Our annual FULL DUTCHMAN hike this year!!! It was Elizabeth, Susan and myself. Really cold (about 30 degrees) this morning when we started out at 7:30 AM. There was quite a bit of water out there but not as spectacular as last year. Met up with some backpackers from Tucson backpacking club at Red Tanks trail near Charlesbois. Only saw a handful of other people out there including some guys panning for gold in one of the creeks. Delightful trip. Elizabeth's GPS measured 8 hrs 3 mins of moving time and 2 hours of stop/breaks.

Against all NPS postings that said to hike only to Roaring Springs as a day hike, I hiked all the way to Cottonwood Camp . It was no problem getting there as it was all downhill but climbing out was a bit of an exertion for me. This was AWESOME!!!! This was my first trip to the North Rim.

Well, it took me 6 weeks to post my hike description and a year to post my triplog and add pictures. Oh well.....guess I've been busy.

We met a nice elderly gentleman from Texas who took our picture at the TH. Maybe saw 16 people all day. This is a gorgeous hike with eye candy at every turn of the trail. Really windy...as a matter of fact it was so windy we met up with a young 20-something woman from Boston whose Bo-Sox hat blew off and was sitting 100 feet down a 45 degree scree slope and she was skittish about getting down there to retrieve it. So I showed her the "Arizona Butt-Scoot" and got it for her. HECK...this is a RED SOX cap and I couldn't leave it in the middle of Utah!

Awesome hike.....beautiful day for our last day in Bryce.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this trail. It was a little tough for me because I fell HARD in the Escalante River a few days earlier and messed up my knee but this was SO worth it. After we descended into the canyon, hiked amongst the hoodoos and saw the wall of windows....I was hooked. We spent lots of time taking pictures and enjoying the scenery but we are also on vacation so it wasn't about how much time it took us to hike it in or out. I was surprised at the amount of people on this trail. One of the "must do" trails in Bryce.

My cousin and I left Escalante and headed to Bryce Canyon. We got to the Bryce Canyon Visitor's Center at 11 AM and it is a balmy 38 degrees! We decided a few days earlier not to camp as planned but stayed in Tropic at a hotel. I don't mind the cold temps but my cousin can't stand anything below 40 degrees when camping. So we decide to do a drive through Bryce as "tourists" today and we have an AWESOME time. We start at Rainbow Point (over 9,000 feet) where there is several feet of snow along the trails....cue the snowball fight! The views are gorgeous along Bryce in this area with those red and white hoodoos, green pines and white snow....At Rainbow Point we meet up with a young German couple Roland and Tanya. They decide to make this little snowman and name him Dave. While Dave looks like he had a lobotomy at Rainbow Point, he quickly recovers and we meet up with Tanya, Roland and "Dave" at the next pull out point, Black Birch Canyon. They brought "Dave". Now Dave has a beret to cover his lobotomy. We all take pictures and head down to the next point "Ponderosa Canyon". "Dave" appears AGAIN and we all get pictures. Tanya, Roland and Dave are a total hoot and must think Americans are easily amused by bringing a 6 inch snowman they named "Dave" from outlook to outlook. We did loose our German friends as we progressed down the road and never saw them again but I did manage to get a picture of them with "Dave".

By the time we got to Fairview Canyon it started to get very overcast AND STARTED TO SNOW so we just went back to Tropic and planned our hikes for the next several days. Peekaboo tomorrow, Fairyland Loop on Wednesday. I'm so excited to be able to spend two entire days in this canyon!!!!

What a spectacular day in the Supes with Susan, Michelle and Ambika. Like everyone else said...the is water everywhere. Loved LaBarge Canyon and it's all green right now. So get out there soon. Long day but met up with nice people all along the trail. Met THE Jack Carlson (yes, the author of Hiker's Guide to the Superstitions) at First Water TH.....what a delightful man. Ambika's GPS recorded this as 17.9 miles.

Went down the Dutchman to Boulder Basin with my friend and two 13 y/o's. Lots of water in the normally dry washes which was a real change from last week. Loved it!!! Boulder basin was flooded with water. I do LOVE to hear water rushing in the Superstitions.

