Day 2 of my Observatory Mesa exploration....

Left my house (near Tunnel Springs) to explore the "northern" part of Observatory Mesa, planning to drop down into Shultz Pass area/Coconino Estates. I climbed up to the Mars Hill junction and took a wrong turn onto a forest road heading west (can see in my gps route).

Corrected and got back on the trail heading north again...crossed a few more FR roads being careful to stay on the single track.

Interestingly, saw a retired co-worker and her husband on this trail, along with a few trail runners up from the homes!!!

I then dropped down into a SUPER NICE neighborhood and hit the "Karen Cooper Trail" (FUTS)...followed that into Coconino Estates where Val picked me up on Mead street. It was then off to Oreganos for some takeout!!

Decided to get out and shake off the Corona blues...the western RR Tunnel off of FUTS is VERY close to my new home. I headed under the tunnel, climbing steeply past the double water tanks on Observatory Mesa to Mars Hill Trail trisection...then headed east down to Thorpe Park...almost got nailed by a frisbee golfer. Solo urban hike. The weather was beautiful.

Pretty great day. Awesome weather. Not a quick hike up Cathedral with my buddy David and his three youngest (foster/adopted) boys...Levi 15, Elijah 12 and little Titus 4!!.

Right after the hard and brutally crowded crack climb, Elijah had had enough...so David stayed with him while I VERY slowly and safely followed up 4 year oldTitus finish...and he did. Fearless. Amazing. Filthy.

Followed up with food at Dave's Hot Dogs in Village of Oak Creek!

I had a Saturday open for a change and was looking for a moderate hike with my ol' acquaintances from HAZ.

Appeared John/Chumley/Boots and Linda (nice to meet you) were looking for a leg stretcher (Chumley had to work that mid afternoon during the ASU football drubbing) and invited me along for the stroll.

As I feared, the 20+ pounds that I had put on in the past few years had come to rear it's obese head (not that I was ever "fast" to begin with, but wow, 270lbs of burrito and bench press can SERIOUSLY slow you down).

I spent most of time sucking 02's and wondering where I (and everybody else) was as I had never really hiked this neck of Phx before. Kudos for John for occasionally hanging back and helping porky.

We went up a wash (name?) and then summitted one of the peaks for some great 360 views of Phoenix; this was definitely the highlight for me. (ok, ok, the real highlight was the break and granola bar we had back at the bottom of Hidden Valley).

We bypassed the "fat-mans slot" for obvious reasons and then enjoyed a cool stroll thru the tunnel...after that, it was a quick decent back to the vehicles (thanks again John for the company on the decent).

Once finished with the hike, I went back to the residence of 9L's Cats for some Ohio State football, BBQ steak, grilled onions and potatos...

After the great eats and a few Klondike Ice Cream chasers, I was feeling (and looking) back to my old self. :)

Chumley never mentioned the results of the "calf competition", so obviously I WON.

I'm grateful to have good friends here at HAZ. Thanks everyone.

Had some Flagstaff Thai food with chums the Friday before his Barack trip. After getting his typical chastisement for not hiking more, I told him I was headed to Kingman for the weekend and had this little hike in mind.

Initially thought I would hike by myself, but Val decided to join as well.
Was a perfect day for hiking...slight breeze, mild temps, empty trails.

We took took the right (north) fork of potato to get to the camp area and then took the Aspen Trail to the Dean Peak Overlook.

After a short rest, we scrambled west to the nested meadow with the "Peak Way" road sign, and then a final 4x4 climb to saddled top. I wanted to climb those last 20-30 feet to the tippy top of Apsen, but my age restrictions got the better of me and I wimped out.

We returned the same way we went up for a true out-n-back while collecting 2 plastic bottles and card-board soup container as trashy souvenirs.

Was a beautiful day with VERY beautiful company.

Took Val on this short but epic hike. Her first time hiking in Sedona.
Dark skies...heard the thunder on our way down, beat the lightning to the car.

Had heard and read good things about this little gem; it didn't disappoint. There are petroglyphs everywhere!!!

Easily accessible 2 miles of dirt road with my Honda Accord to the trailhead.

About a short 1/2 mile level hike to the mouth of the Canyon. Panels on both north and south sides. Few hundred yards in, you come to a 10' dryfall...it was easier for me to climb up and around the north side of the canyon bypassing this fall, but I didn't explore too much past that since Val stayed behind.

