This was supposed to be Wayne's Memorial hike to take some of his ashes up the Draw... except his sister didn't realize that what she thot was a box of silver were his ashes as I thot Mia had them. Oh well. We decided to do this hike in his honor anyway but we had intended to go further.

Mia, Wayne's daughter, and Anya her daughter and Mia's boyfriend Joseph and GuRa and Ambika and me took up the Siphon Draw Trail a little after 9. We had intended to make it up to Siphon Faucet. We started out and though it was a little warm, it was breezy. Joseph ran ahead and would meet us up there. We slowly made our way up the hill and the temperature slowly warmed up. This trail is a somewhat steady incline and not the smoothest. GuRa ended up talking to someone he used to know but it's been over 15 years so Ambika went down to join them.

They eventually headed back up to where we were and as we were making our way up by the Gatekeeper, Mia whined just a little which gave me the opportunity to suggest we just go to Wayne's Rock. When we hiked this back in 2004 together (Wayne, Mia and me) Wayne saw this light under some boulders to the right (south of the trail) so we hung out down there back then and took several pictures. You have to hit it just at the right time for the light to fill the underneath of this area. Wayne was notorious with finding unique things like this when we hiked.

Well it was the perfect place to call it good so we hung out for a long break, took some pictures and just talked. I see there is more graffiti on the underface of the boulders so that's a bit disappointing. We headed back down and Mia's group had lunch while I packed up Tonto Jr. Kelly came back from her hike and joined us for a bit before we all went our separate ways. Mia's group went for ice cream, my group less Kelly went to Mammoth Saloon for lunch and Kelly went home for a nap and football. We saw Larry's vehicle at the Bluebird as we passed by.

It was a nice weekend with friends and family. My first birthday without my brother. We had planned on growing old together and traveling together as we are very close in age and very close in general. I have to admit, it's been tough having to write three obits in 3 1/2 years but Wayne's was the hardest. So thanks to those who came out and shared the celebration via a Tibberfest. It was great fun hugging everyone :y: .

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