Headed out to Chilson Camp with 9L and Lily. It was a beautiful day and there was still a good bit of snow left. It was just enough to add a little fun but not so much our feet were ever wet. Lily loves snow. We stopped by Chilson Spring on the way. There was about 6-8 inches in the spring box. We had lunch at Chilson Camp and carried out some empty water jugs.

Perfect day. Just me and Lily. We made really great time and were back to the car by 2pm.

Great hike and picnic in the La Barge Box. Started at first water and crossed over Battleship Saddle from Boulder Canyon.

We decided we wanted to do a backpack this weekend but didn't really feel like putting together any plans. Bear Saddle is one of my favorite spots to camp so that would work. I headed up the Y-bar with 9L and Lily. We made camp pretty early and Karl met us a few hours later. It got pretty chilly and windy at night. I was a little colder than I like to be but I think I packed enough stuff to keep Lily tolerably warm all night-- she'll never appreciate me packing it all out there. We took the long way back on Sunday looping around Mazzie Peak and then down the Barnhardt. It was pretty cool all day and we kept moving pretty good-- 4.5 hrs to the trailhead including breaks.

It was pretty quiet on the trails all weekend. The only people we saw were some attempting a Mazzie Peak Summit in the distance and then one pair on Barnhardt.

We expected a bushwacky hell and were surprised with a pleasant day in the Supes. The dogs held up great and even had some water to cool off in near the end of the hike. It was great to hit a couple new trails.

We got an early start and bagged this pretty quick. I had some cooking to do this afternoon before Turkey Day stuff so we didn't waste too much time. It got a little warm on the way out but nothing too unpleasant. This was my first Battleship summit in a few years but my 15th total! It was nice to be back on that mountain. Its cairned pretty heavily now so unfortunately most of the route finding fun is gone. Happy Thanksgiving!

Hiked with the group out to the Ely Anderson junction. Lily's recovery time still isn't up to par since being sick earlier this year. She seemed to be dragging after the hike the day before and I knew it was going to get warm so we turned around here and left the group.

Nice early hike with 9L and Lily. Only saw a group of backpackers and a couple on horseback.

I headed out this morning with 9L, a couple other friends, and a pack of dogs. The plan was for an easy late start dog day in East Webber Creek. It'd been a few years since I'd hike back there. I unfortunately got a flat about 1.5 miles in on the Control Road. The two inch gash at the base of the sidewall was an immediate indication that this tire was headed for the land fill. I'd been telling myself for a few months that I needed to replace my 15 year old spare and as I lowered the ancient half-inflated tire down from the undercarriage, I was really wishing I had done that. Luckily we weren't that far down the dirt and I knew there was a filling station right up the street so I'd be able to fully inflate the spare.

After dealing with all that, we decided that doing a hike from the Pine TH would be smarter in case my old spare didn't hold air. We had a pleasant day with the dogs and took the Donahue up Milk Ranch Point. We had a late lunch at THAT Brewery before we headed back. My shitty old tire seemed to be holding pressure but I stopped in Payson and bought a compressor for the long drive home just to be safe. It felt like a long day but it was still a nice one.

Went to my ghetto Pepboys this morning to replace my tire and the spare. I didn't have road hazard on my tires but they cut me a huge deal since I'd just bought that set in May. I walked out the door paying less than half what I expected to pay for the whole shebang. Those guys rule.

We weren't exactly sure what we were going to do today but wanted to hit Peeley as a start. Neither had hit that summit before. We had clear skies and great views. We came back down and spent a little more time on the Divide. I've never been on that section. I'd love to backpack out to Bear Saddle from that end now.

Didn't see too much new territory but spent a pleasant day in one of my favorite quiet areas. I took a couple dog park buddies and their corresponding dogs along for the day. I was hoping the road that splits from 415 just north of 300 would take us all the way to where I wanted to drop into the north east canyon from but that sucker gets swallowed up almost immediately. I ended up driving about halfway up 415 and parking. Then we just hiked cross-country to the drop-in spot. We hiked to canyon bottom to Beaver Canyon and then basically across and up to Beaver Turkey Ridge. From there we hiked the road that hugs the high perimeter until we came back down to Turkey Crossing. I was surprised that this road is followable the entire way as 92 (which was the major ridge road) is not. We then hiked back south through Beaver Canyon until we hit 415 and walked Rattlesnake Ridge back to the car. It was a nice day and the dogs had a great time fighting over elk bones and other delicious finds. There's a few aspens still giving a show but the days of amazing fall color are long gone. Hopefully this will be my last trip on 300 this year. I'm ready for some desert time.

Nice long dayhike with Chums and 9L. We found some nice patches of color out there and only two groups on the trail-- not counting the cast of Deliverance up top. We saw a couple deer but no other wildlife. I left the dog at home today figuring it would be just a little too toasty for her at the bottom.

We got a pretty early start this morning and hit Martin Canyon first to get the lower elevation done before the sun warmed everything up. We made our climb up to Woodchute and headed north end for the nice viewpoint. After lunch we headed back and were done right at 12:30. It was just beginning to get a warm when we finished so I'm glad we timed it right and had the dog out before the heat set in. She's still working through the final effects of being sick this year and her heat tolerance and recovery are still not up to par so its been nice these last couple weekends getting in some good miles with her without feeling like I pushed her too hard. I like this loop-- though its not the most scenic or challenging, its quiet and pleasant and was a good alternative to driving up to Flagstaff only to be annoyed by the crowds.

This is the second year in a row we did a bit of a fall color tour in the Turkey Beaver Wildlife Area. This is probably be prime over the next few weeks but we still got some good stuff this early. The big bonus today was all the elk we saw and heard-- they bugled all day long. We car camped on Rattlesnake Ridge Saturday night with a good group.

Nice butterfly loop with Lily and 9L. Met up with FOTG, Carrie, and the dogs before heading out. The I-17 was backed up a couple hours due to a brush fire so we took the scenic way home through Yarnell. I'd always kind of wanted an excuse to make that drive-- it was long but pretty and I'm really happy I got a brake job earlier this week :D

Great hike today though there's no apple crop this year. Great to hike with Joe and Wally for the first time in a while. Thanks for driving, Chums.

I had almost forgotten that feeling when you step into the shower and feel the stings of a thousand little cuts. Supes season is back!
