Back in August I spent a week in Springerville, going through a self-storage unit I have there, a task I had been putting off for years. Pam was camping nearby, so I took time off my dusty duties to hike with her up Antelope Mountain. It was a very smoky day, and seemed to get worse as the day went on. I don't remember which fire it was, there were so many.

We had a nice hike. We didn't know each other well, but had kept in touch over the years, and I'm glad we did. It was nice to get better acquainted. Pam helped me with my camera settings, since my Nikon is similar to hers. However, as you can see, she's the one who's the accomplished photographer! [ photoset ]

On the way back to Springerville, I flew by a bunch of bighorn sheep gathered at a watering trough next to the highway. I didn't stop, but called Pam, who was driving the opposite direction on 260. I told her that she might like to come back and see them! She did, as you can see from her photoset. These bighorns were re-introduced here some years ago, and the herd has grown a lot since I lived nearby (1999-2010 and 2012-2013).

I finally added an "official" GPS route to this hike. So, it's official. Now you can go hike it.
