Took the fam to the swim holes along WCC. Pretty mellow at 8AM and completely packed at 1PM. Made it as far back as the wilderness sign. This canyon and I have had some big differences over the years but I love this place.

Just beating the heat for a few hours. Still so many areas in AZ I have never been to before. Had some friends camping up there so they dropped me a pin. Started at the AZT#30 TH and made my way to their camp. Bugs all up in my face. The trail runs along a small hillside for the first couple miles through a medium dense forest. After this it follows an old railroad bed which is pretty cool because a lot of the 100+ year old railroad ties are still there on top of a mound of bedrock that makes its own path through the trees. Crazy to think of a train coming through and breaking the silence of the forest with a thunderous roar so long ago.. The trail follows the railroad grade for a few miles and then ditches it and heads northeast. Bug bites all over Luna's belly. After not seeing anyone for a couple hours, the Lake Mary Road area was bustling. Passed through the nice AZT gate on the other side of the road and checked the GPS. Surprisingly, found the camp pretty easily among the now small village of people camping near Ashhurst Lake. Threw back a few cold ones and then back to the TH, just could not stay for long and tired of getting attacked. Great weather for a hike but you gotta keep moving because those gnats dont quit.

Took the teens and one of their friends for a night hike up Squaw. No lights the entire way up but after a few slips turned them on going down. Up and down no problem, great cardio, strong legs, feeling great.

3rd time’s the charm, I guess. 3 of us had planned on staying at the cabin after a 6 hour hike. Went up Casner first to get it out of the way but it really burned everyone out with the packs on. The trail (road) goes up over the mountain and then rides a ridgeline for a while which is pretty cool because it literally dissects 2 different wilderness areas. Sycamore Canyon to the west and Red Rock-Secret Mountain to the east. J had some pain in his quad but kept pushing on to the Taylor Cabin trail. Hiking down seemed to make it worse for him than the uphill. We were pretty much at the point of no return when he seemed to really slow and started breaking down. Also learned that he drank all his water for the entire trip so far. I took the leadership role and made sure we all stayed positive. Chase and I discussed options. The trail here is really fantastic. It stays down in the bottom of the canyon with very narrow cliffs to either side. After several miles and even more breaks we finally made it to Sycamore Canyon proper. No signs of water. Followed the super easy trail about 1 1/2 mile short of the cabin and we found a huge pool. The range of emotions this afternoon was grand. Elated, we jumped in and had a swim, then pumped gallons directly into us.

Followed the creekbed most of the way to the cabin in the AM and, although not too impressed with the grounds there, the cabin itself was cleaner than my shed at my house. Loved the Sycamore Basin Trail. The canyon is sooo huge and green, I almost got that feeling of smallness and insignificance you get when you hike the GC. The hike out of Dogie was a hot slog, and it has much better views going into the canyon, so we made sure to stop (shade) and just look around once in a while to soak it in.

Finally glad to check this one off, though it was a reminder of great importance to not only make sure you are prepared, but to make sure those in your party are adequately prepared, also.

Quick over-nighter with the Lunatic to get some solitude and clear my head a bit. Lots of people camping at the TH. I decided to take the 'shortcut' route through the creek, instead of following the road up and over the hill. A lot of in and out of the water and scrambling up on the rocks to get through. I got to the AZT junction and realized I forgot an item in the car. Decided to walk the road back instead. Actually not too bad of a climb up and down and then up and down again. Passed a couple who had just gave up on finding some ruins in the area. Took a break at the beach at the East Verde and played a little guitar while the peacocks sang. Hiked to the very close Polk Spring and this area was so nice and inviting, I just stopped and made camp there. Took a nice nap and then started preparing dinner when a guy doing the AZT all the way through thought this was also a great spot to camp.. 200 ft away from me. So much for the solitude. Hiking out in the AM, I decided to take the road again. Despite the short climb, it was way easier than going through the creek again. As I got to the fence at the top of the hill, I spotted movement up in the cliffs to the north. I locked my eyes where I saw it and spotted a man climbing up there. Right at the fence there was a bit of a trail leading up, so I dropped the pack and started going up. Super easy to follow route led to the top of the cliff where I met the man I saw minutes before. He pointed me to the end of the cliff band to the ruins. Pretty impressive stuff. All the walls were 6ft tall and the whole thing was over 50 ft long. I haven't spent too much time in the Mazzies, so this was a nice change. Will have to do so more exploring out there.. after it cools off.

