Sandy and I went on a short hike this morning. We did the Coon Bluff loop. Good thing we didn't have anybody else along or they would have questioned our claim to be "experienced hikers". Take 1 - After picking up some snacks at a Circle K we arrive at the trail head T about 7:00 am. It's only then I remember we need a Tonto National Forest Day Pass. I've only been there before about 10 times so it's not like I would know something like that ahead of time. So 20 miles and 30 minutes later we're back at the trail head. Take 2 - we follow the trail keeping to the left along the river. About a quarter mile later we reach a cliff. It's a dead end so we back-track to the beginning. Take 3 - success. . . sort of. We are on top of the bluff now and there are multiple faint trails all over but nothing definitive. After some wondering we finally find the "real" trail. Hey. It's all part of the adventure. It's what memories are made of! Had a great time.
