you all know that i love to hike, right? and you guys know that i love flowers, right? well, this hike took the cake. i have to say that this day ranks right up there with the best day EVER on the trails.

we were staying at ramsey vista campground in the huachuca mountains for our mutual friend's (teambarstool's) birthday camp out, so we were able to get an early start at our 12-mile journey.

originally i suggested just doing carr peak, then southpawaz (bobby) suggested just doing miller, then i suggested both when i figured out just how close i was to having my personal best month EVER in both mileage and AEG (i just needed 8.2 miles to beat my sept. 2010 record and 2843 AEG to beat my august 2010 record). bobby agreed and we had a plan.

little did i know just how wonderful this hike would be. i knew there would be ups and downs both ways, but i knew the crest trail is fairly even - but i knew there would be a little pull up to carr and the pull up to miller. i do need to mention, at this point, that the majority of the trail we were at least waist high in pretty yellow flowers. :budrose:

other things to note on this hike: on the way up, between carr and miller on the crest trail, we ran into a border patrol agent hauling out a few marijuana plants, or at least that's what i think they were since i've never actually seen one. :A1: we texted our friends down at the campground who said there was law enforcement :gun: waiting for the guy at the trailhead. also on the way back from miller peak, when we were just about at bathtub springs, i noticed a bear, who immediately skedaddled without so much as one pose for the camera. [-X this was my first time running into either border patrol or a bear on the trail - so very exciting!

i had a great time on my journey, with a grin ear-to-ear for most of it as we hiked through the flowers. :GB: it was a great day, with great company. many thanks to bobby for coming along!
