Trails

Late in Phoenix

I had attempted to participate in a group run last year while attending this conference. This year, at least, I managed to find the after party at the San Tan Brewery.

Finally, I drove back up on 89 to FS 776, took the dirt road in about a mile and set up camp for the first time in months. The crunch of the black volcanic stand is almost as loud as my racing heart. It’s hard to get sleep at 7000 ft.

Kachina Peaks

Having met my quota for falling, I promptly turned around, relieved, and headed back down the trail to my car. I waved at one of the hikers I had seen earlier, whom I had parked next to, and ran back down towards the Arizona trail.
