11/21/21 28 miles Yesterday Alan's back was feeling a bit tweaked, and this morning it's worse- pain bad enough that he's worried about moving the wrong way and having an old back injury flare up. He wants to be super careful with his movements, which means that, at least for now, he can't keep hiking. … Continue reading Arizona trail day 38: kentucky camp
11/20/21 18 miles I toss and turn all night. Is it the very bad day? The full moon like a lantern in my eyes? The fact that I forgot to drink magnesium powder before bed, so my tired leg muscles are achey and I can't get comfortable? Who knows. I'm relieved when it's finally 5:30 … Continue reading Arizona trail day 37: Vail
11/19/21 22 miles My alarm goes off before I've had enough sleep. I stayed up chatting with Sirius and writing my blog, and I already know, as I run my hands through my salty, greasy hair, that I'm gonna be wrecked today. It was worth it tho- seeing friends on trail is so fun! We … Continue reading Arizona trail day 36: micah mtn

11/19/21 25 miles My clothes are fucked. We're at hutch's pool, a beautiful swimming hole on the AZT- maybe the only swimming hole on the AZT? Sitting in the sparkling sand next to the clear water that flows between the high granite walls, and I am trying, and failing, to pick the velcro-like seedheads of … Continue reading Arizona trail day 35: hutch’s pool
11/17/21 19 miles I sleep in and when I wake it's 6:30 and the sun is rising, leaking over the horizon like a raw egg yolk. It was properly cold last night and moony and I was so cozy in my bag and I slept so good. And now I get to hike with my … Continue reading Arizona trail day 34: mt lemmon
11/16/21 10 miles Someone's alarm goes off in the dark cabin at 5:55 a.m. Noooo! That's ok through, I don't mind being awake. The world is so cool and full of such cool things! Shade makes a pot of motel coffee and I drink some out of my silicone camp cup and that's great too. … Continue reading Arizona trail day 33: rattlesnake, period, sunset, perfect day
11/15/21 19 miles In spite of the day's heat, our camp next to the water trough is cold enough that I have to actually get inside my sleeping bag and zip it up. I forgot how cozy and comfortable this is, and I experience a wave of pleasure as I cinch the hood around my … Continue reading Arizona trail day 32: heat, again
11/14/21 24 miles In the middle of the night when I wake to pee the moon is there, shining brightly in my face. The moon! Our friend the moon is back! A little more than half full. We started this trip with the moon, and the moon is gonna carry us through to the end. … Continue reading Arizon Trail day 31: helping the sun come up
