I drove the shuttle car from Shorty's Well up to Mahogany Flat Campground, with a brief stop at the Charcoal Kilns to be a tourist.
I started hiking at 9:30am. The trail is in excellent condition and I chugged along. It wasn’t long before I noticed Joe and John coming up to pass. I learned that if John asks if I know how far it is to the summit, I do not want to respond with “We are on switchback number five of 14.” That response is worthless. :)
I came across a patch of snow and took time to make a snowman. I arrived at the summit in time to watch the drone take off. When I hike I measure in Piestewa Peaks, and I know Angela counts Shaw Buttes. It was neat to learn Joe thinks in terms of Camelbacks and John thinks in Flat Irons. I’m pretty sure if I was on a hike and someone said “only two more Flat Irons and we are done” that I would sit and cry.
Soon Karl, Scott and Ken showed up and I heard their tale and I was glad I was the shuttle driver.
On the way down to Mahogany, Karl and I stopped at Bennett and Rogers Peak and we took the service road down from Rogers.
