john and i have been wanting to do some backpacking, both to hike some arizona trail passages and to test out some new gear
this seemed like a good section to cover with good water sources, accessible trailhead and the right mileage for an out and back
hit the trail around 0730 thursday morning and found a campsite along the fred haught trail about 12.5 miles in
set up camp, filtered water and lounged around for a couple of hours, then day hiked the remaining piece of the segment (which we had done before)
up at first light, hiked out and were done by noon
we had thought this might be a two night backpack, but easily finished in one
drove over to happy jack lodge for lunch, then down to blue ridge reservoir for a dip in the lake :)
we had decided on passage 29 for the next two days, so we headed up that way
it was nice to have a lighter load - mine was 24 pounds including two liters of water to start with
my rei quarter dome 1 is a keeper, the sleeping bag will take come getting used to
still need some work on my food choices
it was nice to camp near a water source
always good to practice
thanks jlp, good choice :)
