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.

fewer people on this trail than on pinnacle peak the week before. and more views where i couldn't see the city, so that's all good. with record COVID numbers, i brought a face covering (buff) that i put above my nose and mouth every time someone came within six feet of me. i think of the 50 or so people i came in close range with, only 5 were doing the same. i felt strong and slow with this hike, and i even passed a group of three lululemon wearing young ladies. it was super windy on top, almost lost my hat a few times. it did bring the "feels like" temperature down. when i got back down to my car around 9, it was already 91 degrees.

i don't like urban hikes, especially in the valley. if it's too easy to get to it encourages random people, some who have never hiked before, to go there. also, the views suck. i don't like the city close up, or from a little farther away. maybe at night, with the twinkle lights... but this particular trail isn't available at night. i started at 6 am and the parking lot was packed. i left at 8:30 and there were still a lot of people out there, some just starting. it's too hot. i do this type of hike for one reason... fitness, and i'm really out of shape. this is a fairly easy hike, and i huffed and puffed on this urban hike so i will enjoy my out of town hikes more.

friday afternoon, there was a fire near black canyon city, so we decided to go east instead. we disperse camped near gentry lookout. on saturday, we headed down to black canyon lake for some fishing. we headed down about 9 am and it was a good thing. by 10 am the parking lots were completely full. i love (only kind of) that people are getting out and exploring nature who otherwise wouldn't (it made great people watching), but i wish the forest service would give these people not used to shitting in the woods a toilet to use. also, there were so many people. and so many dogs. i used the excuse that the swimming dogs were scaring away the fish to explain my lack of bites, but bobby caught three, kept two, and one was quite large. on sunday morning we had breakfast and had packed up at around 9:30, and headed to sardine point at willow springs lake, which is probably my favorite place to fish. we've been avoiding the main parking area and heading the opposite direction of everyone else and it worked. so peaceful. there were a few motorboats and kayaks, but nothing major. i wish i could've stayed there all day. i got one little nibble, but couldn't convert and bobby caught one and didn't keep it. and we both lost a ton of gear to the rocks at the bottom of the lake.

i posted a picture on social media on friday with the #fullcampground tag so no one would even think about it, and it worked (because you know that absolutely everyone follows me on insta). we had a couple of neighbors that stayed one night, but the campground was fairly empty. we drove right up and got our favorite spot on friday afternoon. the road was pretty good, only one sketchy part but many CUVs made it. there was more ATV noise than ever though during the days. and only a couple of birders! i did try my legs around the interpretive loop and next time i'm here i think i'll go up the sawmill trail and see what damage i can do (to the peak, not my foot). if i make it to the junction (just past the wilderness line), i'll call it a success.

back at the beginning of february, while i was taking an after dinner walk while traveling for business to dallas, i stepped off a curb and landed on my face. when i got up, something wasn't right, and i grabbed a lyft back to my hotel and had a whiskey before nodding off to sleep. in the morning, i knew that i would not be able to wear the heeled boots that i had planned, and wore my tevas. after four hours of meetings, my left foot had swollen significantly and i decided to go to urgent care. long story short... i broke my fifth metatarsal and wasn't able to be load bearing for two months post surgery. i recently started walking again, and this little walk around the fence at humbolt mountain signified my first steps on uneven ground. so yes, i've been lurking. i missed spring with all of the zillions of flowers. i've been wondering how you all have been surviving without baseball. and i've had to live vicariously through you.

my annual birthday campout and associated hike (a week late)... didn't get reef townsite campsite 13 on friday, but since they make you pay the same for the second vehicle in a campsite the same... we had campsite 12 for friday night with two vehicles, and i moved over to campsite 13 for the second night so we wouldn't have any neighbors at least.

the hike... the boots are still comfortable and that first part of old sawmill spring trail still sucks.

the flowers... the deers ears were taller than me but not yet in full bloom. the generic yellow flowers near the top attracted all of the pollinators. so many butterflies!

since i hadn't been hiking in a while, it took me nearly all day... but i still hike circles around the sofa spuds. when i was enjoying my peak beer, there were a couple of young studs who were bragging at their time up at 53 minutes. i wouldn't have gotten any photos if i did it that way.

drove up the FR 626 to the gate, then walked up to see what i could see. beautiful! started the drive down, then my car told me that a tire had 28 pounds of pressure when it usually had 38. uh oh. i had four miles of one-lane dirt road to get to pavement. white knuckling it, i got down to pavement with 25 psi. whew. then i called AAA to change my tire, since i hadn't done it with this vehicle. if i would've known they were going to send someone from fountain hills, i probably would've winged it. the original quote of under an hour became two and a half hours. and then the donut was put on, which i was lucky to have since it didn't come with the vehicle. drove directly to the firestone in payson, which offered a whole different set of challenges.

