Left my car and 3 gallons of water at the Freeman Rd. trailhead Saturday morning. My husband dropped me off at the junction of Tiger Mine Rd and the 77 and I walked the 1.5 miles to the trailhead. Mostly sunny day, actually got a little toasty at times. Ran into a group of day hikers and chatted a while, but no other people on the trail. The long, rocky descent into Camp Grant wash seemed to take forever, but finally made it and set up camp. Plenty of water at Cowhead well. The big tank was completely full and water pipe dripping. The two smaller troughs were both full as well but also full of bees and tadpoles. It rained off and on during the night, and then rained steadily through the remaining 11 or so miles. Had my trusty trekking umbrella and my rain jacket, so the upper half stayed dry and warm, but my feet and pants were pretty soggy by the time I made it to the car. Very sketchy drive west on Freeman Rd. It was very gloppy and no other cars had been on it yet. Very slow, scary 19 miles! I really loved this passage. Beautiful rolling desert, available water sources and perfect temperatures!!
