    I liked this hike... have to do that again. Keep trying until I am not out of breath so fast. :) Thanks guys for being patient. Glad we ventured out in the rain. It was great how it stopped just for the hike and started when we were finished. Nice cool day.

    Chuck the 51 is closed due to accident so 101 is going to be backed up. Rain scares these Arizonans. LOL. At trailhead and yes it is still raining. Do we hike with umbrellas

    Now it raining hard where I live (Rio Verde) and there's no sign of it letting up. I'll still be at the TH at 8 AM but if it's raining like this there I don't see us hiking.
