April 2015 With the unseasonally cool temps this seemed like a nice option to reintroduce Jessica to some elevation. My main concern was lack of shade. As it turned out there were a dozen good spots to take a break in the shade! About what I expected crowd wise...
Interest - Bio
I'm willing to help trim Twin Peaks Trail in the Bradshaws or Rock Creek Trail in the Mazzies for a day with anyone willing to join and provide transportation from the Valley. Any day.

• 6th Grade Goddard Youth Camp Alumni
- Arbuckle Mountains, OK

• 8th Grade - Canoed the Illinois River
- Muskogee OK

• 2010-2012 - AZT
- Finished 800 miles Mexico to Utah

• 2013 - Isis Temple
- Rope Free

Camp Goddard may have been the best experience of my life. In the 8th grade I got a shirt stating I'd canoed the Illinois. Perhaps a few miles, loved the experience nonetheless. The Arizona National Scenic Trail was made possible by the great members of HAZ. Albeit semi conscious, Isis Temple is hands down the most gratifying memory.

Dad didn't grasp HAZ but enjoyed witty banter. Whenever HAZ surfaced in conversation dad would ask "joe, why hike arizona?". To which I'd respond with an ear to ear grin, because dad... it ROCKS!
