AZT Segment 1 in July

Post by Hiker_Wannabe » May 20 2015 6:42 pm

Has anyone or does anyone know anyone who has hiked Segment 1 in mid July? Planning a AZT kickoff for my 50th birthday on July 20th, which I have no control over my birthdate, but that's really what I want to do. Any input? :y:

There's a triplog from the end of August. Temperatures should be the same but there would be less water in early July due to the monsoon not kicking in yet.

@mazatzal
Thanks for adding that. The mobile view doesn't break down by month, and I didn't realize I could scroll down so I didn't see the others! ](*,)

Just be careful not to find yourself in a wash or, God forbid, a slot canyon during monsoon season, or the next time anyone sees you, you might be in the Gulf. :D
But seriously, be careful. Should be okay up to San Jacinto day, generally.

San Jacinto day? Is that a Texas thing or a PCT thing or ?

Maybe she meant El Dia de San Juan? June 24th, the traditional first day of monsoon in the Southwest.

I also looked up San Jacinto Day which turns out to be April 21. It gets hot after April 21, and it rains after June 24. Or thereabouts. The Spaniards had a day for every saint.
