Joe said this hike practically hikes itself. I’d figure this triplog would type itself but I had to recruit BrunoP to ghost write for me.

Can I help you with that? If you could have seen Joe’s look, it was priceless. I’m the proud recipient of the bronze medal. Joe said it was the 3rd most scared he haz ever been. I felt bad for about 3 seconds and then laughed. Bruce wishes he had it on video. It wasn’t my plan to scare him that way but the hike was off to a good start.

The car ride to the hike is sometimes better than the hike and the hike is usually better than the ride home. The last time I hiked in the Pinals was 10 years ago, you can search for my in-depth description on Oct 11, 2008.
Ralph and Alice haven’t changed much since I last saw them. They still complete each other's sentences and like to do side by side comparisons. Ethel asked Fred what is your battery level? Fred said 62% and of course Ethel said I’m higher at 68%. Are you in airplane mode? My track is longer. Blah...blah...blah. Wilma said smile and Fred said capture. Archie said bad words and so did Edith and so did I.

A quarter mile into the hike bam Eagle down. The conversation went to past hikes about blood and cactus needles. Next up, the leafers were ohhhhing and ahhhhing. They weren’t impressed with the brown pines like I was though. They also weren’t in as big a hurry to eat lunch as I was. Joe shared his awesome cashews as a precursor to what was to come. You take the good with the bad. I decided I’d wait for the bad until the downhill and it made me sick to my stomach. Whenever anybody says these are horrible but you should try it, remember to politely just throw it at them. We played Denny and the Jets and all that rhyme with it . It is always an experience hiking with Joe and Bruce and memories new and old are forged. We saw several cows and Joe stole one of the utters. Bruce was crushing on 31.
