End of the Arizona Trail

On the morning of the 6th we made the long descent to the Utah border and the monument marking the end of the trail. The character of the landscape looked different to the north, with the dramatic character of southern Utah very evident.

We'd arranged for a trail angel to stash 5 gallons of water near the monument. We relaxed there at a pleasant shaded picnic table, and snacked and rehydrated before taking our photos at the monument. It's fun to have goals, and to reach them, and to see what there is to see along the way.

We each drank our fill of water and carried out about 7 more quarts for the 30-40 mile cross-country walked we planned into Kanab. It took two days, and turned out to be less than 35 miles. The best part was finding hundreds of ancient pottery shards in one area along the way. The worst part was dodging, and sometimes unsuccessfully dodging, cholla cactus, which were common in some places.

Thanks to the trail workers and trail angels and kind souls that helped Wyoming and I along the way. The Arizona Trail is one of my favorites.