I spent most of my time climbing in and around looking for the rare find...next time (and I highly recommend) I will bring some binocs to search the varnished areas up and down the canyon before climbing up and finding nothing!!

As well, I'd like to hike all the way to Moss Spring...I'll be back to this area another day; hopefully, in February, it was PERFECT!!!

My third trip to the springs. Figured it would not be too crowded since it was a Monday, but still had 4-8 people at the springs. Kinda bummed about that.

Val and I returned back to parking lot only to find my Honda Accord with flat tire; 1 large screw thru the back tire tread. Popped on the doughnut and limped into Boulder City to get the flat fixed...Had pizza at Tony's in downtown BC.

Afterwards, Val and I drove down thru searchlight and into Laughlin for some R&R for her birthday.

Took my great buddy David Brittain on this short little jaunt up to the stone shelter and back.

This was very impromptu and unplanned hike for David and I. He was just looking for a small bit of exercise yet I was able to coax him into this short hike (after my morning lift) and it sure beats walking around a city park somewhere in Awahtukee; plus the bribe of a delicious burrito from "The Original Burrito Company" certainly helped his decision.

We grabbed a gallon of water at the local Circle K and started up around 10am. I took my shirt off to get some sun and ended up getting some burn. Wreaked my weekend, but I built some great memories and had some awesome male-bonding time with my Christian buddy!

I had discussed this hike with my gal(Val)the day before, and fervently described the level of difficulty of the Eldon Lookout hike. Undaunted, this Phoenician beauty accepted the challenge and now has difficulty climbing the stairs in her Chandler home.

Beautiful day to hike up to the tower (which was open for visitation I believe, (at the least the gate to the stairs was open).

Valerie and I also had my two oldest kids (Ty, 13, Bekah 16) with us and they did not seem to suffer the same effects of their more "experienced" authority figures.

Took the long way and completed Fatman's.

Hiking buddy took me to this little bump in the road. I had no idea it existed officially so I consulted the all-knowing hiking swami, Chumley.

Had I known this was 9L Peak, I would have passed. (just kidding John)

This Easter, after church, the kids and I decided to go out and enjoy this beautiful Flagstaff weather with a hike up Slate Mountain.

We had the entire trail to ourselves and enjoyed the gentle 1k elevation and switches to the top. Great views, with clear skies, of Peaks, Kendrick and Red Mountain.

Once at the top, we enjoyed some Subway that dad hauled up in the pack!!! Bekah found a nice horny toad (see pics).

On the way back, we stopped for some slushes at Circle K!!

Great day!

Took my gal Val out to Shoshone Point today.

Could NOT believe how crowded the Park was...incredible. I have never seen it this bad!! Simply to get IN, we had to wait about 30+ minutes in a line of cars that stretched out 1/2 mile back from the entrance. To pass the time, we kept track of all the different license plates we saw. I purchased my annual park pass and inquired about Shoshone busyness with the ranger. She said she heard there was a ceremony there today..."Great", I thought!

When we pulled into the Shoshone parking lot, I was pleasantly surprised that there were only two vehicles. I thought maybe the gig was already over.

Val and I packed up (we got sammies from Crystal Creek in Flagstaff) and started to walk the easy 1 mile to the rim. When we arrived, there was only one other small family and a solo hiker photographing...we walked out to the point and had the whole area to ourselves...sweet!

After walking back to the Ramada, I setup my double hammock between two pines right on the edge of the rim. We enjoyed our yummy lunch despite the fun & anxiousness of pushing the hammock's weight limit. As we were enjoying the great view and the turkey, avacado, bacon, we we heard several vehicles start to drive up the road. It was a wedding party. :( Thankfully, we were about done!! We packed up and walked past the bride, wishing her well.

Val noticed a small tarantula on the road back (see pic) and we got several pics. The little guy was quite agitated at us impeding his progress across the road.

We had time a couple of hours of daylight left, so we drove to the visitor center and lucked out with a parking spot...again, I could NOT BELIEVE how crowded the park was...OMGOSH!!! We walked around the visitor center and bookstore for a while and wanted to get into the Village, but the line for the blue bus was backed up at least 3 buses (45 minutes) long. So we jumped on the yaqui point bus and headed east (in separate bus seating locations of course) to Yaqui where we got to see some nice 5pm shawdows across the canyon!

Overall was a great day just to be in the Canyon area, but I can't imagine what it must have looked like at Bright Angel. :scared:

Beautiful day today. Took my girlfriend Valerie out for her first No. Arizona Hike, along with my daughter Cassie. Had some snacks at the end of the trail while Cassie defied death on the cliffs.

