conditions looked perfect for a dayhike of azt passage #4 saturday
utilized ken's shuttle service again, setting out from patagona around 0730
chilly temps, but soon enough shed layers on the uphill road walk
the road wasn't that bad, good scenery and smooth sailing to start with
once the road narrowed and dropped into temporal gulch, it was more interesting
took a break around the ten mile point
solid uphill to the saddle on walker canyon trail, then a welcome descent on chinaman trail
these were very nice trails, and we enjoyed the pine trees and views of wrightson up close
passed bear spring, where john filtered a liter and we took another break
eventually the terrain changed back to grasslands, with interesting scenery along gardner canyon
passed tunnel spring and the beginning of the pipeline
finished up around 1620
i was about a quart low at this point and it took me awhile to rehydrate - note to self :?
good hike, especially the half on actual trails
it's been fun doing these passages with john, and hopefully one more before i get busy at work in december
thanks, lp!
