We decided to hike a super loop through the heart of the ampitheater and take advantage of the pre-holiday weekend crowds. Hiked down Wall Street from Sunset Point then connected with the Peekaboo Loop hiking that clockwise. We had to wait until the family with 4 children decided which way they were going then we went the opposite way :) Hiked around Peekaboo and then up Navajo Loop arriving back at Sunset Point. Great hike with lots of hoo-doos and ya-hoos. It was nothing short of spectacular! We could have done without the wind blowing sand with 45+ mph gusts but nothing can take away from this the beauty of this canyon.

I just love Bryce.

Coerced a co-worker to go with me on this...somehow I doubt she'll ever hike with me again! :sl:

The drive to Rogers Trough freaked her out, especially at that BIG turn.....Hold on Dee, there's more fun to come!!!! Anyway, started at Roger's Trough TH and hiked out to Oak Flat area. I was originally contemplating doing this as a loop hike with the Spencer Spring trail but we did this as an out and back especially after reading previous write ups about the condition of the now defunct (?) Spencer Spring trail from 4 years ago. Decided I will wait until I get a working GPS, buddies who own a GPS and machetes that want to do THAT. We saw no other humans on the trail all day but saw and smelled evidence of a mountain lion.(prints and that musky smell) Thankfully didn't SEE the mountain lion. Parts of this trail were overgrown with cat claw and manzanita. It was a little chilly out there this weekend.

My Rebel and I had a date on Saturday to get out and play....in other words to get out and just see what this camera can do and most importantly, get myself acquainted with the settings. Spent all afternoon there and took over 300 pictures. No better way to learn a camera than to shoot in manual ALL DAY LONG. The urge was strong to switch it to auto but I resisted...some of the shots came out great, some were waaaay overexposed and some were really out of focus. Did two laps around and by the end of lap #1 I was feeling pretty comfortable with it although I still have tons to learn (and need more practice with my landscapes). Posted some pictures~~~not all 300! Used only my 18-55mm lens with a UV filter. Didn't even attempt the wide angle or telephoto, that's for another time.

Not sure where I should post this because I didn't see this exact route anywhere but on Friday 02-10-12 took Bluff Canyon Trail to the Dutchman through Charlebois, up Bull Pass back south again between Palomino and Black Top Mesa and up Peralta back to the TH. YIKES. Saw only a few people on the trail.....mostly at Freemont Saddle.

I was so pumped and motivated from my back to back 15 milers in the Supes the last two weekends that I got up at 5 AM this morning, did my work for my J-O-B and hit my tried and true Pass Mountain Loop.

Did my personal best on this trail and tore it up in 2 1/2 hours On the trail at 2:00, off the trail at 4:30. :y:

Second Water Trail#236-->Boulder Canyon #103-->Cavalry #239-->Dutchman #104-->Bull Pass #129-->Dutchman #104


Our party of 4 (Angela, Ambika, Hank and me) had been planning this hike for a couple of months now and had a beautiful day to do it. Left FW at 7:20 am and quickly made our way out Second Water to BC junction. Nice to see new signs at this junction! Headed south on BC to Cavalry with numerous creek crossings...there are small pools of water in the creek until we came upon a "lake". Just beautiful!! Ran into one group of 4 guys with their dogs heading north and had 2 people who passed us at the Calvary junction continuing on BC. Onward up the Calvary Trail!! Initially a small climb then the trail levels out....the Calvary is actually in really good shape and the views are amazing once you crossover Labarge Creek where there still is a decent amount of water. Beware the cholla, prickly pear and other thorny things on this trail as I managed to encounter ALL of them probably because I was too busy looking at the scenery and not watching where I was going....cholla embedded in my right knee, left shin and even attached to my boots! (Thanks Hank for helping remove these). At one creek crossing I decided to be Ms. smarty pants and found a place to cross but wound up in a thicket of catclaw and other thorny crap and I just plowed right through it, emerging a little scraped up and bleeding. No more short cuts for me! I met up with the prickly pear a little ways up the trail and stopped to pull those out~~~ Made it to the Dutchman junction, stopped for lunch and saw Daryl and his group come up the trail from Charlesbois and saw two hikers heading down toward Charlesbois which I later found out was William n Wendi. Next stop was Bull Pass where we ran into Claus from Iowa (Adventurelaus) who was doing a 2 day backpack trip and stopped to chat a bit. Bull Pass Trail was a nice shortcut and there is water here before you start the climb and at the saddle ran into a very friendly group of 8-9 on horseback heading to Charlesbois for an overnighter. "We have 90 beers do ya think that's enough?" Is that 90 beers including the ones who are drinking or 90 in addition to the ones you are drinking? They could have given us each a cold one and had 86 left which was probably more than enough but knew that I would probably just want to take a siesta on the side of the trail or stopped multiple time on the hike out (because beer is just rented)....All of a sudden we found ourselves on the Dutchman and made some quick time back to FW thinking about a cold beer! On the way out ran into some guys on horseback who really didn't know what trail they were on (is this trail #103? No, this is the Dutchman #104.) At Parker Pass saw a group of 4 guys who had just been up to Black Top Mesa.

