Maricopa County Rescue fella practicing his skills on the side of a big rock a quarter mile into the Camelback trail.  I’ve seen the technical rescue guys at Phoenix Fire training here.  Looks like a lotta fun!

Cool old guy on the top of Camelback.  Trying the Echo trail for the first time since its reconstruction.  He and his buddy were thankful they skipped out on their Grand Canyon plans and gave this a shot instead, they were beat.  I hope I’m in similarly great shape when I’m your age.  He was talking with his buddy about me.

“This guy hiked the Grand Canyon Bright Angel to the river and back up”
“Couple years back” I said..
“That is way above our pay grade”
We all chuckled
