Did the Barnhardt Trail with a large group from Arizona Hikers. We all met at the McDonalds at Shea and Beeline, and condensed the passenger to vehicle ratios. The group included, in no particular order: Daddee, GTG, PaintingAZ, Mike1, Mike2, Kristin, Jamesblond, Grouphiker, DennisBench, Hooli and myself. The trip was astounding. The best way to describe the drive to the trailhead from the highway: a carpet of green accented with bunches of yellow flowers. Off in the distance one could see the Mogollon Rim bright with snow and the peaks in the Mazatzals also were sporting the white stuff. We took the obligatory photos at the trailhead and proceeded up the trail. Before we arrived at the main waterfall we made quite a few stops just to take in the unbelievable beauty of what we were in the midst of. The surrounding terrain was most assuredly alive and green, lacking all of the attributes of our recent drought. The sound of rushing and falling water could be heard throughout the trek and in many areas the trail itself had become a small stream, but it was not too hard to navigate alongside or over. When we made it to the waterfall the adrenaline was beginning to pump. You could here the falling water back through the rocks that concealed it; beckoning one to come in and breath the cool damp air circulating in the chambers below. Once there, the reasons for such an adventure became blatantly clear. It is what I refer to as a "spoonful". Some refer to it as a "Mountain Top Experience". Whatever you want to call it, you can only experience it by being there. The hike up the rest of the canyon was anticlimactic except for the fun of hiking a little in the snow and having a nice peaceful lunch in a nice stand of Ponderosas. There was a mild snowball skirmish between DennisBench, Daddee, Kristin and JamesBlond; not sure who won but noticed some wet apparel amongst the participants. The trek downward was not so good. As the group stopped at a point on the trail to observe something, GTG said he thought he heard someone yelling. We were all quiet listening and GTG yelled, "HELLO!" Almost instantly we heard the reply, "Help!" We turned and headed back up the trail, where after a short distance we found Grouphiker sitting in the middle of the trail. She had fallen and hit her head on a rock; face first. She had a nasty gash in her upper lip, that once cleaned had the appearance of going all the way through and was already swollen. She also had an abraision on her right thigh. At this point the group became a medical emergency team and I think we used items from three or four first-aid packages. I was the hands that administered the treatment as those about me gave very good instructions and made excellent recommendations. The first thing we did was have her answer some questions. She seemed to have her wits about her and pupils seemed normal. We then cleansed the wound and applied antisceptic, added a butterfly bandage and taped it down with a long strip of tape. After a short wait Grouphiker assured us that she could make the trek down. Jamesblond stayed close to her on the way down. Later in the evening Grouphiker called me as she drove home from the hospital to tell me she was OK and would be getting the stitches out on Friday. Outside of the emergency, this was an outstanding trip. I was most impressed the way the group handled the situation and how prepared they all were.

CCV Group hike with Karen, Colleen, Sarah and Emily. Not too Many wild fowers yet, but lots and lots of green. We did this as an in and out totaling a little over 4 miles. You can do it as a shuttle if you combine it with the Garfias Wash Trailhead. I would loved to have done a little more hiking into the canyon, but think it would have been too much for Sarah and Emily. The shuttle would total about 9 miles, mostly through the Garfias Canyon. The Spring Valley Trail has gorgeous views of the foothills of the Bradshaws, Pleasant Lake and the rugged volcanic terrain around the Hells Canyon Wilderness area. The official Spring Valley Trail ends at a drainage into the Gafias Canyon, but the trail continues to The Garfias Wash Trailhead. I'll have to go back and check it out some winter day. Will write a full summary for the Spring Valley Trail sometime in the future when I have sufficient GPS data to do so. Great Day, Great Partners, Great Hike! Will post pictures a little later.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Did this in reverse order from Canyon to Peralta on the 25th of January, 2003

This was, simply stated, an awesome hike. The weather was perfect, the company was excellent, the panoramas were awe inspiring, the planning was well done and I'm thinking I would like to do it again. I very much enjoyed meeting and hiking with all of you that I hadn't hiked with before. The group at the Boulder Canyon trailhead was: GTG, CK1, Pat, Tommy B, AzHiker96, Grouphiker, Kurthzone.

GTG, thanks for putting this one together for us. Please post some of your pics and I will post some of mine.

The beginning was not auspicious. Grouphiker decided to impress us with cactus wrestling right at the Boulder Canyon Trailhead. The pricklypear won. This was a very tough fall, as evidenced by the many abraisions, numerous cactus barbs and a knot on the head. ck1, Pat and azhiker96 were first on the scene to wash away some dirt and remove a prickly infested jacket and gloves. GTG whipped out some tweezers and ck1 began removing the pesky needles. We all were thinking to ourselves about the seriousness of injuries, but much to the amazement of all, Grouphiker said she wanted to do the hike. She was a little slow at first but began to pick up as we moved along. By the time we had met with the others somewhere near First Water and had lunch and Ibuprofen, she was at the front of the pack and did fine for the remainder of the trek. I'll bet she has a headache today though.