All in all was a great time in my favorite playground and I got on two other trails I've always wanted to do in the western Supes~~~Calvary and Bull Pass. The scenery was outstanding as was the company. Thanks Angela, Ambika and Hank for making it a great day!

Annual 3rd "Chicks with Sticks" hike

Amazing loop hike in the Superstitions! This was the third annual "chicks with sticks" hike and usually we do the full Dutchman but this year opted to do something a little different. Hit two trails I'd never done before: Whiskey Springs and Red Tanks. Ambika said she had done this section years ago. The "chicks" who joined me today were Angela, Ambika, Linda and Michelle. And we brought the "peeps" too. Lovely day with some overcast skies and perfect temps, at least I knew we wouldn't fry out in the sun all day. Saw some of the ABC group at the TH. Made decent time to Miner's summit where we met everyone else hiking in the Supes today! Angela was waving to a group that was behind us thinking it was the ABC group but it wound up being a really cool group of middle aged/retired ladies from Scottsdale who were hiking Bluff Springs Loop. Nothing wrong with being social on the trail and we all got a laugh out of that! :sl: They were tearing up the trail behind us heading up to the summit..... seriously, they were moving at a good clip and arrived not 15 mins after we did. Then there was a really large group of about 20 people that arrived just after the ladies. We decided that 32 people at Miners Summit was a bit too much and now would be a great time to depart and we headed up (or should I say down?) Whiskey Springs......there was some water at the spring and a very green grassy area here. Arrived at Red Tanks junction where there is some water, mostly green scummy pools. Lunched here in the shadow of Picacho Butte. I looked east up Red Tanks and thought "oh I want to check that out one day real soon" but we headed northwest on Red Tanks and soon came to the junction of Dutchman where we met up with the ABC group and WENDY! Really nice to meet Wendy~~FINALLY. :y:

Red Tanks and Whiskey Spring trails are in great shape with very little overgrowth, Labarge Spring is flowing nicely, there is some moving water in the creek itself but not as much as I have seen in years past. Onward ladies!!! from the Dutchman to Bluff Spring which is bone dry. Some of our group was really starting to tire at this point. Bluff Springs to Terrapin junction, there are some small pools in Barks Canyon. The clouds broke up around 4:30 in the afternoon and we were able to get some great pictures and terrific lighting on Weavers Needle and in Peralta Canyon. We got through the worst of the upper reaches of cardiac hill with all that loose rock and hiked down the rest in the dark :pray: which we all survived. :thanx: Angela for leading the group out at this point and Ambika for sweeping.

Great day in my favorite playground and my favorite "chicks" and peeps. Saw no one else on Whiskey-Red Tanks and then only three backpackers on the Dutchman and a small group of campers near Bluff Spring. Saw no one from Terrapin all the way back to Peralta.

I really want to check out Upper Labarge Box as a multi day backpack trip sometime as it looks beautiful.

Great day in the Supes to kick off the new year! Suz asked for something that would give her a good cardio workout so we all decided to hike this. Our original plan was to go to Lower Labarge Box but some of us have various and assorted injuries so we set off to see what we could do comfortably today without over-extending ourselves and it was a perfect opportunity for me to try out my new camera! Clear and beautiful in the AM as we headed out from TH at Canyon Lake and up the hill and descended into Boulder Canyon. Dropped into the bone dry creek bed and started toward the box. The constant rock hopping was just a little too much for us injured folks so we decided to turn around~~~the box will have to wait for another day! As we were hiking out the wind kicked up something fierce and I almost lost my hat on several occasions.....all in all was a great hike and provided some much needed cardio!

Still trying to figure out the settings on this camera and my pics came out "average" so I won't post any as yet (Maybe next trip)~~~~

Don't know why I've never hiked this trail before but it was really nice. Hank had configured to do this as a figure 8 loop with one off trail section. We took one premature turn up a canyon....OOPS....wrong canyon! ;) I just laughed. Didn't see as many people on the trail as I expected for a Saturday which was nice. The area near the spring was really nice with many good camping spots. Saw one decent looking tarantula, no other wildlife. Another terrific day in the Supes!

