Mom doesn't get a lot of summer visitors so Mike and I decided to go say hello. Temps were extremely nice to Peak 2 then up to 90 degrees at the end. I'd do it again in a heartbeat. Took 6 quarts agua and consumed 5. Wore pants and a long sleeve dark blue shirt... the only super thin poly I own, not as hot as feared.

At one point I thought Mike lost his rope as it dropped off a bush when he passed. My vision is on the decline. He didn't bring rope, it turned out to be a snake. Roosevelt Lake is currently the nicest blue I recall. Air quality was pretty good judging by the crisp view of Pusch Ridge in Tucson. Peak 4 was kinna undesirable as the gnats were crazy through the brush. The slightest brush of a twig released thousands.

On the Amethyst Trail we confirmed rather large bears inhabit the area. A monsoon storm will probably wash away the confirmation.

Social media figured out a wilderness profit angle. Shamelessly profit on anything driven by plugging the crap out of Havasu, etc. Almost as ethical as a school fundraiser promoted by hookers.
