I got an invite to join the 2 social misfits on a hike around Mazzy Peak. I met them at the the TH and we headed up everyone's favorite, Y Bar #44. I actually don't mind it as much as most, but to get the views on this one, you'll need to turn around. It's 5.75 miles and a 2300' climb to get to the Divide trail. It's rocky and steep in sections. We passed a couple of guys on mules on their way down. All 3 of us noted the Michelob Ultra Light drink holder attached to the cowboys saddle.

Now up on the Mazzy Divide/AZT we passed 3 different groups of women thru hikers, headed southbound doing the AZT.

I'd forgotten how good the views are on this section of the trail. Views west and the backside of Mazzy Peak.

After a lunch break, we headed down the Barnhardt Trail. With all the rain this monsoon season, this one is starting to get tight in sections again. I still never get tired of this trail. Going down is much nicer because you get to enjoys the views and geology more. The light and clouds enhanced it all.

A good hike with the misfits. Thanks for the invite Chums
