Fun day to choose the ridgeline hike. I set out initially for a run up Flatiron, but Pass was covered in clouds and I was drawn to the opportunity to hike in the clouds. As it turns out, Flatiron and the rest of the Superstition Mountain ended up covered in clouds also.

Cloud cover was thick just above Wind Cave. Once I reached the top, any views were non-existent. I could hear planes flying over head, but couldn't see them. The low visibility made route finding a little challenging. There were times were I would stand still and just wait for a small break in the fog to give me a clue. I managed to stay on route.

Once I crossed the ridgeline, I began my way down the north side. This is where I screwed up. Ran down a wash and missed the Pass Mountain Trail intersection. Knew something wasn't right since I was getting too far away from the mountain. Continued on for 1/2 mile, then turned back. Oh well, so I tacked on an extra mile of fun.

This is my gym. I have to travel down a bumpy road to get there. There are no treadmillls, no machines, and no personal trainers. I walk..I run..I breathe the fresh air. I can go any time I want, as much as I want and there is no membership fee.
