AZT 17 and AZT 16 N2S

Started off this morning at a little after 7 heading south on the Arizona Trail from Picket Post. Absolutely beautiful day and the parking lot at PP reflected that. Clearly I was likely the only one heading to Kelvin as I didn't see another soul all day.

I could tell it was going to be a warm afternoon. I wanted to conserve my water for the hotter part of the day so I didn't drink anything until I hit the Gila. Once there I took a quick break to unload a couple rocks that got into my shoes and then off I went paralleling the river. As I was making my way east I got an Apache fly by. Very Cool!

I have to say that these two sections combine to almost 37 miles and the entire trail is in AMAZING shape. I would say from a "trail condition" standpoint it is the best of the entire AZT with the exception of the Grand Canyon. The views along the way are great too. I got a few nice photos of "Dale Butte" which the AZT folks named in Dale Shewalters honor. For those of you who don't know he is the father of the Arizona Trail.

I had arranged for Denny to pick me up at the Kelvin Bridge. He was running a little behind so I hiked the road from the bridge to Hwy 177. I didn't include that extra 1.2 miles in my log. Thanks for the lift Senior Tortuga!

Great day on the Arizona Trail! Two thumbs up for both of these passages. Especially number 16. It is awesome!
