Nice Labor Day at Fossil Springs. Unlike what it has become, there were only a 5-6 other people down there, even on this big holiday. A nice day.

We shuttled a car to the bottom, so we hiked down #18, spent the day at the dam, and then hiked down the old flume road rather than hiking back up and out. Which is probably good considering the number of beers we drank all afternoon ;)

Another cool trip up north exploring the area around Chevelon as well as a stop at Woods Canyon to remind me why I hate it so much.

Nice trip with a big group. A couple of cameras contributed, the disposable waterproof one looks like it took photos in the 1950s!

Spent a nice Saturday doing the Groom Creek Loop. Did it counter-clockwise and really enjoyed the couple miles of traverse along the ridge at the top.

This was a training hike for our upcoming backpacking trip to Supai. As it turns out, four of us went this day, and one was my friend John's girlfriend Betty. John wasn't able to go.

The hike was too much for Betty, who either got ridiculous blisters, twisted her ankle, or some combination of the two, but as a result had to skip out on the Supai trip a couple of weeks later.

I've never lived that down since John was going to propose to her under Havasu Falls, and instead had to ask her at Burger King in Mesa or something just about as romantic (compared to Havasu Falls anyway).

In the end it didn't really matter. They're divorced now anyway. Maybe it was an omen?

First ever trip up to Horton Springs. You'd think they hadn't invented photography from the quality of the film scans I was able to retrieve!

One of our early visits to Alderwood. As always, a great old skool campsite that you can't get to anymore. But the hiking and swimming is still awesome.

Outstanding weekend in the White Mountains. Camped below Buffalo Crossing, right on the river.

My first real off-trail adventure involved dragging a bunch of friends from our car-camping spot above Oak Creek Canyon down in search of water in the West Fork. We never did make it all the way down. The complaints mounted and I relented. Back up to the cars and beer. Oh well!

I served as the shuttle driver for a handful of friends who spent the day flying off Oatman Mtn near Gila Bend.

One guy had natural talent, and could ride the wind endlessly like a bird. For others it was more of a challenge, struggling to find the thermals, and ultimately being forced to retreat to the LZ sooner than desired.

A great day!

An annual camping trip at the end of July. This one at Kinnikinick Lake. It was Kai's first camping trip, as an 8-week old puppy. It was an introduction to a lifetime of outdoor adventures for him and me together.

Back in the day, I was on a quest to find swimming holes in AZ. This one came up in a book and I decided to check it out. I don't remember the exact date, but it looks like a hot, pre-monsoon summer shot to me. Needless to say, we didn't do any swimming on this trip! :(

Nice weekend in the Durango area. Mountain biking at Purgatory (no chairlifts used!) and a nice drive and hike up Miller Mountain/Endlich Mesa northeast of the city.

First trip to Supai. Always a trendsetter, the photos show style that simply can't be beat. Nobody better tag "vintage hikers" [-X
