Filling in a couple more segments of the AZT with my cousin this weekend.

Got dropped off on Sonoita Hwy near the beginning of segment 7 Friday night, and camped near the trail. Besides the light breeze the temperatures were great.

Did 20 miles and some change on Saturday. This was some of the easiest walking I've done yet on the AZT.

Saw 3 mule doe just after leaving the Creek at the beginning of segment 8.

I was slightly disappointed when we got to the ranch before Colossal Cave and the gift shop was closed, I was craving some sugar.

The Colossal Cave area was definitely the highlight of the trip. The campground caretaker let us camp there for free. The running faucet was nice to have near camp, although the wash right next to it was running pretty good. Cold that night.

Great views of Mica, Tanque Verde, and Rincon after exiting Colossal Cave park.

We got picked up at X9 Ranch Road, leaving 2 miles that still need to be finished for #8.

We are aiming to get out in the next 3 or 4 weeks to do #9 and #10, and to complete #8.
