3 quick days walking around in the Mazatzal Wilderness is a good thing. A little snow on the ground, a lot of firewood, some good eats and a few friends make it a good time. Lots to explore out there. Get busy already.
John and Yuri getting set
The Mogollon Rim is close but so far away.
Trail #23 is the Arizona Trail in the Wilderness area. Our desire was to check it out after a short walk on a road undrivable due to a previous storm in the area.
Manzanita are real comfortable
plenty of water runoff from the recent storm
some of the water is frozen
kinda old tree stand. We saw a few variations of them.
I seem to find myself camped in a corral quite often. Usually the only flat spots around.
tarps do come in handy
this is an old water catch in a seep that the corral was built around. It came in hady for our fire pit.
warm everclear, sparkle worms and starburst.
I really kinda like the Mazatzals. Definitely need to get back up there and finish out Trail #23 and see what it holds. The coming Spring might be a good time.
