Good luck! At first I thought you were crazy attempting it in this heat. Then I remembered that S Bass gets a lot of shade, so I now think you are only slightly crazy! Stay wet and cool!

This is a great opportunity http://hikearizona.com/photoset.php?ID=31571 that shouldn't be passed up for anyone that can hack the hike through dry heat. Aside from a great adventure, Dave is very knowledgeable on the area. He does fib a bit on a 800 ft waterfall that dwindles about 65 per mile until you reach it.
Hike Arizona it ROCKS!

Lots of shade on the S Bass, especially this close to the summer solstice? I think I'd stick with your first impression.

I think he might've purposely waited until he saw you were in Show Low to post the event publicly. ;)
