Pam picked out this hike for us to do. Seemed it would be nice and leisurely which is all I was up for after just returning from my week at Glacier National Park. The hike starts off through a wonderful meadow before reaching a fenced off area... what fence? There's flowers over there and butterflies! so in we go to take our pictures :DANCE: . We continue walking to the other side and realize, it's not going to be so easy to get out of here but we eventually found an area and sent Trish thru first :D .

You continue to walk in the meadow until you wander into a more forested area. We found the spring pipes and pondered about that based on the directions we were reviewing. We continued deeper into the forest and decided to rest by a bunch of maples :) ... not that we needed a rest but why not?! We finished the hike up the hill to the road. We weren't sure about the trail so we went across the road and down the hill a piece before coming back up to the road to discuss, "Where are we exactly?" :-k

Soon between Scout and the hike desc and Pam remembering her conversation with Todd, we realized we had started the hike about 1/4 of the way from the TH so that's why we were confused. Once we realized this, we were content to head back the way we came. On the way back when we got to the meadow section, we decided to stay on the right (east) side which takes you back and up into the forest following some sort of trail. As the trail started to take us further east however, we decided to head back to the west where we once again followed the grown-in track of the road before coming out into the beginning meadow.

All in all, a nice stroll on the Mogollon Rim with my hiking/camping/picture takin' cohorts. It was the perfect little hike to take on what was a leisurely and very fun weekend with our fellow HAZers. Here's the video: http://youtu.be/X5l_YGCpZh0
Oh, may I suggest you change the quality on youtube to HD1080. You can find that setting next to the minutes just below the video screen (or next to the clock icon)

For me, sometimes it's just as much about the journey as the destination.
Oh, and once in awhile, don't forget to look back at the trail you've traveled.
