some cars (6?) at the carney t/h and saw one person coming down carney, another coming up peralta, but nobody in between. seemed like a good enough Saturday to get in a quick 8 miles in the Supes. felt odd seeing basically nobody on peralta. that's a first... peralta road is in damn fine shape. was 96 when we finished. great day!

trail canyon> charleston peak> south loop
great hike! 18.2 miles w/ this loop. last mile requires a walk back to the parking lot. snow patches, sketchy passing across slushy snow on a 45 degree slope that could only end badly if you fell... cave spring was flowing a quart a minute, snowmelt was welcome way to fill our bladders (treated w/ aquatabs). camped along telegraph road which is passable in good conditions w/ a small SUV. views along some sections of trail canyon were epic. looking down on vegas from the north loop was super scenic. granite-gnarly out there, plenty of photo ops. the south trail was bland in comparison. saw the plane crash, made our way down the switchbacks to the car in about 9 hours at a reasonable pace. summit was (as usual) a blast! literally 40mph blast... what a gem for the locals. this mountain is FUN. prolly one of Pickle's and I favorite hikes this year!

ma nature showed us her bad temper. got SO close to the peak, turned around from fighting 40mph winds carrying sleet and snow. good choice, I believe. ah, jacinto will still be there next time I summit her. still, a superb hike and lotsa memories. neither Lesa nor I have done 9,700' in one day, so that was a record (that needs to be broken). :D

guess you cannot have Piestewa without te-wa. Pickles and i ran into the wiley and elusive Teva Joe. an easy, quick city hike that I like to do on occasion. was my first hike ever, in this amazing Arizona. circa May 1978.

the memories remain.

quick getaway from the city. took my new pack for a maiden overnight. stayed at the large cascade in bear camp. saw few people after the romero pools. slept well to the sounds of gushing water. a nice place, considering so close to Tucson - was aiming for the pass, maybe WOR junction, but found this water fall and called it "good enough" :D
will be back to the Catties this summer for sure. always a fun area.

this was a good enough overnighter. thought about deer creek, but wanted some gains. a gradual climb tests the legs. no problem, if you're avid. you'll prolly spy AZT folk in april. water from snowmelt still visible. almost all crossing had a trickle. good news, for such exposure. i hit the perfect weekend with highs in the 60's. clouds helped along the way. if i were to do this again, push on to the Horse Camp seep, and take in much better views. still not sure what significance "the Park" holds, and why it's on a map. all in all, a decent hike with good heart-pumping although moderate/consistent grade. 3/5 kokopellis.

did the miner's needle loop C-CW but also threw in the miner's (nearly) summit, and then up the cave trail to geronimo for fun. about 13 miles. saw several familiar faces.

quickie w/ @pickles (lesa) and theatrix (lauren). easy to access, pick your way down from the end of the dirt road/cul-de-sac and stay near or in the canyon bottom most the way. a bit of catclaw, not a major hindrance. no cholla or other nasties to contend with, for the most part. canyon has a few bends, a few highlights, a couple cool arches and a bit of alcove exploration is recommended. this is not a destination hike for me, just a place to poke the head around a bit. I feel it would be a good introduction to off-trail hiking in this area. around 5 miles from the eastern t/h to the salt river and back. for a more substantial hike, i'd add @adilling route or even combine the official route up black cross and back down to make a loop. good to see another HAZ sticker at the t/h - and to meet the owner @hikerdw in the canyon. also, even though this is a fairly hidden gem, we saw about 5 others down there today. it's getting more rare to get away from "crowds". 3 of the hikers we met had never heard of HikeArizona.com... can you imagine?!