I have hiked the entire length of the Dutchman probably 3-4 times over but have never done the whole thing in one shot. I thought this would be a good 'feather in the cap' type hike for the boy and myself. J+J, 2 teen boys, the Lunatic, and myself dropped off a vehicle at First Water at 6AM and not a minute to soon because the lot was PACKED. Surprisingly only a handful of cars at Peralta TH. Began right about sunrise and made it to the base of Miner's Needle in an hour. The boys thought the eye of the needle was cool. Just past the saddle is the burn area. It lasted to just before Bluff Springs. It was not a big area, but there was nothing that was not scorched. Water from Bluff Spring smelled sulfuric and tasted awful, so we passed and filtered from the next creek. There was a small creek every 500 yards or so, so we were never worried about water the entire hike. The preemo spot at Oak Spring was a rest stop of sorts as 3 different groups stopped and rested at the same time. Made camp at my favorite spot near Charliebois. The boys still had enough energy and were brave enough to jump in the largest pool for a while. We also had to go to the Master Map and get those clues! Had an owl hooting all night. All Night. Broke camp about 9:30AM and started on that easy going, flat, sandy section of the hike toward Marsh Valley. A lot of people in this area camping. Water everywhere. After reading ‘The Killer Mountains' last year, the conversation on the hike around Bluff Springs Mountain was full of folklore, legends, and the repeated question of where exactly Mr. Ruth's head was found. Lunch was at the West Boulder crossing and once again shared the spot with several other groups in the grass along the bank of the creek. We pick good break spots. Proud of the boys because they kept a great pace the whole trip. I could tell P really had a great time. More and more people playing in the water as we got closer to the TH. Made it to FW about 2:30PM. There were so many people, it looked like a holiday weekend on the rim. But who can blame 'em? You gotta get out here as often as you can this time of year. Happy I got to do the whole trail and happier I got to do it with my son.

Knew it would be wet but I had no idea. Tons of cars parked on the side road at 7AM not daring enter the horse lot (aka demolition derby mud track). First Water crossings were knee high. The side drainage which is probably dry most of the year was a flowing creek the entire way up. Favorite part of the hike was when we finally got up towards the saddle and away from all the bushwacking and soaked feet. Did not see a real trail once I left the Dutchman all the way up to the Massacre Falls trail. Followed the masses to the falls and soaked in the experience at selfieville. I have never been underneath when it was flowing so much before, it was actually pretty cool. Passed by an open mine on the very lightly used but super flat and easy path back to First Water. May or may not have done some laps before we headed home.

First time out to this wonderful place and it was fantastic! Last minute decision to go and there were plenty of permits still available. Saw a bobcat on the drive in which was the first good sign. The trail is mostly just walking in the creek for the first mile or so = frozen feet. After a while a very distinct trail was followed as it crisscrossed the creek many times. Came across some javelina and several deer on the hike just past Horse Camp Canyon. Unbelievable amount of animal tracks. I have never seen so may in my life. Deer, javelina, racoons, coatis, and CATS! We made camp near Booger Canyon and decided to take the side trek and it was well worth it. Lots of climbing over HUGE boulders took us to a section with so many waterfalls, we lost count. Found a nice ledge to take a break on and watch the sunset. As soon as that sun sets, it drops like 20 degrees. None of the camp spots had fire rings, but we were very sure there were no fire restrictions (unlike one unnamed, unfortunate soul). I had 27 on the thermometer at 7AM. Shoes and socks were frozen solid. No issues with animals getting into our food, but we did bag it and hang it properly (unlike one unnamed, unfortunate soul). The hike out was about 30 minutes quicker that the hike in. This included a nice talk with the park ranger, Heidi, who was picking some invasive mustard plants and checking permits. If you see her, her name is Heidi, she is not asking for your ID :sl: Saw more deer and some Cardinals. For some reason I left feeling somewhat disappointed. Probably due to the season and still not seeing a bighorn in the wild. Does not take away from this totally amazing area and cant wait to go back when its not so cold!

Took some buds to the airstrip for the afternoon. This is one of those hikes where the drive is longer and tougher than the hike itself. Super easy stroll along the creek bed or side road down to the Verde. Tons of animal tracks. Nothing was green due to the season, but it is still cool to be walking in the wetland area and have all the saguaros and desert up above you. I forgot how funny it is the 'road' just pops out of nowhere sometimes. The creek was flowing the entire length to the Verde this time due to all the rain we had recently. Tons of animal tracks. The Verde was seriously flowing. No way would I cross on the trail here. We estimated it to be perfect kayaking flow. Didn't see any wreckage from recent plane crash, but we didn't expect much anyway. Got 2 ringers on 5 throws. On the hike back we saw ATV tracks over our steps about 2 miles from the TH indicating someone was back there with us, but we didn't see or hear anyone the whole hike. Tons of animal tracks. Didn't see one single animal either, not even a bird, a bug, nothing.

