Got an early start and finally got back on the AZT. The best part? Well, there were three in no particular order. One was just getting started on another section of the trail after a long break (since August). Second was the connector trail from the Cross F trailhead; nice flow of water in the creek, so it's a musical stretch of trail. Extra music from the birds that were singing in good numbers at 6 something in the morning. Third highlight was the flowers -- pretty much everywhere, except not so much near the creek. Hiked almost all the way to the 87 before turning around; quiet enough morning around Sunflower that I could hear a domestic scene about who left the door open so the dog got out! The views on the hike back have me looking forward to the other part of this passage, Peeley to Cross F (sounds good that way with all the downhill!) And I'm encouraged by LindaAnn's description of the road condition to Mount Peeley trailhead. Last note for the hike: the horses (8 of them) near the Cross F trailhead are friendly, and I realize how tall they are when I'm walking through the whole group of them on either side of the trail.