an unexpected early departure from this thing called "work" had me packing the boat on the truck and on my way to Canyon by noon. there was one other car at acacia, and just one boat on the water. I made the decision to paddle to Blue Tank just a few hours before I arrived at it's welcoming entrance. stashed the kayak and loaded up my backpack. a few minutes in, you'll find a cool section of narrows that (like others said) is a nice introduction to Blue Tank.. a 15' tall scramble up and over some lodged boulders that are not particularly hard to ascend, but would not be for someone with no bouldering experience. past those rocks, the trail goes thru some narrow sections for a hundred yards or so and then opens up around a bend into a neat bedrock area in the middle of this "S" shaped bend part of the canyon. water was here, clean and inviting. I kept thinking this area should be prime for a cougar hunting ground, waiting for those bighorns to take their last sip of the day. alert.. as much as I could be after paddling an easy 5 miles, I stayed focused on the rock-hopping and bushwhacking ahead of me. there are a couple more scrambly sections you must endure, one a 15' high but easy to climb rock choke, at 1 mile another a huge car sized boulder jam with another clear pool below them. I made my way to the left, pushing thru streamside bushes until I got around. I saw one other set of bootprints in the sand in a few spots, some other hardy adventurer set out to tackle Blue Tank as well. from the satellite view I remember a section maybe 150 yards long that showed a small grove of trees. sure enough, I was right in assuming they would be cottonwood. these trees love water so I expected to find some here, and I was correct. not any observable flows but good pools at least. I now had scraped, bruised and tired myself to the 1.5 mile point, just shy of the confluence with Hells Hip canyon. time to make it a day, I set up my camp. did all the camping chores one would normally do and then slept a solid 9 hrs in my hammock. a great choice of areas to discover, and the cloudy evening kept me comfortable with a low of around 55.

I had been looking at this canyon and wondering if I should ever attempt doing a kayamp here. I was glad to squeeze the trigger on this one. it's a hidden gem!


after breaking camp, it's back down the canyon to my parked ride home. going down, same alert mode to stay alive. it's a long way out of here with a broke ankle.. one of the best moments of this trip: alone on a still, glasslike lake for at least the first 2 miles. I saw another boat at the "Point" and a couple others after that one. the paddle back seemed twice as long as yesterday. although not seemingly long or challenging, i was a bit more wore-out than anticipated. to do this trip in one day would be pretty rough on anyone. one of the best solo overnight kayamps, and will live in my memories for some time!

took the te-wa-ettes to the intersection of telly and icehouse (not the beer, that's gross) for a quick getaway. camped there. within seconds, saw two stately mule deer does. nothing else after that. spring box closeby is full. creek had 2 gal. per minute flow. 45 for a low. good time!
hello to Bruce, Joe and Bob, who got there a bit earlier. and hiked a lot harder, i'm sure. :D

fun trip w/ maddie, lesa, kids, and mr. white. a great intro to boulder hopping. what lies beyone the "cave" is the real gem. spend a night out here and hike in at least 4 miles, then return to tortilla flat for a beef enchilada and SNPA.

up from the parking area, we stayed in creek mostly to enjoy the experience. after all, off trail is the goal here. we climbed to the jam section, up to the impassable (to us) 25' dryfall. back out and to the east, we left geronimo and kept going up the sometimes bushy hillside/canyon to reach the trail for geronimo head. had lunch at the saddle, looking down into geronimo canyon proper. decided to go southeast, pick up the first drainage headed towards tortilla, and eventually dumped into geronimo again, just a couple hundred feet from the road.
nice little off trail scramble in the area.

Lesa convinced me, after doing Wrightson a couple weeks back, that we need to continue climbing respectable peaks. I slipped and mentioned Mazzie peak as being, in my memory, a "pain in the ass". so naturally, she loves the idea of a challenge and jots it down on the bucket list. i should know by now when to keep my mouth shut. :o
we hit this trail at 9:20 thinking it would be an easy assault from the southern flanks coming up from cactus saddle. having a quick snack break here (#2, the first about 2 miles in along shake tree) we were ready to scoot booty up the path we agreed upon from the bottom. scrambling up and pushwhacking (yes, with a P) we mostly followed the route we scouted from the bottom. there were a bit of non-agreeable areas that we had to skirt around. no problems, yet. it was slow going, steep and tested our navigation skills. not too bad, obvious routes exist and you can make good or bad choices here, depending on how well you pick a point in the distance, follow it, then continue in this fashion. there are cairns along the way but following most of them seems fruitless since there are a dozen ways to skin this cat. just head UP, staying away from cliffs and a big manzanita forest that grows closer to the top 2/3 of the ridge. we stopped for a bit about halfway up, and were greeted by an amazing although short-lived airshow! one, then 2 F-16 falcons came ripping out of deadman canyon and across the mazzy peak area UPSIDE DOWN and then did a half-roll to right themselves only to scream past us and over a ridge towards mt. peeley and out of sight deep into another canyon (deer creek, iirc). it was quite the sight. the fighters were prolly within 6-700 feet of us, and i could clearly see the pilot. LOUD.
so, pushing on, we found our way to the top of this ridge and continued on to the peak, now with fast moving clouds dropping light rain. up top, photos of course.. then a quick snack, trip register autographs and thumbing through the list i noticed several of our own HAZ member's scribblings. at this point i had already suggested following John's route down so we took suicide ridge around the bend and headed down into the ravine just before that area where 2 drainages converge. here, we scrambled and hopped boulders for likely a mile, mile and a half pushing our tired bodies to pick up the barnhardt trail, and both of us thankful that it would be a quick 4 miles back to the truck. barnhardt has this funny tendency to feel easy going up, and short, to the saddle/intersection with the divide trail, but hella longer going back out and downhill. funny, that! we passed a few twenty-something preppy kids coming in, and after i told them where this trail stops, and made sure they had provisions and a headlamp especially, made our way up to the big kahuna, and back to the vehicle. all 8 hours 45 minutes of a big ol, ass kicking hike. it was mostly dark when we arrived, then drove out towards mesa to watch a rising full moon. following John Fritz' route might not be the easiest or most rewarding way to do this trip (we did fritzski's loop in reverse this time) but it felt good. it felt old school. it was worth it. now, to keep my mouth shut before i slip and mention something like R2R2R so that will be penciled in, some where, on some calender, soon. :scared:
GREAT trip. it's 5 stars all day long. GREAT company, Lesa is a stormtrooper. i kept feeling the need to compare this trip to Wrightson, but it's definitely tougher. we'll come up with a hike that surpasses this one in epic views, awesome scrambling, intense satisfaction.... but it won't be easy. rincon peak, perhaps?

