So - I had this plan. I was going to step out as a volunteer on a project with the Sky Island Alliance. I have been spending too much time on the AZT lately and wanted to get into a whole different part of the state. They had an event planned for the Galiuros, out at the Jackson Cabin. Perfect.

Well, weather and timing got in the way, and the planners changed the location to...wait for it...the Arizona Trail in the Huachucas. Can't get away from that pumpkin track! Grrr!

Well, I figured I would still have fun doing something different. The project was to do spring monitoring on Wilderness springs off the Sunnyside canyon portion of the AZT. I haven't hiked all the way to the crest on that side, so what the heck!

It was a fun weekend, even if we did cut it short for that one freak snowstorm that shut down our plans for Sunday. We camped near Hannah Tank close to the lake, and our drainage-bottom location gave us a nice cold wake up on Saturday morning. After that, few of us were up to another very very cold night and even colder hike back up to the crest so we called it.

I did get to check out a remote spring that I doubt I ever would have seen if not for this trip. Fascinating weekend spent with other naturalists in the gorgeous Sky Islands. Maybe next time it'll be a little farther from the AZT!
