This was Fan’s first time on section 15 of the AZT. We started at the northern TH off of the Kevin-Florence highway. There was a smattering of snow on the mountains and a surprising amount in the shady parts of the desert floor. At one point we saw three deer’s about a 1/3 mile out. I noticed something moving and realized it was deer. When they stopped running, they blending in. Some of the washes were frozen over.

Fan took a rest break about 3 miles from the AZT 15 A/B marker. We took the Ripsey wash back to the Kevin/Florence highway.

The hike started out and ended cold. The weather was perfect from 11am to 4PM. At the end I had three layers of shirts/jackets and a ski-mask on. The full moon allowed us to night hike without a flashlights.
