Still dark this morning as Eric and I arrived at the trailhead. The rocks had washed out into the parking lot. You could barely see the parking spots in some places.

The clouds were covering the sky and it looked like it could rain, but we never felt a drop. Only the humidity in the air.

Today was another Meetup with Trail Mix and our awesome leader Rene. Hiking Trail 100 again to pick up our rock and bring it back along the trail on its second leg of its journey.

With my kids in school, I had to turn around at 6 am, so Eric and I weren’t able to make it all the way to the rock. However, we were able to make it about two and a half miles before heading back. Turning around half way through the hike, we made it back to the trailhead earlier than expected.

The sunrise was amazingly beautiful! Bright yellows and golds with a spectacular blue. The rainy season it upon us and all the clouds enhance the morning sun rising through the clouds. Love Arizona!!!
