Jim was back in town for a wedding and wanted to do a hike. I also had friends from Pgh in town for the Pens game Sat nite, but I was determined to get all the socializing in for one weekend. After getting home later and an early wake up, we started on the trail at 7am.

We took the Pipeline Canyon Trail straight to the Yavapai Pt. Trail and took that out and back and then took the shortcut connecting trail back to the Pipeline Canyon Trail and then to the Wild Burro Trail, down to where I left off last month from the Beardsley Trail. When we started, there was a warning sign that the Pipeline Canyon Trail was closed as the one cove where the water was higher and the bridge was out. Once we got to that point, we started to follow the contours of the land around the cove and encountered a faint trail that seemed to be made from others with same intent as us, to get around the water anyway. At one point in the corner of a ravine we even saw a cairn. The crossing of the big cove was a bit tricky, but nothing worse than anything we've encountered in the Sierra Anchas or elsewhere in the TontoNF.

the bushwhack slowed us down a bit so that when we didn't have enough time to finish the Cottonwood Trail, which I had wanted to do. 2 miles less than planned, but finishing at 11:30am seemed like a good idea since Jim had to catch a plane back to Silicon Valleyland, and I had several chores to finish at home.

weather was cool and cloudy, warmed up later with some sun breaking through. the views up north were nice, lots of infrastructure near the lake mixed with closer views.
