This picture was taken at 4:57 AM. I like to set an alarm for 4:44 when I go camping, it seems like it would be hard to wake up then, but I've learned that these moments have provided me with some of the most introspective thoughts in my life. Countless desicions and desires have been voiced and toiled over in the silence of the rising sun. IMO to watch the sun rise, and a new day begin is only rivaled by watching the sun set and the day end. If you cant remember the last time you screamed your HEARTS intentions to the universe in solitude.... I would encourage you to find solitude and the courage to be honest and open enough to try it. Thanks for reading

Arizona Trail - Day 22 (25 miles)
It was very cold last night. When woke up I knew why, the storm that was predicted has started and it was snowing! It was rather light but I packed up quickly and hit the trail.
It was a weird morning on the weather front. It seemed to be just fronts of snow that would last 20-30 minutes and then pass and warm up slightly. It made me put on clothing just to get hot shortly after and take it off again.
I decided last night that I wanted to hit the turnoff to Flagstaff today, 42 miles away. I therefore pushed hard all morning and only had one 5 minute break to put peanut butter on my wraps. It was effective though and I had managed to hike 25 miles (40km) by 1pm.
By 1pm I was getting fairly hungry and thought that I would get to the top of the little hillock and take a break before the next, and by the look of it, a heavy front came in. I got to the top and there was a caravan right next to the trail. As I was pushing on to get around the corner, a person came out and started yelling at me…
What had I done?
Well it turned out to be Sequoia, a trail angle of the AzT that I met last year as I was heading south. He invited me in for some tacos and I eagerly accepted. I talked to him and hung out while I eat. By the time I finished eating it had started raining. Sequoia offered me a beer while it rained.
One thing led to another and I did not leave. So much for my first big day of the trail! Anyway, i had a great time talking the night away with him. Well after dark, and after he cooked a delicious noodle and veg stir-fry for dinner, I set up camp just outside.
It is predicted to be sub 20F tonight (-6C), and I think that there will be heavy frost with the leftover moisture in the air from the storm. It should be a fun night!
