when i saw denny on wednesday, he mentioned doing the derrick - horton loop
i invited myself to go along if he could do it on sunday instead of saturday
trails reopened in time after the horton fire
we left town at o'dark thirty
on 260, denny successfully and skillfully slammed on the brakes to avoid hitting an elk :o
started hiking a little after 0530 with headlamps
a bit chilly to start with, but derrick features a nice steady uphill to warm up on
had shade until the highline - horton junction
started seeing some maples along the highline
not quite prime time yet, maybe another week or two, but enough to put us into tibbermode
wandered around the spring a bit, talking to a few folks who spent the night
headed down horton taking a couple of creek side trips
we both felt good at the car, so drove over to see canyon trailhead and did a four mile out and back on the highline
denny knew of a spot with a lot of maple trees, and they delivered
nice finish downhill
great to get away from phoenix for the day, and to hike with denny again :)
thanks for driving and for the good conversation - good to catch up
