Bassett Peak 2010

Had this weekend circled on the calendar for a couple of months to get my fall colours "fix". Using last year's trek for timing guidance (check out => http://hikearizona.com/photoset.php?ID=9403 and http://hikearizona.com/photoset.php?ID=9437 ), I booked off Monday 11/8 to compensate for 4 consecutive weekends with work intrusions (Future City Competition, Chest 2010, Heart Failure Society). Saturday booked for tailgating at the Coyotes-Penguins game (check out => http://hikearizona.com/photoset.php?ID=13114 ), and Sunday morning had Lynn committed to teaching Sunday School, so our earliest getaway was noon-ish on Sunday 11/7.

Packed up the F-150 with Lynn, Skippy, and Chryssie and made a stop at U of A with some Pei Wei takeaway visiting Tobyn at her condo. On the road to Willcox and checked into the local Holiday Inn Express and went on a reconnaissance mission of Willcox Playa (check out => http://www.azgfd.gov/outdoor_recreation ... laya.shtml ). We will have to make a "serious" attempt to make it out to "Wings over Willcox" (check out => http://www.wingsoverwillcox.com/ ) January 12-16, 2011 this year...

Monday morning we were up at dawn's first light with the dogs demanding their breakfast and morning constitutional. We made it to the trail head about 8:30am without a person or vehicle in sight. Colours were substantial in the lower drainage, but nowhere near last year's showcase. Definitely a "wow-factor" once we made it to Ash Creek Spring where the aspen were at their peak!

First time "overnighting" with both dogs. Shih Tzu on the trail was interesting, Springer Spaniel had a blast (of course). 92 images on the 7D, 91 images on the Rebel XT - it's going to take a few days before I can review any of the photos... :D
