GET 2017 Day 12, May 7, Sunday.
Start Klondyke Road, mile 1.9 of segment 9.
End Segment 9 mile 8.1, near Two Troughs.
Miles walked: 6.2
Papa (father-in-law) and Mary just happened to be taking the Bucket (RV) from New Mexico to Arizona, and would be going past my home and Safford, so they agreed to give me a ride to Klondyke Road so I could restart my hike.
I get on the trail mid-afternoon, with conditions windy, cold, and scattered showers. After so many weeks off the trail, I had dreaded hot temperatures, so cool weather is a pleasant surprise.
A dirt road rises into rolling foothills of the Pinaleno Mountains, in mesquite and juniper.
After a few miles the way is cross-country up a ridge.
The light fails at 7PM on a short hiking day. Good to be back.
