After a climb back to Montezuma Pass we started to climb Miller Peak in the Huachuca mountains (part of southern Arizona’s “sky islands”)
We went from the desert to an alpine setting pretty quickly
We had about 8 miles in packed slippery snow and finally started to descend to a warmer area where we could camp.
Met this cool fellow who is an Apache from Cibeque out on the trail because it was on his bucket list. He was not hiking with traditional equipment, but he was determined and enthusiastic
So happy to see a Native American fellow on one of our national scenic trails!!!
Great photos! It is amazing how quickly you get right back in the groove!