Hiked out from FW trailhead to Boulder Basin and back. Perfect day for a hike! Saw lots of very friendly people on the trail. With all this rain I might have to go back next weekend

Nice hike with a few friends from work......saw "hiking Barbie" on the trail. No pack or H20 with her...just looking cute in a color coordinated skimpy outfit, dripping in gold jewelery, full make-up. Seriously WHO hikes like that? We laughed all the way back to the trailhead.

Just an FYI the admittance fee is now $26 per person but the views are no less gorgeous...It's worth EVERY penny. We arrived at 9:15 AM with the "tour" leaving at 9:30.....HURRY UP MICHELLE!!! I had to show Michelle this canyon since she had never seen it before. We spent 1 1/2 hours down here and to seal the deal was that we saw a snake on the way out. The "Snake Charmer" strikes again! It was a small snake and not a rattlesnake...just a foot long little guy looking for a cool place to hide. Our Navajo Tour guide HATES snakes and disappeared at this point but we four women (me, Michelle and two German tourists) forged on...snake and all!

This trip originally started out planned as a modified Cabin Loop backpack trip with our intended route to be Ubar to Barbershop and up Houston Brothers. This was modified after we got our packs on and started to hike in due to a pack malfunction (mine). It was within the first ½ mile or when we got to Pinchot Cabin that I knew something was wrong. My shoulders ached horribly and we stopped to adjust my pack, load straps OK.... shoulder straps OK.....waist belt OK. So what's the problem? I'm only carrying 33 pounds and have toted this Kelty Shadow 4500 backpack to Reavis Ranch, Haunted Canyon and numerable other backpacks with no problem and up to 40 pounds. Decided at this point to take Houston Brothers and do the backpack counterclockwise since Houston Brothers is pretty flat. About ½ way to Aspen Springs, the pain across my shoulders set in again with me having to drop my pack twice in the 2 mile trek to Aspen Springs. We get to the springs and decide to just set up camp there. The trek in was beautiful other than my pack difficulties and once we set up camp there, I notice that one of the aluminum stays in my pack is severely bent in the scapula area which accounts for the pressure it was loading on my shoulder blades. I pulled the stay out and am wondering how in the heck it got so bent? Well, that's OK....we decide to camp here and opt for plan B. There is no way we would be able to pull off 16 miles on Saturday and Sunday so we decided to just do a day hike down Houston Brothers on Saturday and see how my pack did without the offending stay in it and with a load. It would mean much less support but at least no searing pain across my back.

Friday night was blissful at Aspen Spring. Water was running well there. Temps cooled off quickly and were in the 40's that evening which are just cool enough to warm by a fire but not freezing. T-storm rolled nearby around 6:30 PM and there was still lightening when I crawled into my tent at 8:30 PM. I slept like a baby due to some Tylenol PM! Woke to a beautiful blue sky Saturday morning, loaded up my pack with about 25 pounds of stuff and off we set down Houston Brothers. PRETTY trail with a gradual elevation all the way until after you cross FR 139A and then it's another 1.5 miles or so to the intersection with the Barbershop Trail. The trail was easy to follow as it meanders through Houston Draw...sometimes hiking in the open meadow, but most times hiking under a canopy of pines with interspersed quaking aspens. The ferns were almost 5' tall and I easily could have lost myself in them because I'm only 5'1". My pack felt fine with 25 pounds and without that annoying bent stay. There's lots of water in the draw, nothing after that as we observed. Starting hearing thunder around 12:30 and saw storm clouds building to our north so we turned around and headed back to Aspen Springs. Got rained on a little as we crossed one of the meadows and spent another nice evening at Aspen Springs with rumbling thunder all evening but no heavy rain. Ran into 4 other backpackers on this trail and 4 day hikers who started early from General Springs and were day hiking the Fred Haught-->Houston Bros-->FR 300 and back to General Springs. Hiked out Sunday morning with my full pack load with no problems, even with the stay removed.

