Hiked this with my mom today. After about 2.5 miles she decided that she had had enough because she was lightheaded from the altitude. Her diagnosis is that she didn't drink enough water beforehand, and all she had that morning was some coffee and orange juice at her house in Phoenix. She knows that she should know better. We hiked Bill Williams Mountain 2 weeks ago, and she had little trouble. While she was resting before heading back down we had the pleasure of running into johnr1. We had a nice chat that involved both of them making fun of my habitual tardiness. My mom then headed back to the trailhead, and I did what any devoted son would do: I headed for the summit.

Burned up to the summit and chatted with the lookout for about 10 minutes. He seemed cool. I overheard a # of dispatches on his radio: "We've got a group with a fire over here [it was 80 degrees up on the Coconino Plateau this afternoon!];" "I'm following a truck towing a trailer full of camping gear with a lot of fire wood in it...." How stupid are people? There were signs all over the place informing of the no-burn restrictions.

Anyways, Kendrick was a treat for my second visit, and the trail was in excellent condition. There were 2 dozen cars in the TH parking lot, and I'm sure a lot of that had to do with the Kachina Peaks being closed. The Schultz Fire was barely noticeable in the morning, but a significant gray plume of smoke was going up in the late afternoon, but it looked fairly localized as-opposed-to coming from a large area. I couldn't see any of it from the Kendrick lookout.

One thing that we noticed was that our fellow hikers were exceedingly polite. Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, gave way on the trail when we were going up, and everyone said "good morning" or something similar. Not used to that!
