I'm guessing LindaAnn heard somewhere that I was a 'peakbagger' so she asked me to join her on this little hike. I accepted as I've wanted to meet her in person for some time. I did correct her by letting her know I was a member of HikeArizona, not ClimbArizona. She then asked if I had a problem with Denny coming along. I said "That's a great idea as you'll probably need some extra help dragging my carcass down off the peak."

We got an early start and the wind was blowing cold. The cold combined with my hypoxia made it feel like a bonafide climb. :) The nonstop AEG must have kicked their butt as they were always stopping for air at the exact same time I was. :-k

All kidding aside, this was a tough workout hike for me and just a stroll for them. Denny calls himself the "Tortoise Hiker" but that man is a absolute gazelle on the trails.

We had a mediocre lunch at Anita's in Wickenburg afterwards as the Horseshoe Cafe had closed early due to staffing issues. :cry: It was great to finally meet both Linda and Denny. They are both very nice people like HAZ folks tend to be. Thanks for the invite and let's do it again sometime.
