Two weeks ago after I dropped off Tracey and her high-school friend Sandy for their 3-day backpack to Kelvin I ended up hiking 'up' the old AZT#17, so it seemed an appropriate choice for her first hike since then.

We followed North Alamo Canyon Road (concurrently the 'old' AZT#17) south to old Mesa Tank Road
Continued east a mile or so on old Mesa Tank Road
Descended a ridge to connect with the current AZT#17
Followed the current AZT#17 for a few miles
Dropped into Alamo Canyon Creek
Followed the dry wash back to the trailhead

The highlights:
- A short side-trip to visit a long-defunct mine
- Meeting a couple from the Netherlands
- Spotting a Gopher Snake near the trail... and filming Tracey actually touching a snake!
- Encountering a 1959 Buick Electra which had definitely seen better days

One video:
0:59 - Gopher Snake
