i do like this hike, but would've done something different had i done any research into what i could do from the campsite. oh well. it was cooler and it almost rained. i saw a couple of drops on the rocks, but i figured it was my sweat. the flowers were even more parched than last week.

from the apple watch: 4.73 miles, 824 calories, 1,194 elevation gain, 121 avg. heart rate. 71 degrees, humidity 27 percent.

yes, it was a little hot (80 is usually my limit). i was determined to do this hike anyway though.

we always like to head south for holiday weekends so we don't have traffic woes going or coming back. we even got my lucky spot #13 in a campground that was about half full. on our way there, i was checking out various websites and noticed that the sierra vista sky island summit challenge was on saturday, but i also saw the route they were taking would only intersect mine on the spur up to the peak, so i decided saturday would be my day for the hike.

on the way up, i started noticing those tent caterpillars, then i noticed the larva sacks in the aspens. that stretch through the aspens is usually my favorite, but those tents made it creepy. i thought they were killing the aspens until i got back to camp and googled it. apparently the cycle is a year - the aspen leaves will be back next year. this year though... ew.

the disgust continued after the aspens when i came upon some migrant trash. i have seen that on miller before, but this was a first for me on carr. there were at least eight backpacks, dirty clothing, empty water bottles, and empty green chile cans. this was a dump spot for sure.

onward and upward, when i started up the carr peak spur, i said hello to many of the summit challenge people, and most didn't even make eye contact, let alone say hello. that was a hard hike though, and they still had miles to go. it was kind of cool to get the cowbell treatment at the peak, and the volunteers cheered me on, even though i didn't have a number to log for their challenge. i ran into one person i recognized from instagram and folks at the top were more talkative to be sure.

on the way down, there was a volunteer that was suffering from dehydration. her husband was on the phone with the EMTs and they were figuring out what to do. she had plenty of water, but apparently wasn't able to keep it down. they assured me that they were getting the help they needed, and i made my way down the rest of the way.

oh! apple watch stats: time: 3:02:13, distance: 6.03 miles, active calories: 855, total calories: 1,133, elevation gain: 1,961, avg. heart rate: 130 bpm, average pace: 30'12"/mile, weather: 73 degrees, humidity 6 percent (and super windy).

i think the wind wasn't quite as harsh on saturday as it was on friday or sunday, but maybe that was just because i didn't have to set up or take down the tent. or maybe it was that i got to spend 24 minutes in this canyon.

i have a lucky friend who lives between the mormon and geronimo trailheads so we started at her house at 6:30 am and went up geronimo, over the national trail to hidden valley. photo op on both ends there, then a busy mormon trail back.

i got an early start on sunday and i was planning on going to go to the tom's thumb after going to the lookout, but why? there were probably 50 people at the thumb and i liked that i only saw three workout folks up at the lookout, who turned around as soon as they got there. with as many people on the trail when i was ending my hike, it was kind of shocking that there was no one around when i saw that rattlesnake. also, so many people on the trail with headphones or without headphones but clearly thinking they have good taste in music so that everyone needed to listen. i'm glad it was me who heard the snake first, then saw it, rather than one of those people. although part of me thinks that darwin could take care of it. it was only my fourth rattlesnake encounter on the trail ever.

stats are from strava. my watch captured something different: 5.14 miles, and 1430 ft of elevation. average pace 29'20", total calories 909, average heart rate 128 bpm, weather 60 degrees, 27 percent humidity at 6:27 am.

i was thinking that i would rate each trail by the number of people i saw on the trail until i got to the last trail (desert park trail), where i didn't see anyone but it was surrounded by views of people's backyards. i had the most fun coming down out of windgate pass and back up the east end trail. i took my break up at the lookout with just one other person, and i also really enjoyed coming down the tom thumb trail in the rain. oh yes, the rain was so sweet.

side note: i had trouble with route scout losing me again for nearly all of the east end trail, and then although i was following the micky d loop route up until that time and also had the tom's thumb loop off windgate pass saved in my files, it continued me on the latter route. i'll look for an idiot's user forum on this to figure that out.

also, since tibber does this, i figured i'd include my stats from my fitness watch: total time: 6:49:25, distance: 13.98 miles, active calories: 1,703, total calories: 2,327, elevation gain 3,096 ft., average heart rate: 128 bpm, average pace: 29'16". weather 60 degrees, humidity 30%.

there's a box at the trailhead for a mandatory $2 per person. i paid, the couple just behind me didn't. they passed me at the pay station - maybe they've never seen it before and weren't prepared with their cash. as long as i could hear them talking, i got angry about this. so... i passed them and got them out of earshot and i could enjoy the hike again.

i read that the last mile of this hike is a real pumpkin. i expected a road, i didn't expect it to be paved - and it's really only the paved parts that are super steep. and yes, that's the better part of the last mile. i did better than i expected on that last mile though. there were two trail runners who could carry on a conversation while going up this section - i don't think they were going fast enough. i spent about 25 minutes at the top without any company. then there were close to a dozen when i went back down. i think i lost a pant size on this hike for as much as my glutes were feeling on the way up, and i had to talk my knees into the trek down. "you can do it, knees, only one more paved section to go..."