started at the lovely See canyon trailhead. wanted to get some leg burnin' miles in this area before the season ends. ok, i've been eyeballing the Horton Spring trail, which drops down off FR300 in breakneck fashion. this trail is nowhere near as popular as See, Col. Devin, Babe Haught, etc.. so you will have to pay attention to route finding. it basically follows a long, southerly path down a finger pointing towards Horton Spring. so after reaching the spring area, i sourced a good camping spot far away from the 30 boy scouts out here for the night. next day after a gahzillion stars and some good grub, and even better "alone time" i went on about the Highline headed back to See t.h.
met a couple of interesting people, had some good convo with another. fun weekend. didn't think about work the entire time. so, there's that. :D
the 14 miles is a good guess of the trails i took which are: see canyon, 3.5 - rim road 300 2.5 - horton springs 1.25 - highline back to see, 7.

t'was my 3rd backpacking trip, and my 1rst solo backpack - sycamore rim loop. i decided after 17 years i'd go check out the area once more. kinda romantic, i guess.
anyway, saw some things that i did not notice before.. or don't remember, but most of the scenery seemed familiar. for instance, i wanted to go up to one of the tanks to re-visit that tiny aspen "grove?" that hugged the southwest bank of tank # 4 (i'll call it) which has seemingly died, the old trees are lifeless but have now entered the circle, as juvenile 7' aspens are springing up amongst their corpses full of shimmering pride.

i also don't recall seeing so much trail exposed to interesting views, so that was a nice touch.. as if it were my fist time.
round the bend i found a nice stand of ponderosa trapped on a knoll between baby-creeks at the last, northernmost pond. fire out, hammock up, eyes shut. took the road back to the car, as i can't say climbing knob hill was interesting enough. ended with a home-brewed oatmeal stout before i had a quick snack, looked around, and headed home.

*there were some water holes and trickles in both shallow canyons along the rim trail. double tanks has a few clear pools.
*the strangest sound i've ever heard in 18 years of backpacking: something was coming up canyon near start of the hike, just before the old sawmill. sounded like a million angry hornets, and i had to stop in my tracks to figure out where it was coming from, and how fast. it was way too fast for any natural produced sound.. but in a few seconds i saw a tiny buzz-saw quadcopter screaming down canyon when it formed a well-controlled loose turn around me nearly at 100' high. SO... i think using a drone w/ a camera might just be the newest, bestest way to search for big game during hunting season. or, google maps has stepped up their game!

so it's a rough road. and.... it's an unmaintained old ass road on top of the rim. gets a bunch of seasonal snow and rain. and mostly used by hunters in the fall. i never needed 4wd for any section of the 4 miles in, it was dry.
the trail leading down is the easiest, imho, of the 4 that reach the bottom of chevelon canyon in this area. a straight, mild grade about 1/2 mile to the bottom. here you can find plenty of hanging trees and a few eyesore campspots with fire rings, most of them not 1 yard off the trail. by the way, the fishing here sucks. don't go. it's a waste of time. go to woods canyon instead.

we saw no others at the bottom. caught and released several native trout, 13" being the smallest of the lot.
