It was a return trip to Babe Haught with a great group! Seven of us met at Walmart and headed up the Tonto Fish Hatchery and started hiking around 9am. The entire area was choked in with smoke and it made for an annoying climb. The views were gross and you tasted smoke with each breath. With much effort we topped off and it was easy going from there.

We crossed FR300 and saw Chumley’s calling card. From there we completed the final 1.5 miles and arrived at the campsite Chumley picked out. He kayaked in. It was still early in the day but everyone felt lazy and relaxed. The hours ticked by and we spent some time playing fetch with Kiva. She loved jumping into the lake! Was really fun. We were also visited by Bruce & Denny. They were doing a big day hike and stopped by to say hi. Great seeing you guys!

We started our campfire around 6pm and settled in for the evening. A few people brought dehydrated dinners and some cooked over the open fire. It was a very pleasant evening that got colder with each passing hour. Most of us turned in around 10pm and temps got fairly chilly overnight. I would guess the lows around 40 degrees.

I was the first one up the next morning and started the fire again. Everyone casually woke up (except JuliaChaos) and we had another lazy morning. We slowly packed up and said our goodbyes to Chumley and started the hike out around 11am. The return was very relaxed. All the smoke cleared up too so the views were wonderful. We were back to the TH around 1pm and headed back to Phoenix.

This was a really nice & chill trip. Sometimes it’s nice taking it easy and enjoying your surroundings. Knoll Lake is a great spot for kicking back and relaxing. Thanks everyone for coming out it was a fun trip!
