The camping group and the dayhiker group met up on the road. We had thought about doing the Rincon but changed our minds and headed off to the Spine. The Spine is awesome! We saw a recent posting of a tracklog that looked like a fun way to add a few more miles and we headed off.

The drainage that we departed from was formed of a beautiful slick rock. There was a little water flowing and there were Cottonwoods that hinted of year round water (but maybe underground most of the time). We found a good place to leave the drainage and start heading up! And up we headed. It was pretty steep. But the good thing is that it wasn't as much of a bushwhack as most of the crew is used to.

The top of the ridge is piled with all sizes and shapes of rocks. It was fun moving along them sometimes up and sometimes down. Joseph did awesome, as usual. That little dog is amazing.

The flowers were starting to pop as the day went by. Plus, the sky was pretty clear due to the recent rains. It was a great day for a hike.

The views from along the Spine are awesome. The views from the next ridge we took were also great. I'm so glad we did this hike.

It was nice to meet Outdoor Lover after having traded several comments and PMs on HAZ!
