Dam bro. You've been out there getting it done! That's awesome! The only thing I'm disappointed in is that you didn't get the dog a bacon cheeseburger. I'm sure the aftermath would've been great lol.

HA that would have been a mess !

The 3 week break sucked I was planning on having my milestone hike to complete the preserve done by now :( but needed to ease back into it a bit. Knee felt solid after this weekend, I think I will go for one more 10-12 miler before taking on the big one. With our temps lately I might be headed north sooner than expected. Pushing 80 degrees for the next week so it is sunrise or bust lol.


I also am kicking around the idea of completing the 808 mile AZ Trail sometime in the next couple years. It is 43 passages that run from the southern border with Mexico all the way through the center of the state up to the northern border with Utah I would do over the weekends mostly as day hikes of 11-26 miles, a few of the passages I would have to do as overnight backpack trips due to access and location of trailheads. I am in the initial stages of looking at the passages and looking at logistics. I would also like to hike and raise funds for a charity so starting to look at different charities and best way to do it like go fund me and social media etc. The charity piece provides good motivation to finish the trail and goes to a good cause. I have been fortunate to do so cool stuff in my life, but I think this would be one of the coolest stories I could tell completing the trail.

Good example that shows that the desert is not just a dry arid wasteland like some people want to think. This is 20 miles due north from my place. Elevation 2900-4100 feet. This area was devastated by the cave creek complex fire in 2005 which is still the 3rd or 4th biggest wildfire in state history. There was still evidence of the fire but for the most part the area has recovered. Keep in mind we have had an unusually dry winter so far with something like .5 inch of rain vs 2.5 normal ytd, the creek is low but still running. Looks like we have some rain in the forecast this week which should help.

Not too often you run across a crested saguaro, this one with multiple crests was spectacular.

Switch from riparian area into high desert 3600-4100 feet
Skull Mesa, Seen in previous hikes from the other side. This is a future hike, supposed to be a bunch of Indian ruins up there.

Entire hill is green, Ponderosa Pines start making their appearances around 4k elevation

Wonder who this AB fellow was, the area is littered with former prospect sites on the USGS Topo map so best guess is a prospector along the creek looking for gold.

Our seasons are confused, it is February and still signs of fall along the creek
