Joe,Bruce,Dave and I all meet up(4:45 :o ) to knock out another passage of the AZT. This trail sounded hard so we wanted to start by 7:00 to have enough daylight to finish.It took a little longer to set up shuttle so we didn't start until 7:30 or so.This trail turned out to be in better shape then I thought it would be. It did have a little overgrowth but we seemed to make it through that ok. No real route finding issues.The biggest issue was the 5-6 miles of frozen snow.It was very slick in places.The lack of coordination :o didn't help :scared: .I managed to hit the ground at least three times.I know they say leave only footprints (butt) I left more than that.The views of the lakes (Roosevelt,Apache) and mountain ranges were awesome.You travel through a variety of vegetation like Sagurao,Prickly Pear,Manzanita,Pine,just to name a few.There were also a few rock slide areas,cliffs,running creeks,dry water falls,frozen waterfalls,boulders,and snow covered trails.The views of Four Peaks up close from the east side were Awesome!Alhough this was a lot of climbing it was broken up in 4 or 5 smaller climbs so it didn't seem to wear me out quite as bad.We finished with about 15 minute of daylight to spare.Joe was a little under the weather but toughed it out.We wouldn't have left you,really :D .This was a great hike with great company finished off with a slice of Big Daddy's Pizza!!!MmmMmm.Thanks Gentlemen,for another great hike!!!
