I started doing some hiking with one of my coworkers at the National Weather Service in Tucson in the mid 1980's, and suggested a trip up the Apache Trail and then on up to Workman Creek in the Sierra Ancha Mountains. I had not been there since 1970, and figured a car camp there would be something Ken P. would like. It turned out to be a great adventure. :) Camping on Aztec Peak was perfect! I set up my small tent and he slept in the back of my truck. Thankfully, the tarp we brought came in handy, as there was a heavy dew and it kept his sleeping bag mostly dry. :lol: We drank mostly bottled beer on that trip and we used a vintage opener my Mom had given me to pop the tops. After we got back home and I was cleaning out the truck and getting things ready for the next trip, I couldn't find the opener and figured I might have left it on Aztec Peak. So, I enlisted my Mom to accompany me on a wild goose chase back up there the next week to try and find it. Crazy stuff. We never found it, but Mom finally got to go to Aztec Peak. :lol: (I can't even remember what was so special about that thing after all these years, but it did provide Mom with a long wild day out of Phoenix! :D ) Her reaction to this trip was the reason I decided to make it her final resting place years later: [ triplog ]

Note: Date of this trip is a guess, as I scanned the photos in and have nothing definitive. Should be close though.
