I met up with Kyle, Lyndsey & Jacki for a one night backpack up on the rim. The temps were perfect and we got some light rain for a short time. We were also met by Chumley who brought the ice cold beer! :o

We started from Houston Brothers and 300 and made good time as we headed north. After some time we connected to the Barbershop Trail and followed that to the start of Dane Canyon. We took a short break and then started the hike up the canyon. Kyle and I were out here last summer for this hike and really enjoyed it. This year it was more difficult with the full backpack. It also started raining about halfway up the canyon. We put our rain gear on and kept on trekking. Eventually we reached the junction with U-Bar where we met Chumley and the latest dog he's watching. He convinced us to hike up the hill to his truck for some cold beers and other car camping amenities.

The evening was very relaxing. We had a nice fire and enjoyed dinner. We all turned in around 11pm but didn't get to sleep for long. Some A-Holes decided to go shooting at 1am. They were about a mile away and fired some very loud guns! I'm not sure how long this lasted but would guess 30 minutes. Thanks guys for keeping us up! :x

We woke the next day and enjoyed the morning having coffee and breakfast. We packed up and said our goodbyes to Chumley and then started the hike out by following the U-Bar Trail south. We stopped by Dane Spring to top off our water and then continued hiking. We turned west on the Barbershop Trail and stopped for another break at the Barbershop Canyon junction. From there we all returned to the jeep and on back to Phoenix for the heat.

It was a fun weekend and thanks Chumley for meeting us. The cold beers were delicious! :DANCE:
