Angela already wrote up such an amazingly detailed trip report - and as I'm writing months later as I finally come off of a long string of trips both on and off the Arizona Trail, mine will be brief. This was indeed a magical hike - there were many times that I had to just stop and exclaim "this is ridiculous. All this beauty - its just ostentatious! So over the top!" I was in awe of the environment. I think that because it has such a short season to live above the snows, the environment up there just packs 12 months of amazing into a few weeks. And we were lucky enough to see it!

The thunderstorm on Boulder Pass was enough to strike fear into even the heartiest soul. When we learned later that it was the same storm that started several destructive fires in the park, we were dismayed. It was humbling.

Overall, I'd say that this hike is totally worth flying half-way across the country and renting a car and spending money on hotels and boat rides. If you want a blow-by-blow, check out Angela's great reports or my photos. I'll try to tell the story there.
