I'm doing 20 & 21, out and back. 21 is my section. Leaving right now in order to get there and find a campsite by this p.m. Have a safe trip. That's an amazing area you picked.

thanks! We're hiking Passage 9, or Sections 16/17/18, for AZT in a day! Which one are you doing? So all of Passage 9, Good Job!


Most excellent!! and with Karl and Kathy (I think Section 59, all of Passage 29), I'd say we're hiking a nice contribution to AZT in a Day! (We are doing Section 71.)
Hopefully everyone that has committed across the state can get 'er done. We were a little short last year and this is the latest update:
Updated 10/10 9:55 pm
Section 19A: Redington Rd to Molino Basin
S̵e̵c̵t̵i̵o̵n̵ ̵5̵5̵:̵ ̵F̵R̵ ̵1̵2̵3̵A̵ ̵t̵o̵ ̵B̵l̵u̵e̵ ̵R̵i̵d̵g̵e̵
S̵e̵c̵t̵i̵o̵n̵ ̵5̵6̵B̵:̵ ̵F̵R̵ ̵8̵2̵ ̵t̵o̵ ̵G̵o̵n̵z̵a̵l̵e̵z̵ ̵T̵a̵n̵k̵
Section UR1: Canyon Vista CG to Route 66
If you know of anyone who is interested in participating, please let them know about these holes!

For me, sometimes it's just as much about the journey as the destination.
Oh, and once in awhile, don't forget to look back at the trail you've traveled.

and I see we have some other participants: Tracey and her friend Sandy at the end of their 2-day AZT #30-#29 backpack.
