I started at exactly 7:30 with a cloudy sky that was supposed to last most of the day. Ahead of me was fog, which was supposed to burn off around 8:00 or 9:00. No matter, I entered the fog at around 8:15 and was in it until noon. By the 3 mile mark, I was completely soaked, and my feet stayed that way until I finished. I wish I could say I enjoyed my hike, but frankly, my feet were in agony 90% of the way. It was nice to get out, it was just too soon after yesterday's rain. Sabino is flowing more heavily than I've ever seen in the upper part of the West Fork. It was actually really tough to cross without getting all wet, and I eventually did give up on staying dry and just plowed through thigh deep :? .

Well that one is done and over, but somehow I feel the need for a do over. I haven't crossed it off the list yet.
