The wind was in my face all morning. I met Bill from Maine. He is the first AZT hiker I have met with a full pack.

Later I crossed paths with 31 middle school students from Flagstaff Junior Academy on mountain bikes riding 70 miles in 3 days. Flagstaff to Grand Canyon. 3 adult riders and 2 drivers of support vehicles. We should all be that fortunate to attend a school like that.

I finally got back into the trees (including aspen) and walked until almost dark.

    TREES! Yes we want views, but we also want shade and wind protection. As a bike rider and hiker, I have to say I’d rather hike in the wind. Ha you were complaining about 4 liters and 4 days food . . . I was carrying 6-8 liters and 5-6 days of food. Oh my poor shoulders and hips.
