My buddy Dan suggested doing this loop out of Flagstaff today, and I was all like OK, let's do it!!! 10 miles or so of varying good/bad dirt jeep road to the trailhead. More cars than I was expecting to see there, but didn't run into all that many people on the trail. According to the trail register, it appeared to be quite a number of parties on the trail today. Dan and I went up Abineau and the down Bear Jaw. Great trail, great scenery!! Rain started to fall just as we were returning to the jeep.

After the hike we stopped in at REI Flagstaff so I could check out their supply of Goretex jackets. As I walked in the front door, one of the lenses dropped out of my glasses, and I had to spend the remainder of my visit with one hand over the lense free eye so that I could see out of the other. I must have been quite the unique customer for the day. Interestingly enough, they only had one Goretex jacket, in my size (L), in stock! What the heck?? Isn't Gore right there in Flagstaff?? Doesn't it rain like every day on the San Francisco Peaks? So, I didn't buy a jacket :(

And! As we drove through Flagstaff, we hit every single red light. And And! We got stuck at the light waiting for not one, but two trains to go by! I swear, it must have taken us 30 minutes to go 4 miles. AAARRRRGGGGHHHHH!! Sorry, I was really hungry!
