After three weeks of not hiking, and two and a half weeks of that spent in the flats of Louisiana, this hike was exactly what the doctor ordered. I do realize it was an ambitious hike to get back out there and I slowed the group down some because of it. I looked at the elevation profile and thought, well, it's just up, up, up, followed by down, down, down. Nothing to worry about, right? Well, my muscles had a different idea, but I'm glad my mind can control them most of the time and I managed to push through the pain. It was beautiful, and well worth it. It was good to hike with Liz again (and then we went to Rocks & Ropes the next day - yay!), and it was good to meet Nick and Glenn.

A word about the trail - we did lose the Pima Canyon trail for a bit as we were descending. There are quite a few game trails up there so it's hard to know which trail is the right one. I was glad that Glenn (driskill) had saved the route in his GPS and was able to get us back on track.
