Central Arizona ground and pound action with a healthy foot and a new pup has me back out in the woods nearly everyday lately.
We’ve hit a lot of classic and rugged northern Tonto country, a day up in the snow further north up on the coke and some high desert trekking on the AZT in between.
At first I wasn’t sure if 10 month old Mellow was cut out for the mountain life as I could tell he wasn’t having it our first few hikes but he quickly proved me wrong and has already transformed from a terrain timid puppy into a formidable backcountry dog.
I’ve never seen home and the surrounding area so dry, tanks, “perennial water holes” and other riparian areas are truly in worse shape than I’ve ever seen in many years.
As much as I love the eerily warm and comfortable winter hiking weather here in Rim Country we certainly need some storm action and snowpack to fill some of the usual favorites.
