1st trip
52 miles in 49 hours hiking the Arizona Trail sections 1, 2, and 3. Starting in the Mexican border and to Patagonia where my motorcycle is waiting for me. Thanks Logan for the shuttle ride. AZT 2 has been rerouted and my map has the updated cords.

On day one I started at the Mexican border and followed the ridge line of the huachucas until I dropped down to Parker canyon lake.
Day two was in the hills and a really long hard day. I was running low on water and found this cattle pond. I really didn't want to get water there but I haven't seen water for a while. I attempted to get water but the mud was too deep. I tried stepping on some drag marks thinking they might be more sturdy but I couldn't do it. I started hiking down the canyon and saw what made the drag marks. It was a dead cow. Maybe a lion dragged it out of there. So glad I didn't drink that water.
Half day three was the easiest and pretty uneventful except I think I found a meteorite 🤞
I saw a kit fox, mearns quail, cous, and a Gould Turkey. Not one snake until I got home and there was one in my driveway.
