2 night trip with Dustin, Gil, Paul, and Kevin. Paul flew out from Ohio for his yearly trip to the southwest for this one. Originally planned to try to do this two weeks later to have more green on the trees, but work obligations dictated it be done in early February. Headed in about 10am under sunny skies. Most of the trees were still rather bare, but was happy to see some trees starting to bud out. The in-creek sections felt chilly at first, but as the day warmed up near 70 degrees, it started to feel good. The first couple miles were pleasant with the canyon more open, but got much more spectacular the further we headed upstream and the canyon narrowed. Having never hiked Aravaipa before, we were guessing we would try to find a campsite between 3 and 5 miles in. We passed on a couple decent sites at 2.5 and 3.5 miles in before finding a nice place at the 4 mile mark that was intimate but had a nice variety of spots for both tents and hammocks.

After setting up camp, eating lunch, and collecting some firewood, we headed further upstream for exploration, photo hunting, and rock climbing (for Dustin and Kevin at least). I got caught up photographing the creekside greenery and trailed behind. A little I came across Kevin decked out in climbing gear and spotting Dustin as he bouldered up a pock-marked cliff face. When Dustin returned to the canyon bottom, we continued upstream until turning back at the mouth of Virgus Canyon. Definitely blown away by the beauty of this canyon.

Back at camp we built a fire and broke out a bottle of Kraken spiced rum and some gin and tonic. It was a lively night around the campfire to say the least. Gil brought a soft cooler full of carne asada which we roasted over the fire and ate with tortillas and homemade salsa.

The next morning I went downstream a bit to try to grab a photo or two of a spot green with groundcover that we passed on the hike in. The creek was frigid in the morning shade, and I had to climb back in my hammock and sleeping bag to warm back up upon returning to camp. I wasn't the only one that was cold, despite being the only one to wade in the creek. Paul decided to scramble up the scree slope above us to get into the sunshine and warm his bones- Gil, Dustin, and I joined him to lounge on a sunny rock outcropping with a nice view up and down canyon. Kevin had to get back to civilization for work responsibilities so he packed up his stuff and bailed a day early.

Eventually we decided to go on a little dayhike upstream. As soon as we started hiking, I noticed a pain in my left ankle. I had rolled it during the previous night's exploration, and walking around on it further seemed to be aggravating it. I knew I was gonna have to cut the day's exploration's short, but continued with the rest of the guys to at least have a gander at what was past Virgus Canyon.

As we approached the mouth of Virgus, disaster struck, but not to my ankle. When I had zipped my pack closed, I left the two zipper pulls together at the top of the pack, and then carabinered a full nalgene bottle to the loop on the front of the pack. Gravity acting on the water bottle pulled the zipper open and unloaded the full contents of my daypack into the creek. This included a camera body and three lenses among other things. Dustin was nearby to help me collect everything, but the camera definitely got fully submerged. I'm still letting it dry out with hopes it'll come back to life. At least I had my other camera body with a lens on it in my hand, so not all of my gear went for a swim. Regardless, talk about adding insult to injury.

Not about to let an accident like that ruin my trip, I decided to grin and bear it. We continued upstream past Virgus in a rather open stretch of canyon bottom that featured huge cottonwoods towering over a row of primo campsites, each with big fire rings and lots of logs for seating. Lots of space for tents, but also options for hammock hanging. Definitely will be shooting to camp here when I make it back to Aravaipa.

Just after the campsites, Horse Camp Canyon opened up to the north. I didn't want to push my ankle any further and the sandy beach next to the creek looked enticing. I told the other guys to go ahead and explore up the side canyon and I would wait for them. After emptying the contents of my pack to start the drying process, I laid down on the sand and enjoyed the solitude.

The guys really enjoyed the hike up Horse Camp, but were treated to some even more special on the way back. As we wandered back by the campsites and big cottonwoods, we spotted a herd of about 10 desert bighorn sheep grazing up on the bluff across canyon. We sat down on a big ol' log and watched the do their thing for about fifteen minutes. Gil had been chomping at the bit to see some, he got his wish.