i've been trying new things. i wanted something not too long since i started so late and i know my hiking speed. during the first mile, i saw more bags of dog poo than I did dogs. there were not a lot of people (or dogs) on their way up to sunrise peak from this trailhead and i didn't mind. i had a good long rest at the top without any company. all in all a good day. Note: only my second time using route scout and it lost me for a bit. i don't know how to edit, or even if i should. close enough.

i really wanted to do the loop that rcorfman had a route for, but apparently the southern part of that loop has been sectioned off since he did it last- in case you were wondering about my little spur on my route. southpawaz also talked about doing it that way and i actually did it with him way back when. anyway, i was bummed, because i didn't want the 17-mile loop, i wanted the 12-mile loop and i didn't get either. i got an out and back. i had somehow conveniently forgotten about all the water crossings - so i ended up with blisters walking with wet shoes and socks. it was worth every minute of it though. i'm getting into my groove and i love it. i love when you can hike for an hour and see no one, hear no one, etc. you know it's a slow trail when no hikers pass me going up (there were about 20 cyclists though, but most were in a group and courteous). it was really nice to do a long hike again. it had been a while. if i had remembered the water crossings, i would've remembered the waterproof boots. oh, on this day, there were a bunch of trail runners doing a 50-mile run around these parts, that was on my way down, and it was easy in those places for me to step off and let them pass.

this hike was featured in azcentral as a good alternative to camelback, so i decided to try it. i have to say, it's really cool, not too many hikers and a good workout - except for the proximity to the nearby firing range. the constant sound of gunfire is a little off-putting, and not for anyone with PTSD.

the pyramid peak hike on south mountain was featured in the january issue of arizona highways as the hike of the month, so i thought i'd try it. i got there and didn't feel like i was done, so i figured i'd keep going. on the way to pyramid, i randomly ran into a coworker who i didn't know. he was wearing a company shirt so i introduced myself to him and his son. they reached their destination and i moved on. i kinda loved that section of the national trail - hardly a soul and no bikes. the bursera trail made it so i went uphill both ways but i liked it. a great day to be on the trails.

we were just going to fish, but i really hated all the algae since the lake level was so low, so i decided to hike around the lake. there are two named trails, and then some various routes to take in between them. i started in the middle, a bit off the Rocky Bluff Trail (https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/asnf/re ... &actid=104) and went toward the dam, where the trail ends and the route finding becomes a little more adventurous. you get almost all the way around and then you see the end of the other trail, the Three Oaks Trail https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/asnf/re ... &actid=104. i'm a bit surprised that neither one of these trails have write-ups here for me to link (i know joe, time for me to author a couple of trail descriptions). i just got a new camera, so i was figuring out all the little quirks of both the camera and the user errors, and so i ended up using my phone for most. photos coming *soon*

what was of particular note to me were the number of different kinds of wildflowers, not that there were a lot of flowers, but everywhere i looked, there was a unique variety.

we arrived about 5 pm on july 2, and found only two of the campsites taken where we like to camp, and our favorite spot was available, so we jumped on it. i didn't know whether i wanted to rest on the 3rd and hike on the 4th or the other way around. there was a chance that the weatherman randy was going to join for saturday, so i went ahead and procrastinated, which is a normal state for me. the evening of the 3rd saw the biggest gain in campers, and most decided to leave before the planned socially distant fireworks in sierra vista. i had some hearty oatmeal to start, and then i was on my way. so far away from the yelling kids, the unz unz, and the vehicle noise.

some people like to hike for fitness, and that's not me. some people like to hike for the camaraderie. also... not me. i want to get as far away from it all as possible, and that's when you'll find me smiling from ear to ear on the trail.

i started on the sawmill springs trail, which tries to kill me every time i hike up or down that damn thing, and after i got on the carr peak trail, i saw that someone had numbered the switchbacks in paint (vandals). i had noticed this the last time i hiked it, so this time i figured i'd go ahead an take a picture to document the destruction. i was also wondering how many switchbacks before i couldn't hear the screaming children, the vehicles struggling up the hill, or the unz unz of the vehicle's "music." the answer, for those of you wondering, is just two to not hear the children, and eight to not hear any signs of vehicles. and here i was debating whether or not to go all the way... i heard fellow hikers at switchback 9, and even with my slow hiking, it took another switchback to not hear those voices.

i didn't have very good cell service at the campsite, so i was planning on calling my mom when i got to the top for her birthday. i opened a celebratory beer and had a good conversation with my mom until it started raining. i cut the call short, downed the rest of my beer, and before i knew it, the rain had turned to hail. it wasn't too far along the trail, when the thunder and lightning started too. i'm glad i made it off the unprotected peak and down the trail a bit before that. the hike down was pleasant, with the softer dirt under my feet. the rocks were still unforgiving though. a few more breaks communicating with folks because i had cell service, and i eventually made it back to camp. it had rained there, too, and it continued to sprinkle on and off for a couple of hours.

i had great plans to watch the sierra vista fireworks from the picnic bench on top of the hill, but the view wasn't great, and it was too far away to see much of anything.

we packed up camp the next morning and had breakfast burritos in sierra vista before making our way back to the sweltering heat if the valley. the weekends always end too soon.