As we moved toward Fremont Saddle, we met up with fellow Arizona hikers CatValet and Catvalet2, Sandy J and Hopalong. We ate lunch, socialized and GTG took a couple group pictures of us and then one of our feet; something to look forward to I'm sure. Off on the trail again we went.

As we hiked, GTG told me a story of Ranger Lou and Orange Peel Pass. Do you all know where this is in the Supes? Anyway, this story got started when I pickep up an orange peel that Grouphiker had inadvertently dropped. Have you ever noticed that as you move further and further away from a trailhead that the plastic bottles and gum wrappers become proportionately less visible? Sure enough, as we got almost to Fremont Saddle, off to the side of the trail was an entire orange worth of peel.

In spite of this, when I got to Fremont Saddle and looked off to the southeast and then back to the terrain we had traversed, I had a sense of accomplishment that can only be understood by those who are truly appreciative of what we have been given in life; starting with the senses and followed by what they perceive. The descent to the Peralta Trailhead was one of reflection of a wonderful day and anticipation of Elviras in AJ.

Back to Canyon Lake for vehicles and then on to Elviras; enjoyed excellent Mex and interesting Geronimo history told by CatValet. Was that guys name Willie Free or Freed or what? I would like to read more on the subject.

This was a great day in my life. Thanks to all of you who were a part of it.

BTW, if anyone wants to know the correct way to adjust a Camelbak bladder with a trekking pole please let me know. I have mastered the technique.

Nice hike with the group from CCV, which included Darleen, Karen, Rob and Jake. We could see snow on the mtns in the distance. The hike started off cold, but we were all well layered and did a peeling before the end. Took some pics which I will post later, including one of a red bird sitting on a cactus, however, you can't really tell it's a bird. Wish I had a large telephoto. Will do the trail again with my kids. I think it's a good one for them.

Take another off the wish list. This was a great hike/climb and a perfect day to do it. Got a late start because I went to a Breakfast for the Arts @ Cactus High School where daughter Briana was singing with Girls Ensemble and exhibiting photographs and drawings. So the late start was well worth it. Anyway I hit the trailhead at 10:45 and reached the summit at 12:20, where I met up with a group of government scientists and a couple of their wives. One of the guys was aquainted with Fritski. Used to hike the Supes with him. I scribbled a few sentences in the nice new red hike log that ck1 recently put in the mail box up there and took a few pictures from there. Down below to the east I could see the small Town of Superior, where my mom and dad met at Superior High School. Off to the northwest I could see the stretch of land where my dad's family lived back in the 30's. Picketpost was one of his favorite hangouts when he was a kid. From the mailbox at the summit I took a side trip with the scientists over to the Flag, which is quite large and can be seen from the trailhead parking lot. Headed down and realized at one point that I probably shouldn't have attempted this hike alone. I fell; not a bad fall but made me think, what if. This is great hike/climb. I say climb because there are parts where you are climbing; a lot more scrambling than I had anticipated, but that is good and now I know I won't include this as a posssible day hike for the Church Group I hike with. I don't believe the inexperienced hiker would fair well with this one. Ascended on the north trail and descended the south as reccomended by Teva. Got home to Peoria in time to get ready for the Suns game against the Pacers. Suns kicked ass. YESSS!!!! Great second row seats next to the Suns bench. Germaine O'neil is one good power forward, but oh well.

This is one of those hikes that has been hanging out on my wish list for some time. The day was perfect for the hike as a cold front passed through and offered occaisional cloud cover and some sweat cooling wind along the highpoints and ridgelines. Did the hike with GTG, AZHIKER96 and others including my daughter Candice who at times just couldn't help herself and would run (she runs cross country for Cactus High School.) Before we even got to the trailhead we saw a tarantula crossing the road. So we all gathered round and visisted for awhile and he (according to GTG it was a male) went on his way. On the trail we met up with quite a few of the Tarantulas enemy, the wasp. These were the big red and black variety and were most prominent around standing pools of water that lay in the upper portions of Ford Canyon. We ate lunch at the dam and came back via Willow Springs and Mesquite Canyon, where we checked out all the relics at Willow Springs. Good hike, great hiking conditions and excellent hiking partners. :wink:

Excellent views and excellent color, but way too crowded for my tastes. Had to rescue Sarah from the big angled rock midway through the hike. Slid down the rock on my butt and got pants seat all red. Oh well! Had lunch at the turn-around point. Emily fell in the water(what's new). Fortunately had some spare clothes. Emily's elbow became dislocated on the ride home when a young boy pulled on her arm. Later on in the evening I restrained her(cause she was screaming and kicking) and Janet put the elbow back in location. I'm sure this is a genetic thing with my girls and we learned some time back from the pediatrician how to put the elbow back.