Still trying to take it easy as the doc hasn’t quite given me the 100% yet so I opted for the AZT again this time South from Sunflower. Super easy going and wide trail. Sycamore was roaring. The creek crossing a couple miles in was exciting and coooold. After a while it really opened up as the trail followed a creek through the valley. 4 miles in I decided I had enough of the sloppiness so I took a little break and then headed back. The return creek crossing had me questioning my sanity. I spotted snow on the Mazzies hiking back.

Back was feeling great a week later so decided to kick it up a notch just a bit with this loop. Temps in the 30s had me in layers to start the day. Trail was pretty steady uphill and very easy to follow all the way up to a saddle with great views of the Black Ridge. Passed a corral with several nice looking horses in it. Missed the turn and kept on the AZT for about a 1/4 mile before I realized and turned around. This part of the hike was really fun to follow. Really a glorified game trail that slowly made its way down to a spring that I didnt actually find but, was a nice area. Kept thinking it would be cool to be on horseback. The ascent up the ridge was not bad at all and trail was really easy to follow mostly due to the deer/elk tracks all the way up. Once I got to the top, I lost the trail completely, but stayed on course to Brunson Tank which was the break spot. Fantastic views towards Saguaro Lake. Lost and found the trail again and started the decent. It was pretty rocky and jarring, and I did my best to avoid the ol slip n slide.

Talk about solitude. I felt like there wasnt another person around for miles the entire hike and I really enjoyed the quiet of these mountains.

First trip out since August and back surgery. Had to get out for my birthday and wanted something relatively flat and not in town, this was just perfect. Pretty good cache at the beginning of #22, shout out to those who stock it up for the long haulers. Brisk in the AM and then about perfect temps towards noon. Water in every crevice. Stopped at Rock Springs for a bit and then up to the powerlines for another break and turn around point. The breeze was carrying clouds of pollen from the pinons and/or junipers across the mountains, it looked like fog almost. Passed only 2 on horseback and 2 hunters the whole hike.

Really eased back into it.. 10 miles :lol:

I heard about this one from a friend of mine that lives in California. A week long family vacation to San Diego had a free day for me to get away so I decided to go to the top of Southern California! This was a very beautiful and challenging hike. Even the drive in was scenic. The parking lot still had several spots available at 6:30AM, but there was no one in the Kiosk to buy an Adventure Pass Parking Pass and the Elkhorn store was closed, so I left a note on the windshield instead and NO TICKET! :app: .
The bugs were ferocious. After crossing the Mill Creek, and this thing was massive, the hike goes on a pretty steady incline up 1000 ft or so for a little over a mile. I felt it was pretty mild compared to what I have read about. The first camp was right around the corner from there and there were several deer that first were being stubborn about getting off the trail and out of the way and then followed me on the trail for another 1000 feet. Water stops were brief as the mosquitoes had acquired a strong thirst for my blood at that point. The next section of the hike was just stunning. There were huge pines and spruce and firs that towered above the rock formations covered in bright green ferns and other foliage. Then there were giant mountain tops and ridgelines above all that. It was one of the most majestic places I have ever been to. I really felt a great sense of gratitude to be there (and all alone!) at that time. After several miles and another 1000ft gain, I reached High Creek Camp. I stopped here for a short break and water fill for the final push. After High Creek, the switchbacks were relentless and brutal. I slowed down quite a bit after I hit 11k. Took a short rest just above the tree line and the sunshine felt so great up there. Made the final push to the summit through some cool areas with quite a bit of snow still left up there. Rested at the top and chatted with locals for a good 40 minutes before I headed back down. I felt great and was making a speedy pace, but my knees had other thoughts, so it was a slow and methodical decent instead. It took me just about 6 hours to summit and about 4 to get down. That includes many breaks going up and 15 minutes to fix my camelback tube. I was very impressed with myself and my pace and my California friend also was impressed that I tried to tackle this all in one day. There were far less people up there that I was expecting. Most people were just day hiking the mountain, but there were several groups of campers soaking up a few days. I would love to spend more time in this area. I will make sure to bring the bug spray.

Wanted a nice hike in the cool pines and got 1 out of 2. Trail starts near all the church and school camp grounds and then slowly goes into a more remote area. Very easy to follow path and signs the whole way. Everything was very lush and green. Saw a deer right away. Lots of "spruce" trees and loooots of oak. Thought about going up Union but didnt bring enough water for that extra distance and climb. Good thing too, because after I got past the tower on Spruce Mnt, it got pretty hot out, so that would have been pushing it.
A friend of mine says the sun affects you more at higher elevation because you are closer to the sun, but he may or may not also believe the earth is flat, so I'm not sure how that works.. but at 7000ft it felt hotter than 92.

Brought the boys and dog out for a few miles along the river.. Most of the hiking was 1/2 mile up and then we floated down and then back up over and over and over again.