Got off work at 5PM and had to blow off some steam so hiked the beginning of this in twilight and hiked the remainder out with my headlamp. Didn't have my camera with me but it was a beautiful sunset.

This was a combined effort from members of HAZ and also Arizonerhikers.com to put together a memory book for the Domin family....our memories of Joe Domin aka GPS Joe who went missing in the Matzatals in November 2010. The memory book was completed and sent to his son Christian just before Thanksgiving 2011 and the family has received it. This has been a work in progress for over a year.

Many HAZ& AZH people were involved in the search for Joe. So many people have been to the Mt Peeley TH since 11-2010.

I never would have been able to put this together without the help of Hank Luke aka "grasshopper" so thanks HANK!

Hank and I decided we should post it here as a generic trip and link it to the pictures and also to the Sheep Mountain trek, Joe's last known hike. We both think that the HAZ community needs to see the memory book as this book is from ALL of us. Remember that although I put the book together that this was given to the Domin family as a remembrance from the combined hiking communities of HAZ and AZH and not from just me.

Woke up at 4AM and decided to hike this morning. Got a 6AM start fueled by an espresso I made this morning(I normally don't drink caffeine). Slow going UP but made good time coming down.

My old standby. Nice to get back on the trails again after a 9 month hiatus. Ankle feels good!

FOUR CHICKS AND THREE PEEPS

Angela, Linda, Pam and I met at the quite deserted Peralta TH this morning. I've never seen this TH lot so empty at 9:00 AM on a Saturday morning which is probably due to the ominous looking cloud cover left over from yesterdays storm. Headed up Peralta to Freemont Saddle, out to the Needle Overlook and then back down Cave Trail. It was a chilly, breezy, overcast morning and we only saw a few people out on Peralta. We had one brief interlude of sun lasting all of 2 minutes while at the saddle. Headed down Cave Trail stopping at the first "cave" then onto Geronimo Cave. It's amazing how much fun 4 grown women can have with three peeps but let's just say that much laughter continued from that point on for the remainder of the day. :sl: When I'm 80 years old and see a peep I will just crack up laughing. When we got to the Devil's slide I innocently asked "and the trail goes where?" Angela showed me and I was thinking..."Are you kidding me?" I "hiked" this entire section on my butt. The bathtub....on my butt....bad man's forehead....on my butt. Made it through the rest of the day mostly on two feet and finally arrived at Bluff Springs Trail. YAHOO Terra Firma but then I forgot about cardiac hill :yuck:

It's been a while since I've been on this trail and I had forgotten how much I L-O-V-E cardiac hill. (insert sarcastic tone here)

This hike was a lot of fun although outside the norm for me as far as trail types........definitely worked every muscle in my legs.
More fun with peeps as we arrived back at the trailhead and only Angela's and Pam's pictures can tell the story!

Did this canyon today with Pam (Outdoor Lover) and Danila (a friend). Arrived at the TH and there was no one else there until 5 mins later when another hiker showed up, never saw her again. I previously hiked this canyon in '04, '05 and '06 when it was lush and beautiful. Now there is lots of deadfall and tree scarring from a fire that went through the area~~~not sure when that happened~~~possibly 2007? The deadfall makes the trail slow going and at times you really have to look to find the trail, especially in the upper reaches. Thankfully there are still blazes on some of the trees and others have built rock cairns in sketchier sections. I stopped at one spot and Danila and Pam continued on. After waiting for 1 1/2 hours I started to get concerned and started up the trail looking for them. Found Danila about 1/2 mile up the trail and Pam had continued on...appearing about 10 mins later. I think they just wanted to make me climb that big hill! We saw no one else all day until we were almost back at the TH. I struggled a little on this hike. Probably a combination of the elevation and the fact I really haven't been out for several months due to my torn ankle tendons earlier this year. The foliage that was out there on the surviving trees and regrowth was just about peaked so that didn't disappoint. Had a blast though and I don't think I've ever laughed as hard as I did today with this group. Perfect day with temps in the 70's. Stopped at Mackey's in Payson for really good "Verde Cheeseburgers". The drive back up Bush Highway was marked by all the dead little soldiers presumably taken out by all the partiers on their way back from Saguaro Lake. :sl:

Awesome hike through Chaco canyon, pretty much flat along Chaco Wash with all the elevation gain to the mesa and ruins. No shade that we could find so July or August could be brutal. We did a side trip to the petroglyphs which were really great. The Super Nova panel was tops on my list...perfectly preserved with the exception of the canyon swallow nests under the alcove.

I loved Penasco Blanco. The ruins are "as they are" and not extensively excavated or recreated. There is a simple peace as I wandered through this site...that's the best way I can describe the vibes.

The views are outstanding.

Loved it!
