just more great views
a little candy striped rock
I call this one gorilla head
going down over here, boss
here's Jay taking an unscheduled break
a little clowning around
coupla' rock photos
and the shitter
just to break away for a minute. But a question has haunted me since I left AZ.... How many people are so ignorant that they have thrown lit cigarettes into the pit toilets at national parks? Every one you go near has 3 or 4 "No Smoking" signs on it & in it. Plus plenty of universal diagrams showing this. Who would even smoke in a pit toilet? Nevermind.
ooh, there's some down still to go
more trail - "I predict pain"
a great trail photo
there's our footbridge across the crik'
lotsa' red and lotsa switchbacks
please no more switchbacks
but they lead to views like these
a few more shots of Phantom Canyon
a gorgeous section of trail
followed by Paul with an unscheduled break
but sometimes you have to stop & just look around
other times there's work to be done
a helipad and a pumphouse and a little trail on the right
here I take a picture of someone taking a picture, Wow!
I call this one Insignificance
Jay looking for his pager
here Jay shows off his 5 lbs of trail mix
a few lbs of these mysteriously disappeared one night when he visited the facilities
this one is for all the ladies
if you think they look good, you should smell 'em!
sunset from Cottonwood
didn't even have to leave the campsite for this one
first light at Cottonwood CG
the first part of the trail just follows the creek
I repeat, you cannot protect people from themselves
another great photo op
a shady spot for lunch
where's the cactus, you say
