I took my two sons and grandson hiking in Chiricahua National Monument. I thought John would really enjoy the strange rock formations along the Echo Canyon Trail. This was suppose to be a 3 mile loop hike along Echo Canyon, Hailstone and Ed Riggs Trail with about 400 feet elevation change but when we got to the Park the road to the top was closed due to ice. I wasn't going to be deterred though since we drove over an hour to get here. We decided to hike to where we wanted to go from the bottom. This made the hike an 8 mile round trip with almost 2000 feet of AEG. To make it even more challenging throw in snow and icy trails. The sun was out and when you weren't on the north side of slopes the high 40's, low 50's felt really nice. Was actually perfect hiking weather. John when not on his butt from the ice did very good. There were quite a few people visiting the park, more than I have seen in all my combined prior trips here. Most people hiking though didn't go more than a mile and a half in to the Sarah Deming Trail. Once past this point there was no sign that anyone had been on the trail. We did see deer,Turkey rabbit and mountain lion tracks in the snow. Great hike and was impressed with my grandson who managed to do this hike with about a 2 MPH rate.
