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

How To Put Out a Campfire
A campfire must be extinguished by drowning it with water, stirring with a shovel, and repeating that process until the campfire is cold to the touch. A campfire is still a danger if it has any trace of heat, and must not be left or abandoned. Wildfires can begin by abandoned campfires that rebuild heat on windy days and then blowing embers ignite surrounding grasses and brush.
