I didn't realize it was a 2-mi hike from the actual trailhead. This trail was taken from down by the fall somewhere. So I decided to make my own loop out of it. I hiked up Aztec and down the dirt road for a bit. Turn left onto a 4x4 road towards the ranch and found Murray trail. I took this down to Ridgeline and then up Moody trail. it was pretty out there but the trail was thick and everything had thorns. Lots of bear sign up there too 🐻

So, apparently this trail is closes? I wasn't sure till we finished. I couldn't imagine why. I know the ranch is closed. The amount of wildlife we saw in this candy was incredible. We saw deer, turkey, skunk, mearns, fish, coati's, and lion tracks. That turkey was following us around. She probably got 5 feet from my brother. The deer was eating right next to her before we showed up. The skunk was foraging it didn't even hear us walk up on it. Once it finally saw us it postured and even did a mini charge. It's pretty cool. Then it just walked off. At the end of the hike we came up on a pack of coati's. They were climbing their trees like a bunch of monkeys. Guess it's the closest thing we'll ever have the monkeys. It was a pretty successful adventure in my books.

Lots of people! It was a nice day to swim in the cold water. We parked at second water, hiked down to the waterfall and hit the waterwheel parking lot in the way back making for a decent loop. The boys loves swimming here.

This hike was a lot of fun but it gets very tight for quite a ways. By the time we got done with this it felt like we did a 20 mile hike. The adults, not the kids. Lol. there's approximately six repels that you have to do and they're all pretty twisty. Your ropes get beat up pulling them through on this one. We didn't run into any water in the canyon, which is probably a good thing. It was so tight that you had to walk like a ballerina with your feet out away from each other and our backpacks on our heads. This got a very tiring but it was fun. I think the longest repel is about 30 ft.

There were so many people out memorial weekend. This place was quite busy but it was still enjoyable. We did this hike in reverse order. I think I like the better that way because we were climbing up the ropes versus down the ropes. There were a few swim tours and I was pretty fun. The water was quite cold but it felt good. The kids did good and loved the hike.

52 miles in 49 hours hiking the Arizona Trail sections 1, 2, and 3. Starting in the Mexican border and to Patagonia where my motorcycle is waiting for me. Thanks Logan for the shuttle ride. AZT 2 has been rerouted and my map has the updated cords.

On day one I started at the Mexican border and followed the ridge line of the huachucas until I dropped down to Parker canyon lake.
Day two was in the hills and a really long hard day. I was running low on water and found this cattle pond. I really didn't want to get water there but I haven't seen water for a while. I attempted to get water but the mud was too deep. I tried stepping on some drag marks thinking they might be more sturdy but I couldn't do it. I started hiking down the canyon and saw what made the drag marks. It was a dead cow. Maybe a lion dragged it out of there. So glad I didn't drink that water.
Half day three was the easiest and pretty uneventful except I think I found a meteorite 🤞
I saw a kit fox, mearns quail, cous, and a Gould Turkey. Not one snake until I got home and there was one in my driveway.

I was surprised how much I enjoyed this hike. It was really pretty neat back there. Unfortunately I just missed a Gila monster and a rattlesnake. I only ran into four people in the trail so that was pretty good. everybody's always doing a great job at social distancing.

I was surprised to run into four people on Y bar trail, but after that I didn't see anybody until I got back on to barnhart. Then it was a bit too much. People like crazy. Even with all the people, just about everybody did a good job with social distancing. Mine has some down trees Y bar wasn't pretty good condition. There was lots of water everywhere.

Can I started off by going counter-clockwise from Woodbury. I think it was a good way to go, minus climbing up Rogers canyon. I think that would have been easier going downhill. There is plenty of water where everywhere. I got the Angels basin, I thought I missed the ruins. I started climbing up and out Rogers canyon and there they were. I would say they are hard to miss. I ran into a rather large mountain lion track oh, but I wasn't worried. There was a lot of burn sign turn that recent fire, but I think it's coming back pretty quick. I just wish that it burned up more of that damn cat claw

Nice easy stroll up West Fork with the kids. We almost make it to the end, but had to turn back because one of the boys fell through the ice; three times. The ice waterfalls were pretty and we got to witness a small rock slice from one of the cliffs.

