Three weeks later.... remember I said I wanted to make this my workout hike for the summer. Well I did it again and Kathy, Karl, Amy and Tugger decided to join me the day before. I was glad of that plus Karl drove. I am still not in the mood to hike alone; I should say my brain doesn't want to hike alone :lol: .

Kathy kept a pretty good pace. I guess she decided since I was in training mode, she was gonna really make me work out. I dragged the last mile up from Bear Jaw Canyon as I watched ahead to see if Karl, Amy and Tugger had stopped yet; and finally we made it to the spring box at Rees. For some reason I thot the spring box was at Bear Jaw Canyon thus we ended up hiking an additional mile... again. (Kelly and I ended up doing another mile 3 weeks ago too)

It hailed a bit at lunch and then rained so we had to rain gear up. It got cold so we decided to head back down. The rain let up and it finally warmed up enough so at the ten mile mark Kathy and I took off our jackets along with a small break before we finished our trek. It was, as usual, a glorious day on the trail and as great a hike as three weeks ago.

At the car we had our celebratory beer. As we drove into Flagstaff the skies opened up and it rained pretty hard. We met Amy's cohort in town and they had lunch at Cornish Pasty; what a cool place. On our drive back we could see the bright flames of the Brooklyn fire line to the east of I-17 as it was dark now. We also had a delay due to a traffic accident below Sunset Point.

Now don't be alarmed but I did not take any video and took very few pictures... mostly because I had taken them 3 weeks ago. I think I got my camera out five times. Even I'm surprised.

Oh, and once in awhile, don't forget to look back at the trail you've traveled.