i wanted to do a hike, bobby wanted to see the peak, but not hike, so we drove down from pioneer pass so we could drive to pinal peak, then i hiked back down to our campground. not as much fall color as i've seen on other trails, since the trees are mainly oak and manzanita. one little area with some maple, but they were down the canyon from the trail. there are far worse ways to spend a saturday afternoon. saw no one and no critters along the trail, but lots of bear poo.

we headed up to ashurst lake on friday afternoon. we got our favorite spot (#1) at forked pine campground. it's amazing how much prices have risen there but they still don't have additional amenities. $18 per night and no flush toilets, solar lights in the bathroom, or showers, which you get at organ pipe cactus national monument for $16 per night. seems a ripoff... but, we do love vic, our camp host. and we love to fish here. we pay extra to walk just a few feet from our tent to the lake shore. we got rained on in the middle of the night on saturday night, and didn't have any real weather otherwise until we were on our way home. the water is so high this year, too. we caught four on saturday and three on sunday. but you should've seen the one that got away... it was soooo big - biggest i've ever seen outside the hatchery. it took my hook with it.

i like to camp up at carr canyon near my birthday, and this year is no exception. usually the monsoon season will have started, yet not enough into it to lift fire restrictions so many of the people usually drawn to the campgrounds at reef townsite and ramsey vista may not come. more for me.

we made our way down from phoenix on friday afternoon, picked up some subway sandwiches, and made our way up to my favorite campsite (reef #13). it's right next to the group site, so if the group site is unoccupied, we can sit out the storms under the large ramada there. there was a little storm as soon as we got in, but it stopped before sunset so we were able to get our tent up without rain falling on us.

saturday morning, bobby and i hiked up the old sawmill trail, then he went down the carr peak trail to ramsey vista campground and then back the road to camp. i continued to hike up. i haven't been hiking in a really long time, so i wanted to see what i could see. and see if my legs could make it. it turns out my legs still work. i didn't make it all the way to the peak, as i had friends coming up from sierra vista around noon and i didn't get an early enough start. i turned around and it seemed like i was so close. according to my fitbit, i had made it 1.6 miles from the sawmill trail junction, but you can't trust those things.

it turns out great minds think alike, and later that afternoon, randy pulled into the campground. in the evening, we had a great time catching up and drinking beers. then the rains came down and we had to scatter to our respective tents. we crossed paths in the morning before randy took off to hike the mountain, and bobby and i headed down to start the trek back to phoenix.

go fish! we've been thinking about coming up here at least once this summer. mingus "lake" is hardly a lake, but it is stocked with trout, so we fished! we were catching 'em left and right. no one else was - probably due to they were all using bobbers. we were using powerbait at the bottom and tada. fish! sunday we walked out past the hang glider launch all the way to the benchmark before heading back down the mountain. we had breakfast at this cute little place called the mine cafe in jerome. i liked it.

second time out here this season. it's always so nice to get out of the heat of phoenix, but it was still quite warm during the day. it was really cool to put on a sweater when the sun went down though, if even for just a little bit.

saw some firefighters. caught some fish (we've been having really good luck out here this year!). drank some beers. good times.

quite a number of years back, randy and i took a really long time to travel the apache trail - stopping at every wide spot in the road to take pictures of flowers. when bobby suggested roosevelt lake as our camping spot this weekend, i knew that this would be awesome. bobby doesn't stop at every wide spot in the road, though. instead, only vista points with parking lots. still, a great road trip. and we even hiked up to the tonto national monument on sunday, so there was a little hiking involved.

it was a windy weekend at organ pipe cactus national monument and that made camping chilly. on saturday we did a little road trip to quitobaquito. we had been there before just a few years ago (not sure why the description says it's closed to the public). this time we walked up to the source and that was kind of fun. i love exploring new places - and seeing familiar places in a different light.

another random stop on my way home, only this one took more gas. i drove to webb peak from phoenix, and then home to tucson. now, that's a long way home. saw one young couple at the trailhead, so i left them plenty of time to get up and out so i could have the lookout to myself, but when i got up there, they were still in the lookout. i waited patiently at the bottom. i had been looking for some fall color, and there it was - spotty, but it was there.

on the way back from phoenix to tucson some random monday during the monsoon season, i decided to hike up to the saddle of picacho peak. it sprinkled on me only a little bit up and down, and some nice wind to cool me off.
