1st trip
Around Sept 24th a large swath of central AZ had one overnight low uncharacteristically low. jj photographed color on Sept 28th. Pinal Mtn usually hits mid to late Oct.

Telephone seemed better received by the group as a whole. Probably since we didn't rush up the ridiculous steep grade. Into Six Shooter there was good color. 35% still green. Ferndell Spring was nice. It appears the foliage is being dragged out for a longer period. On the bright side, more hikers will get to experience this year. Likewise it's a tad low key.

Believe this was my first trip including Ferndell. It felt like a gem for it's entire length. ( we descended )

After the nonsense peaks we headed down Icehouse. Once again it was very nice, just not a power punch. This area is so intense on maples the leaves can really accumulate deep. Not this year, more of an even cover along the ground. Very pretty no matter how you slice it. Met toddak along the way! Mind boggling the only other hiker we crossed paths with on trail.

Fun hike, fun group!
