First trip of the season down the Salt (with Kelly and Branden). Flow at 890cfs when we started. Put in just before sunrise at Water Users and paddled down to Phon. Quite a few people fishing from land or wading in the river.

Never been on this trail before. I had limited time available, so we set out just to introduce ourselves to the trail. We went in about 2.25 miles, so missed the heart of the hike which is the waterfall(s). Although, we did enjoy the running water that was traveling through the canyon. Running water adds a nice sound effect to desert hikes.

Prime conditions on this beautiful Wednesday. Temps in the 20's and 30's, no wind and 41" of fresh dumped snow over the past week. Met up with Patrick and Jib in Phoenix around 5:30am and drove up north. Longer than expected lines due to spring break crowds.

Parked at Hwy88/1stWater trailhead. Started out towards Praying Hands then over to the mouth of Canyon of Waterfalls. Reached the Praying Hands at 30:00. Arrived at the finger spire atop the mostly dry falls at 56:20. Took a short break and was on my way back at 1:00:00. Arrived back at the trailhead at 1:42:45.

These days I mostly stick to my Reverse FI route. Decided to mix it up and throw in a traditional Siphon Draw ascent up to FI. Started at Hwy 88/First Water trailhead at 7am. Reached the nose of the iron at 8:43am. Enjoyed 10 minutes eating snacks and watching the chipmunks, then started back down the Draw. This route is really getting run out. Loose dirt and scree is everywhere, making footing decisions that much more important. Had to work around dozens of people who were going up, and made it back to the trailhead at 10:11am.

Sometimes 11 years goes by and you might think you've lost a few steps. Then, you set your mind to challenge that assumption, and at age 51, set a personal best. It wasn't by much, but I will take the 2m12s improvement. Even involved an unexpected stumble just past the 5 mile mark. Tore up my knee a bit and ripped my pants, but got up and kept on moving. The fifth mile was my fastest, under 11 minutes. The 7th mile was the hardest, but I closed out fast down the final 0.4.

Sixth day on the slopes this season and second at A-Basin. Got in a whole bunch of runs and racked up close to 14,000 feet vertical. Had some fun wearing the Garmin. Clocked a top speed of 41.9 mph coming down a blue run called Ramrod. Made my first ever tree runs through Miner's Glade in the Zuma Bowl (south side of the mountain). Both runs went well. Lots of moguls (and trees) to navigate through, but good control and quick decision making kept me out of the Sonny Bono Club.

My fifth day on the slopes of this winter season. Great to be back on Colorado powder. Great stuff at Loveland. Wide range of runs from low angle groomers for beginners, to steep challenging routes for the advanced. Plenty of fresh fluff to make it fun. A little windy at times, but not enough to ruin my good time. Spent most of the day running routes with Anna and discovering more advanced stuff for her to run as she improved with every run. Closed the day with a few routes to myself that included some of the wide open territory that is sometimes steep and bumpy. Wore myself out and called it a day. Tomorrow a day of rest, then day after that, back to Arapahoe Basin for more gnar.

Quite a day. Almost 10 hours on the mountain. My friend, Brent, started to cramp up at about 4100 feet on the ascent. He didn't like idea of going back down the off trail route, so we continued to the peak and then down Siphon. Brent was moving very slow and carefully and was able to avoid any falls or injury. It was a tough day for him, but at the same time he kept positive and enjoyed the views and the day long experience. After some more fitness training and trail runs, he wants to do this one with me again in 30 days to redeem himself.

First time on this one. Can't really get lost on this one since it goes straight up a canyon. That being said, it is very easy to lose the trail and end up in the bushes and fighting catclaw. There are rock cairns here and there, so it pays to stop and look around. We did much better following the trail on our return route, which also made for a much faster return. Its a pretty canyon with some nice spots to stop and take it all in. The road getting in there has its fun spots too. I recommend a 4-wheel drive although, you could probably get pretty far up without. Maybe not all the way to the true trailhead, but nothing wrong with adding a little extra mileage on foot.

Saturday was a good powder day (9" of overnight snow), but the park was crowded, more than I've ever seen. Routes like Rustler, Maverick and Crown Dancer were covered in chopped powder. By day two, the powder was mostly gone except on more lightly traveled runs on the far side of Apache Mountain. Sunday was much lighter on the crowd size. Groomed runs and still some choppy ungroomed runs. You could see the moguls a little clearer.

Not a lot of snow yet. 20" base. Thin groomed powder and only 7 trails open. Good skills day. Worked a lot of green runs and a couple blues. Ski without poles, with poles, practice pole planting technique on turns, backward skiing.

Did this one with Anna, Pete, and Chelsea. First Water lot was full. Started at Horse Lot. Garden Valley/Hackberry Spring Loop counterclockwise with a stop at the natural arch. Cool winter day. Cold in the shade, warm in the sun. Felt like an 8-10 degree drop at one point when we got into the Hackberry Spring area.

Beautfful hiking weather. Started at 7:15am with temps in the low 40's, sunny and no wind. Met up with Todd and Sarah and hiked to the Box. The creek was bone dry, the whole way. The pools in the Box have water, but it is very low and murky. Didn't matter. This is a great destination hike and the Box looks impressive no matter what. The lack of water, actually made travel easier. We spent a good hour just relaxing in the Box, eating lunch and enjoying the views.

Put in at 5:25am by headlamp at Snaggletooth Rapid. Take out at Goldfield. Millions of tiny moths to contend with down some stretches of the river. I accidentally consumed at least one. Other than that, the weather was beautiful. Early morning run down the Salt is always therapeutic.

Met up with Troy for his first trip down the Salt. Put in at WU and took out at PhonD. Casual pace today. Knocked it out in around 2 hours. First time seeing Dave and Jeanine since the rescue. They were pulling over to the right side, this time in a much safer spot. Flow rate 960cfs.

Met up with Patrick and Tommy. Tommy brought a different, bigger sit on top kayak which caused him fits. Had trouble wheeling it down to the water. Wheels kept on coming off. It was dark when we started. He hit a rock almost right from the beginning. He didn't tip, but got hung up for a minute. Later, at Foxtail eddy, his kayak hit the eddy, which is like hitting the brakes. His kayak spun to the right and tossed him out the left of his boat. Bet he will bring the little boat next time. 1260cfs on the flow today.
