Back on the AZT. Today was our first Double. The plan was AZT#7 Las Cienegas and AZT#8 Ricon Valley. Three parts of these trails were recently completed.
- The reroute around the rt 83 / E Sahuarita rd intersection on AZT#7,
- The nice approach to the end of AZT#7 whick now drops into the best portion of this Hike, Cienega creek in Davidson Canyon.
- The twisty turny completion to AZT#8 coming into Hope Camp.

Both passages were in excellent condition. We saw more Hikers, Bike riders, and photographers than on any other section(s) to date.

Our Cienega Creek lunch spot, was the Hike highlight for me.
Joe's Break buddy, will be a classic. Check out his video ==> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LyZiQMa_Aiw

It got a little toasty around 11, but then Nick dialed in some cloud cover to make the rest of the trip pleasant.

Got to see my first Diamondback of the season (Also on Joe's video)

Thanks guys for another splendid day on the AZT!
