JJ, Nick, and I were supposed to do this hike together on 3/24/13 but Nick got sick the night before. Eight years later, we were on. We met Nick along I-10 and all took the JJ-mobile to the trailhead. The new and improved JJ drove!
The first couple miles of this hike are pretty easy, then you have to work to get up top. The summit has been cleaned up. The only elephants were in the ammo box. Fun hike/scramble up with great views.
On the return we decided to check out the Quantrell Mine. Pretty cool but not as much to explore as we were hoping for.
Great to hike with Nick again and JJ per usual. :)

1st trip
Been thinking about this segment for quite a few years. Logistical nightmare. Came up with the idea of getting a shuttle ride at both ends. JJ and Janie volunteered to drive us to Rogers Trough and pick us up at Roosevelt Lake. Thanks to both of you!
JJ hiked with us for a few miles from Rogers Trough TH then had to return home to take care of some business.
This is a long tough segment, but rewarding in the end. We pushed hard the first day and made it to Cottonwood Spring just as it was getting dark. We found a pretty decent campsite, then set up camp and ate in the dark. Beautiful breezy evening.
Took our time breaking camp in the morning as we had plenty of time to only hike about 8 miles. The Cottonwood Creek area is really pretty with water access in numerous places. The cottonwoods and sycamores have new bright green leaves.
The final stretch has more AEG than anticipated and temps were rising. We pushed through and finished off the hike by working our way down to the lake for a refreshing dip.
Great trip. Thanks Kelly! :)

Valiant effort by the Beavers in the second half. Couldn't hold it together the last 3 minutes to pull out a win. Only the second #12 seed to ever make it this far in the tournament. Picked to finish last in the pac-12. Quite a year! :)

trekkin gecko invited me to hike as long as she was home by 11:10 to watch her team play in the ncaa tourney. We got started up Geronimo at first light, went down Corona de Loma, then back up Old Man's trail.
Only saw 2 people the first 3/4 of the hike. Cool temps and a breeze made for excellent conditions. Trails are in good shape, though parts of Old Man's are loose and rocky as always. Slim pickin's on the wildflowers.
Tasty breakfast after the hike included 3 egg huevos rancheros with green chili verde sauce, hash browns, beans, rice, and some of Kelly's pancakes.
Excellent day. Thanks Kelly. :)

Last week we talked about this hike, then things worked out the night before so we were on. First time in the Tortolitas for both of us. Nice trails, good scenery, great weather. No complaints.
We didn't see anybody the first 3/4 of the hike then more and more people as we approached the trailhead as expected. Hiked through a few miles of burn. Not too depressing. Seems like it will recover in a few years. Saw just a few wildflowers.
Fun hike. Thanks Kelly. :)

Hit Two Peaks and "Devastator west". Ran into Denny on Mormon Loop. Had a nice chat. Quite a bit warmer than it has been. Still lots of people out hiking and biking. Mad house of cars trying to find a spot to park as I was leaving. :)
