Camped near the lookout tower up on the rim and started down See in the morning. No alarm clock needed, 4:15AM and those birds were on one. The descent didnt seem that steep at all, was pretty easy going down. About 1/2 mile down the bugs were real bad. Cant see ems in swarms, every time I brushed up against some leaves, it seemed like another hundred joined the main swarm as it continued down the canyon with me. At some point, you just give in and accept the uncomfortableness. Passed through some beautiful fern areas where the sunshine got to come though the trees and cliffs finally and you get that deep forest smell. It felt perfect. Christopher Creek was flowing nice the whole way. Lots of deadfall along the trail, I lost count of how many trees I hopped over. Passed the only other hiker I saw all day near See Spring. The highline section was awesome. LOTS of bear tracks. Beautiful trail. For the most part flat ground and soft dirt. More bear tracks. Great views once it climbs up out of the trees. The climb up Drew was very steep as expected, but nothing a few 30 second breathers couldnt get through and I felt very strong. The road walk back was uneventful and a little toasty but I did take a break on the edge of the rim becasue that's what you do. The lookout tower was all chained up but I could see the windows were open up there. Ill be back up here in a couple weeks for a real adventure.

Been really liking this connector trail. Funny looks from the golfers change after they slice into the desert. The best part is exploring down through the brush between the fairways. Decided to stretch it out a bit more with a loop around Lookout. Took a break on some fairway. Fantastic weather, can it stay like this forever?

Wanted to do the whole National Trail but decided to adding a bit more AEG by starting off with the Guadalupe ridge and paid for it. Wearing a full 25lbs pack I made it up about 1.5 miles in one hour and knew I wasnt going to make the whole thing. Once I dropped into Hidden Valley and National Trail, it was easy street. Los of mountain bikers as usual.

I remember lots of burned areas and only saw 3 people the entire 2 days out there. Hoolie and Red Tanks trail faint in some areas because it all looks the same now. Water everywhere at time of hike. Camped at Reeds Water.

An old favorite. Really terrible about the fire damage.. wow. Its always nice to come up the hill to garden valley and how green it is. I never thought I would miss cholla so much. Surprised to see so much water in Boulder Creek. Not just pools but really a lot of flow. Passed several groups camping along the trail, as usual. Trail is, as usual, in good shape. Love the back and forth. Didnt see anyone until Parkers Pass and First Water where the people, horses, and dogs all were hiking and playing in the water. It was a great day and a nice taste of the Supes to be inspired to go out the next weekend for a bigger bite.

Another hike/ climb on the outskirt ridge of the park. Perfect weather and a lot of other people thought so, too. Cant imagine doing the summit.

First time in the Sierra Anchas. Very cold and very wet and very overgrown. After slipping and falling (literally body on the ground) 8 times I decided to call it a day. Felt very alone.

Felt like I havent been in this park in forever. Went up a section of Mohave and a couple peaks that I had never been to before. Loads of people on the 8A.. thought about hitting Dixie Peak, but my legs were so sore from a brutal legs day yesterday. Stopped by the end of the parking lot to see the remodel. They got rid of 6 parking spots and added.. 6 parking spots. Nice look, though.

2nd attempt to the summit was a success. Shade in the AM on the NW side of the mountains, after that, there is zero shade the entire hike. Pretty uneventful slog to the saddle for a breather and then the finish to the top. One abandoned Chevy Suburban at the summit. The educational signs have been destroyed by the sun. Nice views up top. Views of farther ranges were obscured by haze. Saw a bunch of hawks at the top and a funky centipede on the decent. Not another soul until I got very near the parking lot and met, yup.. a Canadian couple.

Another check mark for bagged peaks. Decided to make the most of it and do the whole loop. Was just about as I expected. The cable portions were very fun. Chatted with some Tucsonians at the summit. Hunter Trail going down? was very intense. Very little traffic jams up there as there were very few people that morning. Weather was great, a little toasty on the road walk back. Dead phone battery = =no route scout and no photos :( I really loved the adventure of this one. This is one you take someone from out of state to impress.

Real nice, easy hike around the lake with the pooch. I had never ventured to the southern part of the lake before. Was surprised to see a nice flat area with some benches and picnic area. The trail on the west side of the lake is more rugged than the east side.

Slacking on hike logs lately.. This was a beat the heat hike among the pines and junipers. Quick stroll over to Oak Spring and back from Pine TH.

Havent hiked in for-ev-ver.. WStarted at pine TH and went up to Dripping springs and then back down to the Highline for a few miles and then back. Pine View reminded me of hiking the lower Sierras. iPhone is busted so no photos or routes but trust me it was a great day.

Have never been here and it was really cool. Went up and over the bridge and then down and under and back up for about a 1.5 mile loop (if that). I actually had the whole place to myself while I was underneath. Water dripping everywhere and very slippery with algae/moss. Actually fairly challenging route finding and bouldering that I would not expect from a state park. Phone is busted so no photos or routes right now.

Solo dolo down SK, 2.5 hours to the river. Swim at the beach for an hour. The canyon runner population has exploded. I love the river trail, its so easy going. Hot slog up to IG for about an hour break/siesta. Lots of wildlife. About 3 hours up to the top. Good to see all the youth out enjoying the outdoors. Quads were toast at the Coconino. Definitely slower than my last time up BA, but I did go to the river this time and it was a longer hike, so there's that. I enjoyed taking my time with this one.
