hike in and out, and I have also posted the GPS Hiking Route and the GPS Driving Route(with applicable notes) to help you find your way..
TRY IT-YOU WILL LIKE IT TOO!! :D