The up portion of the recent Grand Canyon Excursion. More people on the trail and a few speed hikers with no regard for trail etiquette.

This was the down portion of the GTG organized Canyon backpacking extravaganza. All I can say is it was an awesome adventure. Many things to see: breath taking vistas, wild life, tame life, beautiful lighting from the clouds casting shadows on a no haze day as a storm passed, a friendly raven, fossils, The GE team group, Zoraster, and of course the always trecherous MULE (Mule Urine Lake Evasion). Came back up Bright Angel after spending the night at Bright Angel Campgrounds. The last time I was in that spot was 1968. There have been quite a few changes. For one, there wasn't one other camper there then. I was all alone.

This was GTGs modified hike. I'm not really sure where we went, there were a few shortcuts along the way. I'll have to do this a few more times with him before I get it. Enjoyed the conversations with GTG and Olesma. Supposed to do it next week as well. I think this hike deserves it's own summary. It's definately and up-and-downer.

Did this last night in the moonlight with a group from church (CCV). My two youngest daughters Sarah and Emily came along. There were other kids their ages which made it all the more fun for them. Emily got a little hyper about wanting to use the flashlight, but managed to tame down after using it for two minutes. Then she had to pee and then she wanted to know if I would carry her on my shoulders, which I did for the last 200ft of trail. (note to self: don't ask Emily along on any long hikes) Also on the hike was a manager of a Popular Outdoor Outfitters. By the end of the hike we were calling him "Gear Man." He had this incredible LED Headlamp that formed what I would call perfect illumination on the trail in front of him. I'm working on a discount...

Twice around the loop today; once with the CCV Group and again with Sarah cause she was mad when I got home and I hadn't woke her to go on the first hike. No Velvet Mites out today, but did find some more bullet fragments.

Hiked the H3 trail in Thunderbird park this morning in the rain. Lots of washed out areas on the trail and lots of standing water and mud from yesterday. This was my first hike using newly acquired trekking poles and the conditions made for a good test. I have to say I really noticed the difference right away. I do the loop clockwise, which means I ascend a more gradual grade to the top and descend in a series of steeper switchbacks. I set the length of the poles shorter going up and longer descending. I'm not so sure I won't decide on a universal length for more gradual ascents and descents. Wow, what a difference though. I sort of felt like I was cheating or something; more balance, less weight shift, less energy expended in ground covered. I'm of the mindset that "walkers" are for old folks. Guess I'm old now. Something I discovered right away was that if you have the poles attached to your wrists and you plant the pole and it sticks quite a ways into the mud, it is going to stay and so are you. So if it felt at all like it was penetrating I brought it back right away. Found some interesting things on the trail. There were many little bright red bugs that looked like tics, but they were extremely bright red with white legs. Didn't get a real close look at them cause I had the wrong eyeware on. I wonder if the rain brought them out? Also found quite a few spent rounds of ammunition: brass casing, various shaped led bullets, and copper jackets. I'm not surprised though, I remember there was a shooting range in the area back in the 50's and going there with my dad, although it was on the other side of the mountain and at the bottom. I'm sure there was a lot of shooting going on all over in the area because back then that was way out of the city. Anyway I'm sure the recent rain had just exposed them. But if I found that many just in a small stretch on the north side of the mountain, the whole area is probably full of bullets.

Hiked with CCV group. No Sarah along this time. The big carpenter bee that was buzzing us last time was there again. This time he was harassing a woman that we could hear up the trail screaming like GodZilla was on the other side of the ridge. :lol:

This was my first hike with the hiking group from CCV. This days group consisted of Darleen, Sania, Kathy and Ramone. Nice little hike; nothing too rigourous. We started at 6:10AM. Quite a few hikers on the trail. Nice view of the homes along the mountain preserve. Three of the group have only been in Arizona for less than two years, so they had lots of questions about the local history and about Arizona in general. I took some photos and will submit them later.

Hit the trail at 6:50PM with 9 yr old daughter Sarah. Very very excellent sunset. I'm just amazed by the beauty of that view at that time of evening; the city lights glittering along towards vanishing points to that last bit of cerulean sky and orange clouds fading to pink and gray. The sphericalness of the atmosphere is so obvious during that time of day and from that perspective. I was a bit surprised by the number of hikers headed up as we neared the bottom. It was dark!

Can't rmember what time we finished so this time is not accurate. Had a great time getting to know other HAZ members: Cakewalk(initiated hike), azhiker96, azscrapper, Doug, GTG, bbmcritt. Great view of Soutwest Phoenix and the area west of South Mountain toward the Estrellas. Working back to the trailhead was good.