My first time on Bell Rock, taking my youngest (9) daughter Cassie with me. We made it to base of the sheer walls pretty easily and then did a little climb left to first little spire. Didn't want to take any chances with my spawn, so this was our final stop.

Would love to summit this thing someday.

The second hike of the day (after Bell Rock) and a first for my youngest daughter. My two older kids have loved this hike in the past, but Cassie had had enough with the Bell Rock climb which preempted a physical/mental meltdown about 3/4 the way up Cathedral.

I tried not to push too hard, so we sat for a decent amount of time as I "pumped her up" for the final push to the saddle. After a solid rest and some photos, we went back down to the car.

We followed this up with some Mexican food with in Cottonwood.

Fun day!!

Wow...my first time on this trail and I was very impressed. By far, a favorite Sedona hike. It's a bit too bad it's an out an back; some kind of loop through Fay Canyon would be pretty incredible!

I was visiting my GF in Cottonwood and had some time to hike while she worked.

I got a later start since I wanted to beat the heat; around 4pm - good decision. I started up the trail with little to no information about this hike (a bad habit of mine, that I need to correct). Thinking this 2.5 mile O/B would be rather easy, I started upwards thinking that the end of the trail was simply at the top of the first plateau. Thus, I finished the switchback section, then conveniently lost the trail wandering to views out the western cliffs. I was pretty (physically) satisfied that I had completed the entire hike, but kept curiously looking at the two looming peaks to the north and wondered..."maybe that's really the top of Bear Mountain". So I investigated further.

I headed off-trail across the plateau discovering faint trials and carins as I went...I eventually made it to the eastern side and found "the beaten path". Realizing I still had quite a hike in front of me (yet plenty of water), off I went towards the peaks.

About every 10-20 yeards, there are white painted diamonds on the sandstone. These made staying on the trail much easier.

I saw a (false) summit up head and was happy with the decision I made earlier to continue to these peaks; however, this trail was becoming increasingly tougher. I climbed to the top of this 1st summit, then saw yet another peak rearing it's ugly head.

I was completely alone on the trail until I hit the final summit. There I met a nice man named William and we chatted for a bit. (he mentioned the painted diamonds are new, maybe 6 months or so). He then showed me a curious discovery he made. On the tip of the southern outcropping over a steep edge, in the pockets of limestone looked what seemed to be ashes of some sorts (see photos). Perhaps a person or pet's ashes were spread here???

Made it back easily before dark. With steady difficulty and steepness of this trail, it really seemed more than 5 miles! They were hard earned miles for sure.

Overall, this is a fantastic hike. I highly recommend.

My girlfriend and I were visiting her Uncle near Parker Dam. He happens to work for the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California who are responsible for supplying So. California their water!! She enthusiastically described this special hike to me prior to our visit and I was very excited to hike as it meanders through a very bizarre desert/canyon landscape lush with palm trees, cascading fresh water waterfalls and fern covered canyon walls. It was indeed very beautiful and very much, a real desert oasis. We looped around and returned via a service road so I guesstimated at the total milage.

The hike starts at a very private yet popular recreational location for MWD employees, a place called "Ol' Swimming Hole". This quaint little pool's source is seepage runoff from the canyon directly behind the first MWD reservoir called Gene Wash. Hiking "upstream" about 1/2 a mile, this small slot winds through until you reach the tall reservoir dam which actually creates the Gene Wash Reservoir (basically a small lake pumped out of Lake Havasu). This hike is located on private property owned by the MWD. We were only able to access this area with her Uncle and his pass code; it's a very high security area. (My understanding is the water from Gene Wash Reservoir water is then pumped upwards again into the larger Copper Basin Reservoir where it awaits its final journey to the aqueduct's and finally to the faucets and toilets of Southern California).

The hike basically clamours over large boulders and thick tropical brush. It also required wading through some mucky pools until you reach a junction with a service road very near the dam. From there, you can walk about 100 yards to the base of the reservoir (I could have climbed the long ladder to the top of the reservoir had my Cojones been a bit larger)...This whole area was frickin' amazing with all the seepage from the side canyon creating trickling waterfalls down the length of this final slot. Was pretty amazing.

After exploring the dam area, we took the service road UP and then back around to the swimming hole and enjoyed some adult beverages.

Was a very interesting hike and a magnificent place to hang out and explore. I'm glad I got to share it here on HAZ.
