I woke up at 1:00 am left the house at 2:00 am and we starting hiking about 700 AM. Not my normal start but interesting. Linda had the plan so I could just kick back and go along for the trip. The weather was warmer than expected and the breeze cooled us down later on. I thought it might be cold but the temperature was nice and even a little warm at the end. The views were good and the trails fairly easy to hike. After hiking the Flatiron on Wednesday I wasn't sure if I'd do well at this higher elevation but I never really had any shortness of breath. Linda kept a nice steady (easy) pace and even took a detour so I could find some pot sherds. We were on Chiricahua Peak by 10:30 am and starting back before I even got tired out. A nice area and a good hike, I just wish it was closer. After reading a lot of her trip logs it was nice to hike with Linda and good to catch up with Denny again.
