I had some meetings in Sierra Vista and visited Bernie, the southern regional steward for the Arizona Trail. For years we've worked on the Crazies trailbuilding crew together and he often brought cookies baked by his wife Margie. They were always the highlight of the day- what amazing bar or cookie was it going to be this week? They had me over for lunch and it was fantastic, complete with a to-go bag of cookies to take home. I was headed to Coronado National Memorial to meet with the visitor's center and some businesses along the way and so I asked Bernie if he'd want to come along and take a hike down to the border monument which marks the start of the Arizona Trail.

It was a lovely day for it and I was happy to see that last year's Monument fire didn't take away too much from the beauty of the area. I like how you can't see the border monument until you're right near it and the fact that barbed-wire border fence is much more friendly than the big walls they have not far away. This was the first passage of the Arizona Trail I did in February 2008. So much has happened since then- the AZT has certainly changed my life. Left a note for Annie that has been posting on the AZT forum on HAZ recently :D