This was a great hike we did back in June. We started out the day in Death Valley at -200 feet. We drove up to Onion Valley & hiked Kearsarge Pass, taking a north to south route. That 11k feet of elevation kicked our a$$. We camped above 10k feet every night, but most of the time we were over 11k. The snow as deep even this late in the year. We spent the mornings with our crampons on and the evenings postholing and wishing we has snowshoes or skis. We camped at just on the west side of Kearsarge the first night. We thought we could make it over Forester the second night, but with a lack of trails and the postholing, we had to camp at the base of it and hit it in the morning. We were able to find two rock outcroppings in the middle of all the snow to make camp. The snow/ice was way too rough to camp in. It was full of these big holes caused by the slow snow melt. Making it up Forester Pass wasn't too too bad. The south side of Forster other the other hand was definitely sketchy. We didn't have ice axes either. Once pass the bad sections it was a fun hike down. We were able to slide down half of the mountain on our butts. We were on snow and ice almost the whole way from Kearsarge to forester, minus some great walking down inthe valley. After forester we had another mile of ice. That was pretty easy going because it was at a slight decline. There was only one or two large snow fields after that. Now came the river crossing. The first crossing at Tyndall we had to get wet. There was no way around it. We heard that there was a chance to jump across down by the ranger station, but we didn't bother. Every single water crossing before and after this one, we were able to find a way across. This was usually accomplished by a down tree. On the slippery trees we used our crampons. What a great idea! Now we are finally covering some ground. We only did about 10 miles that second day, but now we are clocking around 25. With being so far behind our schedule we had to skip summiting Whitney. We heard of people getting up at 4am to do so. The ice is better than the slush I suppose. As far as wildlife, we saw deer and pikas north of Forster and more marmet than I've ever seen in my life south of it. I believe we made camp at Wallace Creek the third night. We met several people telling us that they met a fair amount of PCT'er bypassing Forester. The last night we camped just north of Cottonwood pass and made for a somewhat early high out. I have to say that the one thing about hiking against the flow of PCT'ers was how many of them we got to meet and exchange information with. This was a tough hike with no doubt, but I had a great time. Hopefully next time, there will be a lot less snow. If there isn't, I'm bringing snow shoes.

It was a great hike up flatiron for new years eve. It was quite soggy, but so beautiful at the top. The visibility was down to 30 yards, but it was definitely worth it. There were a couple backpacker's trying to go up there for the fireworks I think. Neither one of them made it. LOL. I'm sure they wouldn't have seen much.

I'm glad I made it up to the top of Elbert. Somewhere after 12,000 ft I skirted get elevation sickness. I tried drinking more water and as soon as I got to the top I ran out.🤦‍♂️ There is no water to be had on that trail except for the very beginning, but I made it back just fine. Who is an amazing hike with beautiful scenery and lots of pikas playing around.

We started our hike at the KP campground around noon. Once we pulled out of the creek the trail started to disappear. There was no more water till we got to the bottom. It was roughly 3-4 miles of almost non-existent trail, 5 foot tall grass, down trees, thorny bushes and anklerolling rocks. That's a geological term. Look it up :lol:. We were lucky enough to have a dog with us that did an excellent job of finding the trail. We managed to make camp in this area, but I wouldn't recommend it. Once you hit the the boundary fence, it gets much better. After passing the road/trailhead, we hit Grant Creek trail. FYI, there is no sign for this tail. The trail conditions were much better. Down here I caught a small Apache Trout and saw a bunch of deer. We pulled up and out of the canyon and camped the second night at White Oak Springs. It was a nice spot with plenty of water. I recommend filling up here. We only saw water one more place after this. There were a lot of down trees on most of the trails. Depending on the conditions of Foote, it might be a better option for a loop.

It was a great day for a summit even though it was cold and crazy windy. There is some ice on the trail, but no need for special gear.

I didn't make it to the top as I hurt my foot. I guess it's time to get some heavy duty trail runners.

I don't usually post my SoMo hikes on here, as I am on the mountain twice a week during the winter. I did this hike, but hit National, then came down Lost Mine and back to the parking lot. It made for a nice after work loop. This also happened to be the best I've done going up Pyramid.

It was kinda warm going up Peralta, but a nice hike. There is very little water to be had. There was a bush right off of the trail that rattled just like a rattlesnake. That was the first time I got scared on this trip 🙄.

I got a late start to this hike, around 11. I headed down the canyon and it was thick with locust trees. At the bottom of the canyon I arrived at 10+ foot drop off. I was able to get down without a rope, but it was a little tricky. The rest of the hike was a lot of fun bolder hopping and swimming. I saw a bear cub and heard the momma. I'm not sure where they went, but I followed the down the canyon for at least a half hour, hearing a growl every 10 minutes. Shortly after that, the sky stated to turn. Being that I am solo, there is a mamma best and cub, the monsoons, and I still had to ride my bike out, I decided to cut the hike short and climb out of the canyon. I found some deer and elk sign, so I tried to follow their path. That didn't happen! I ended up doing a little rock climbing and cactus grabbing, but I make it out and found a road to follow back. It was an awesome hike and I will definitely come back.