When we returned to camp, I decided it was best to get in my hammock and elevate my foot. Upon removing my shoes, it was apparent that my left ankle was a bit swollen compared to the right one. There was one spot on the front of the ankle that looked a little purple, and indeed felt tender when I tapped on it with my finger. I figured it was a light to moderate sprain. Dustin went out to do a bit of scrambling, I lounged in my hammock, Paul snored away in his own hammock, and Gil collected firewood. It was a pretty leisurely afternoon.

With my ankle pretty sore, I decided to forego the evening photo hunting. The wind blew up and some light clouds wafted across the sky. We wondered if some weather was coming in. Paul and I pitched our tarps just in case. At the very least, they would create a windbreak to keep us a bit warmer. With the added wind chill, we started the fire early, as well as the drinking. Within a few hours we had consumed yet another carne asada feast and also polished off the Kraken. It was another lively night around the campfire.

The next morning, the plan was to leave by 9:00am and be out around 1:00pm, but with my injury, I was thinking I needed to be ready before everyone and get an earlier start. Of course, hobbling around also made me slow at tearing down and packing up. I ended up the last one ready, but we did hit the trail by 8:30. I had an ace bandage and wrapped my ankle with it, and it did feel much better that way. As long as I didn't put weight on my heel, I was able to walk without pain, and was able to keep up with the rest of the guys so we maintained a reasonable pace. With a slight downhill and walking with the current in the creek, we were able to make good time hit the trailhead just after 11:00. Despite a minor injury and a camera gear disaster, it was an amazing trip! I'm definitely looking to get out to Aravaipa again in the future.

Evening hike up to the overlook for sunset. The tundra at Logan Pass was popping with wildflowers and greenery. About halfway up the boardwalk, snow came into play. My wife braved it for a bit but it was the end of an already long day and multiple other snow crossings ahead meant that she was ready to turn back. She went back to the car (and got some funny video of a herd of bighorn sheep on the way back) while I continued. I only planned to go to the overlook anyway, but wanted to explore a little up there too, but the trail and general area around the overlook was closed (with lots of barricades, signs, and tape) out beyond due to grizzly activity. Me and a handful of other photographers were confined to the boardwalk, but still had a good time and enjoyed a nice sunset. "Skiing" down one of the icy snowpatches on the way back down was sure fun too.

Camped for a couple nights with the in-laws at Pine Flat Campground. One night when everyone else was going to bed I headed up Cookstove with the intent to shoot night photos with the waxing gibbous moon lighting up the canyon. I guess its been awhile since I've hiked a steep trail because this one got my calves burning real quick. I stopped at what I like to call the Balcony and played around with some photos while waiting for the Milky Way to creep a little higher over the canyon wall to the south. As the Milky Way was coming into view and I had nailed down a nice composition, some clouds blew up. Got some nice shots with the clouds anyway. Trail seemed steeper than I remember on the way down, but maybe it looks worse in the dark.

A sunday afternoon hike with my wife and a few of the in-laws. My brother-in-law brought his 2 year old daughter in a ride-along pack. She loved it!

My wife and I took my sister-in-law and her boyfriend up (they'd never been). It was snowing off and on most of the day but it was just a bit too warm to stick. The fog was the real show, however. According to my FitBit, I managed to walk about 5 miles for day so not bad for a sightseeing trip!

Christmas sunset hike with the wife. Could see snow on the Bradshaws and the New River Mountains. Evidence of erosion from the prior day's rain in the steeper sections of trail. Didn't see another person. Perfect!

4 Day trip- Down South Kaibab with 2 nights at Bright Angel Campground and then the hike out split into 2 days on Bright Angel with a night at Indian Garden. Brought 10 guys total and had an absolute blast. Weather was perfect, and only a little ice on the trail on the hike out. Beautiful (peak?) fall color along both Bright Angel and Garden Creeks. Moonrise on day 2 and day 3 were phenomenal. Took dayhikes to Phantom Canyon and Plateau Point. Two thumbs up.

