Bruce and Joe let me join them on this hike. It's been years since I've been in the area. Many fond memories with the family camping. Cool area with awesome views. Throw in great weather and great company and how could you go wrong. The start has a stand of Manzanita trees that rival the ones on telephone trail in the Pinals before the fire. The trail is great in this area. After that not so much. It was more like a cairned route. Kudos to Joe and Bruce for keeping us on "trail" :app: . As my skepticism would set in we would come across a trail sign :o . The rolling hill, boulders, and grassland were pleasant to the eye. A shame the trail is in need of almost a full retread. The only drawback on the hike was the CATCLAW. I've seen thicker taller catclaw on Halfmoon trail in the Mazatzals but not for this many miles. After awhile you started getting hit in the same sore spot over and over. I apologize to Bruce and Joe as this had a severe affect on my disposition. I'm not usually one to throw out vocabulary words of that nature but gosh darn that catclaw. Well we survived and Bruce got us home safely with an awesome sunset on the way. :y:
