Being in the Catalinas this past weekend was beyond perfect.....perfect weather, perfect foliage, lots of cristal clear water, there isn't much else i could possibly ask for after all this. Vince, Sara and I started our trek at around 930AM and quickly made our way up to the pools in what proved to be one relentless uphill hike all the way up to the Wilderness of Rocks area. Along the way we encountered a family of four or five coatimundis hanging close to the trail. After we passed halfway point for the day the trail got progressively steeper until we reached Romero pass, our lunch spot, great 360 degree views of Romero Canyon below and the Wilderness of Rocks just above.....which meant more uphill hiking woo hoo! After what seemed like an eternity we finally reached the crossing with the Mt Lemmon trail, we then proceeded to head down to the Wilderness of Rocks and found an awesome camp spot with the most perfect rock in which we made our bonfire, there was plenty of dry wood all and cold and fresh snowmelt water. The cloud cover prevented us from having nice colors for the sunset but it also prevented a very cold night and the temperatures didn't dip below the upper thirties. The following morning we proceeded to head out just before 8AM and needless to say it was so much easier and quicker to get back out and made it back to the parking lot at just after noon.