Took my brother Michael and his girlfriend Dawna (visiting from Maine) on this hike today. And it reminded them of Maine with all the pines. They were blown away that you can drive a couple of hours from Phoenix and go from desert to forest. They wanted something easy and scenic so this nice little trail and perfect weather filled our requirements. We accessed the TH from FR 139A off FR 95 just after you cross East Clear Creek and Houston Draw (formerly I believe it said Morgan Draw)and parked near access to the Fred Haught Trail. We started at the sign for Pinchot Cabin and then onto the Houston Brothers trail all along the way we spotted a variety of wildflowers...some wild roses, Rocky Mountain irises, yellow columbine, lupine and deer's ears. I haven't been on this trail since 2005 and when we arrived at Aspen Spring, we saw that the old outhouse that was once here is now gone although the fireplace and corral building were still intact. The spring was flowing nicely. Someone camped here last night and LEFT A HOT FIRE GOING IN THE FIREPIT which really is totally irresponsible and really peeved me. It was quite windy today and red hot sparks were flying everywhere, not to mention there was still a HUGE piece of wood still smoking in the pit. There is water in a creek not 100 feet from the pit so I went down to the creek 4-5 times and filled up an empty ziploc bag from my pack and put the fire out. We brought the smoking piece of wood to the creek and put it out there.

Met some fellow HAZers, Tim & Carolyn, at Aspen Spring who were continuing on down Houston Brothers. Nice to meet you both!

This was a terrific day hiking under the pines with my family.

My brother and his girlfriend are visiting from Maine and it is her first trip to the desert SW. So we decided that this would be just the thing to show her the native flora and fauna. We had a wonderful day under overcast skies, temps in the 90's a little bit of a breeze. Spent a couple of hours here and then headed to Tonto National Monument (lower dwellings were closed due to BEES) and a drive back on the Apache Trail. Fish Creek Hill freaked both of them out a little :D

Lower Cliff dwellings are closed due to a BEE infestation. Ranger told us there were two nests the size of basketballs up there. You can still hike a short way up the trail. Was a little disappointed because my brother and his girlfriend are visiting from Maine and I wanted to show them some ruins without taking them on a death march.

It was a toasty 96 degrees yesterday so we opted to do an adventure at the Island in the Sky district.....today was much more pleasant and in the 80's. My cousin from Pennsylvania was with me on this trip and we set out from Elephant Hill TH around 3 PM and trekked out to Chesler Park and back, finishing around 6 PM. I love this hike.

If petroglyphs are your passion and hiking through several miles of sand another, then this is the ticket. There are some nice areas of shade under the cottonwoods in the canyon but it still is a hot and exposed hike. I guess if you want to see the finer things and the amazing things this is also the hike for you. It is a long drive and a hike I've wanted to do since last year. Totally amazing when you figure that the petroglyphs are at least 2,000 years old.

This was my first trip to Coyote Buttes North and "The Wave" due to meeting up with Paul and Irma. Paul had permits and graciously shared them with us. Mary and I had driven to Page Friday night and spent Saturday in Lower Antelope Canyon and did a road trip to Lee's Ferry and Cliff Dwellers. Met up with Paul and Irma Sunday morning at the ranger station 30 miles west of Page. Drove to House Rock Valley Road to Wire Pass TH which was passable and covered in a dusting of snow. It was gorgeous to see the contrast of desert brush, red rocks, white snow and blue sky with puffy clouds but it also meant cold temperatures and it was about 30 degrees when we finally arrived and got settled for out hike at Wirepass. I'm a desert rat at heart so this was darned cold for me but I layered up and off we set. As we set off on the trail it became apparent to me that it would be very easy to get lost out in these parts although the trail is very well well worn for the first mile. After that it becomes a cross country trek over rock and through sand but thankfully there are cairns placed sporadically across the slickrock. Paul had been out here before and had a great map provided by the BLM that showed landmarks to watch for. The twin buttes and the notch and FINALLY the Wave itself. I was totally BLOWN AWAY once we arrived there and I had a chance to see it in person and no pictures can capture the WOW factor. We explored all over that area, found a hamburger rock, an arch and froze our butts off in the cold with the wind. The colors were outstanding.....deep sepia, a lighter rose, white and an olive green. It was amazing. It seemed much longer than 3 miles on the way in but we made it out in about an hour trudging through my favorite thing.....sand. It was well worth it. So this particular weekend I got to hike a slot and ride a wave. Life is GOOD!
