Long, Long, Long day... Up at 12:15 am home at 10:30 pm...but way worth it!

After dropping off Denny's car at the North TH, we made our way on the road to the South TH at Montezuma's Pass and the Mexican Border.
Wondering while driving Nick's 4x4 truck if Denny's fwd Focus would be able to make the 5 or so creek crossings. With a little luck, no rain, and 4 people to pick it up if it got stuck.... we waited until later on this portion of the trip.... Heck, that was 10 plus hours in the future and we had some hiking to do.

Border Patrol was prevalent on the road and especially at Montezuma's Pass.

We suited up and made our way down to the border for some border crossing shots (Camera). We were barely able to slip through the 3' gaping hole in the fence, but we did.
quickly taking pictures on the Mexican side, we scurried back up the hill beginning our AZT #1 Hike.

I'm really loving these sky Islands. Starting in lowers desert flora and making your way all the way to Aspens and water a-plenty. I enjoyed all the green, rivers, waterfalls, and fields of flowers. The river we had to cross 40 or so times became a little tiring after awhile.

GREAT hike with a great group of misfits!
(Remember the Christmas cartoon special "The Island of Misfit Toys"? Joe reminds me of that little dentist wanna-be dude)

Denny - Great AmphiFocus memories, I wish we had video of that!
Nick - forgive me for the fingernail marks in the Grab Strap and Dashboard
Dave - Say something special to the man for us (Especially Joe)
Joe - Can we go one trip without you diving in front of the Camera?

6 Passages, 118+ miles down.
