The weather is suppose to be bad starting Monday through the rest of the year so if I'm going to get the 6.5 miles in to get me past 700 miles for the year I better do it today. I chose to do a portion of the AZT from Pistol Hill Road to Colossal Cave. I have done this before but it was over 6 years ago and the last time it was really hot. This trail is close to home, within 10 minutes and today's weather was perfect. I wasn't trying to boost my AEG which is a good thing because this is a fairly flat hike, in fact I was surprised it even had 600 feet of AEG. I guess if you do enough in and out of side canyons it will add up. As for reporting; water-none, wildflowers-one but I think it was confused, Autumn foliage-done. The trail is in excellent condition, only got off trail once and that was in the park along the road and I was day dreaming and missed the obvious sign indicating the trail exits the road. This is a nice hike if you are just looking to get out for a few hours to avoid doing the chores at home and when you do get home you won't be too worn out to do the chores you were avoiding..
