    I almost decided not to hike this morning. There was other things I wanted to do - study Python OOP, joule thieves, PIR sensors, fun stuff like that. I'm so glad I decided to go!

    I started out at the Pima Canyon parking lot, and headed up the road to join the Javelina Canyon Trail. Then down towards the Beverly Canyon parking lot. Almost there, and I see another hiker coming towards me. He looks familiar. I stared harder. I know him! As he got in talking range, I blurted out, "I recognize you! You're... You're... Turtle! No. Lil' Tortoise! No. Uhhhh..."

    He graciously offered, " @Tortoise_Hiker ?" "Yeah, that's it!" :doh:

    I babbled on, telling him that he was one of my HAZ heroes; that I'd been reading his triplogs for years; "watching" him hiking the AZT with his friends, etc., etc.

    He kindly asked about my AZT hikes, and I blabbed on and on about what I've done. He kindly listened and made the appropriate comments, as heroes always do. (My kids would ask, "Did you go all fan girl on him?")

    Needless to say, I was on Cloud 9 for the rest of my hike up the Beverly Canyon Trail, and then down the National, back to the parking lot.

    It was a great day to hike, cloudy the whole time. Never saw the sun, even on the drive home. What great day! :y:

    met fletch and john at 0445 this morning for our second annual fourth of july hike :)
    up javelina and mormon loop, down national and javelina
    shaded much of the way
    didn't see many people on the way up, but heading down it got pretty crowded
    both lots were full when we finished
    overnight low temps and dew point creeping up a bit but still very pleasant
    had fun with two of my favorite partners
    home by 0700 :D

    intended to do the rehab hike but felt fine enough to do the full figure eight
    nice day to hike, bike, play golf or tennis; just be outside :)
    stopped for late lunch at los taquitos on the way home
    probably posted enough photos of the street taco plate so i didn't take one today
