Catching Up

My last blog entry was April 2019 as my AZT hike brought me to Flagstaff, AZ, my home town.

Things got complicated there and I was unable to finish the last 200 miles that year.

Tried again in 2020 but Covid hit and derailed that plan.

Here are some photos from the start of the 2020 hike (back at the Mexican border in March of 2020). Hiking with some old friends from the Appalachian Trail hike I did in 2016.

Sponge Bob, El Tejano, me, and Mr. Bean off trail.

So now it’s the spring of 2021 and I’m headed back to the Southern terminus of the AZT for more spring hiking.

This trip, I’ll be hiking with my son Peter, who has some time off this spring. We plan to start in a few days.

More to come..

    KW good luck to you and Pete. A bad day hiking is better than a good day in Covid lockdown.

      Hi, Tom. Gonna climb Matthews Peak on Day 1 – over 9000 feet, so we’ll definitely see snow!! Very excited to traverse the “sky islands” of southern AZ again.
