1st trip
Long overdue was GET 10. We have been talking about this segment for over a year now. Scheduling conflicts always in the way. Well today Father Dave, his Friend Norm and I all met up and tackled it. We met in Thatcher at 5:45am and swapped cars. I headed up to the Eastern end and they went to the Western side of the segment.

The weather was brisk but not cold as I headed up Ash Creek. In about 5 miles I came to an overlook of a waterfall. It was spectacular! Maybe 100' or more? The sound of the water raging down was awesome and it was a sight for sure. After a brief viewing I continued on up the arduous slope. Several stream crossings were successful without getting wet. Upon reaching the top of the Ash Creek Trail I realized I had just gained over 5000' of gain in the first 9 miles! Wow good thing I ate my Wheaties.

After that I checked out Webb Peak and then continued on my journey. I would say the Clark Trail with it's killer views and the Ash Creek Trail are the show stoppers on this one. Actually I would say this is the best of the Passages I have completed so far.

My only complaint is that darned route finding section on the Johns Canyon Trail. It was a pain in the pumpkin. Especially trying to follow the "Official" GPS track which is map drawn. The track served as a guide I suppose as did the blue flags when and where I could find them. If that section was easily navigable I would give the GET 10 a solid 5 stars. Throw that in the mix and I still give it 4 stars.
