I had just cleaned up after Kendrick and joined the group around the massive fire when Hippy began rounding up a group for a sunset hike up Wild Bill. I only had one day up here, and I was going to make the most of it, so I finished my Grand Canyon Sunset Amber Ale ( :D ) and hopped in Chumley's Taco.
It looked like a little bump from camp, but the combination of Kendrick, 2 beers and 8000 feet of elevation made odd little bumps of water begin to form on my forehead. I made a mental note to Google it when I got home and slogged up to the saddle.
We broke into two groups, with the more adventurous scrambling up the higher unnamed peak, and my group choosing to play amongst the flowers on the meadow that is Wild Bill.
Soon the group merged again and we all enjoyed a cloudless sunset, marveling at the idyllic expanse below. The air cooled and we worked our way back down to the trucks, piling in the beds and bouncing back to camp, smiling and laughing. I looked at the expression on the face of the young daughter of a HAZ member (I think it was Madison - so many new names) and couldn't help but think this would be a memory that would last her a lifetime. Just a simple ride in the back of a pickup through a field, hard to put your finger on really. To be surrounded by grown-up strangers who haven't lost the wonder of exploring their world. I hope it was as inspiring to her as it was to me.
