A lot of new North side territory for me. The weather was a little warm but the breeze helped out at times. This search started off easy and then the manzanita was tough and was an energy drainer. I did some climbing and some scrambling but I forgot my helmet so I kept it pretty tame except for a few instances. The perspective from this vantage point confirmed some of my beliefs but it also showed that even with several teams; the surface hasn't even come close to being scratched. Again no clues. I saw the eagle on the Verde again and that is always exciting. I didn't see the North side Falcon this time but I could here him making noise. There was one car at the trailhead but never ran into them. I met 2 AZT'ers and 2 AVT'ers.
