Hiked up Spencer with JJ. Good 5G at the top from Page even on my cheapie prepaid Verizon, which is signal throttled vs standard plans.

Parted ways with JJ and hiked down to the trailhead. I jumped in the jjiii rocket and respectively weaved through the hogans up to Horseshoe Bend. Driving around in dad's 911 was a riot as a kid but the jjiii has exceptional acceleration vs that 80s toy.

As JJ described, entering Horseshoe Bend is like waiting in one of the three lines at emissions. I don't follow 9aLtrails so I had no clue that 4,000 people visit here on average daily.

Piestewa was the busiest inner-city trail a decade ago but that's half the "explorers" vs the now mighty Horseshoe Bend. The Conga line here is slower, it's a paved walk and not one hello Joe.

JJ's plan was to hike to the flip side peninsula so I could get a photo of him ~0.6 mi across. Echos carried across better than I would have expected but boy howdy was he tiny.

The AEG on Horseshoe is pathetic but cool to experience once.