Just one bit of a 4 night stay at the North Rim Campground. We had quite a group up there with a bunch of my in-laws. On this day, we had a late afternoon shower but some sunlight starting to peek through the clouds indicated that a rainbow might be in the cards. The hunch paid off! A full double that just wouldn't stop. I got up on the big rock and secured a spot for the rest of the show. Soon I was joined by a lovely family from North Carolina that had just hiked the across the canyon from the South Rim. They had a bunch of kids (some were teenagers) plus the dad and they were all super friendly and definitely joke-crackers. I had a great time bantering with them and enjoying the beautiful light and weather at the most beautiful place on earth.

For those that have followed my journeys in the past, you may or may not recall that I interned at Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument back in 2011. I wrote a 5-year Sustainable Hiking Trails Management Plan, and helped design sustainable realignments/improvements of existing trails, as well new designs to expand the park's trail system. At the time, I thought it was unlikely that any of the plan's recommendations would be taken seriously. When my wife I and visited the park on a whim for a short afternoon hike, I was tickled to discover that the Lenox Crater Trail had been realigned into our recommended specifications, making for a better hiking experience, as well as better protecting the fragile volcanic environment. Also based on our plan's recommendations, we found that what used to be a short and rough but popular social trail has been improved to an actual trail (A'a Trail) and new trails were carved north of Lenox Crater: a connector to the Lava Flow Trailhead, and a short trail to a viewshed nearby (Bonito Vista Trail). We did not have time hike any of the other trails, but we were able to hike the new alignment of Lenox Crater Trail. It really turned out better than I imagined at time, in terms of enjoyment, and also the reduction of impact on the landscape. I'm so proud that work I did at this park has actually become something!

Started at about 1pm with no cars in the 67th Ave Trailhead. Saw 5 other people on trail total, plus a guy having a picnic with his kids on the shaded picnic benches. More activity than I was expecting, honestly, but refreshing to have the place almost to myself, compared to the winter crowds on this mountain at least. 32 oz of water plus a 12 oz gatorade was a definite necessity for the short time I was out there.

I feel bad I haven't shared on HAZ in a long time. I have been diversifying my exercise so I'm not hiking nearly as much as I used to, but I think I got some awesome photos during my Colorado trip in early June so I gotta share! This was a little dayhike on the Potato Lake Trail (known to locals of Durango as Spud Lake). It was an awesome little hike, and the lake at the trailhead itself was pretty sweet too. Great views on the hike up, and Potato Lake was super relaxing. We were there on a saturday so it was a bit busy with fisherman but still awesome non the less.

Just a short little hike down to a rocky outcrop above Purgatory Flats. It packed a definite scenic punch in a short distance though! Just a taste of what lies further down the trail I'm sure.

Early morning hike up Picacho Peak. Camped at the park's campground the night before with my wife. She slept in while I got up before sunrise. The hike up to the saddle was steep but invigorating. Then cables came up, which seemed a bit unnecessary in most places. I was by myself the whole hike up, but then met a nice couple at the summit. It was much busier on the way down. The real excitement was when a took a spill near the trailhead, and my car key in my pocket got bent in the process. Then when I went to start the car, the bent key wouldn't fit the ignition. I had to walk the couple miles back to camp to get the spare key, and then walk another couple miles back to the car. Definitely got some extra exercise.

My standard short n' sweet jaunt. I don't normally write anything when I do this one but something interesting happened today. Well, maybe only interesting to me. I left home wearing my Vans skate shoes instead of my hiking shoes on accident, and didn't realize until I got to the trailhead. I hiked anyway, and it felt pretty good actually. The soles are thin so stepping on rocks put more pressure on my feet, but I kinda liked it. Reminds me of the thin shoes that Hodlofski was wearing (with success in easing joint pain), I may have to try out some of those. I liked the Vans but the tread may not be up to snuff.

I haven't been hiking much lately, at least not beyond giving "desert walk" tours at Taliesin West, so I haven't been too active here on HAZ. But I did get out to hike and take photos out at Pinnacle Peak for the stormy weather on Monday. Hadn't ever been out here before, nice area, but all the area closed and no-off trail hiking signs were definitely a detriment and a turn-off for what I intended to do. Bailed a little early and went down to the the 104th/Bell TH at MSP for sunset. Hoping to be hiking more soon!
