Drove up to Flagstaff early and went straight to the trailhead. This was the first hike of what we hoped to be a fun 4-day hiking intensive trip around Flagstaff. Our lungs needed to adjust to the elevation and the Weatherford was going to start that process.

The parking lot at the trailhead was almost full. The day was totally beautiful, so the crowded trailhead was no surprise. We geared up and set out just behind a young couple who were running the trail. Who the heck runs uphill starting at at 8,000 feet elevation?

Wasn't long before our lungs were complaining, but we did't listen given the beauty of the pine forest. We took a short detour onto the Kachina Trail and found a nice shady spot for a light lunch. With new energy we set off back up the slope. We realized we were a bit late for the prime Fall colors, but the remaining gold of the aspens was more than enough to inspire us further up the hill. Eventually we got as high as our available time and limited lung power was going to allow. It was enough for some fantastic views. We turned back for the trailhead and began to let gravity work for us for a while.

Checked in at Little America, our base camp for this expedition, cleaned up and headed to Cottage Place for a superb dinner. The Winter Squash soup is simply fantastic, but everything is really good at this little jewel.
