Ahhhh the Trans Mazzy Hike finally came to fruition. Previously planned and thwarted by weather we were back in the saddle so to speak. Our group of three met up with Bruce, Ken and Fan at 5:30am at Shea and the 101. We swapped cars and went our respective ways. We took Kens Jeep to the Davenport Trailhead while they took Karl's Forerunner to the Barnhardt Trailhead. We started our hikes just prior to 7:00am. Weather was perfect starting out and stayed that way for the entire hike.

We traveled along the Davenport Trail to Club Cabin (or what's left of it). There we hung out for a bit and then continued on our east bound journey. About 12 miles into the hike we crossed paths with our westbound counterparts. Everyone was doing well so we continued on our respective ways. We took the Davenport all the way to the Mazatzal Divide Trail. At times we lost the Davenport Trail however we seemed to always regain it in short time. The Divide Trail and the Barnhardt were like super highways by comparison.

We were back at Karl's car by 5:30. This hike was awesome! Along the way I saw one whitetail deer. We saw two Western Diamondbacks within 5 minutes of each other. Tons and tons of Wildflowers and for me a bunch of new territory. Couple that with great company and I call this one a winner!

Thanks Bruce for putting this one together. Thanks to Ken and Karl for the transportation. Good times!
