Day two of fun with JJ3. Day one was Needle Peak in the Organ Mountains of New Mexico. We did this AZT hike N2S. Got started from Reddington Rd a little before 9 AM. John drove the chili van at mach speed on the dirt road to our starting point. The 30 cases of chilis bounced around so much both of us were coughing and sneezing. I'm learning that on the AZT you are lucky if you can easily access the ends of the segments. We had to hike extra on both ends from where the vehicles were parked.

We made good time hiking up to the high point a little before Manning Camp coming from the north. Took a little break at Manning Camp for a snickers bar and to check out the area. Nobody else around while we were there. John swung on the rope in the tree. We thought we would make better time going downhill from there, but it never really panned out. It got a little warm the last ten miles or so and it seemed we were hiking into the sun most of the day. Nice hike. Long day. Glad to get home, clean up, and have a cold one. Thanks for the weekend John. Good times.
