What a beautiful day for a hike! Today, I started southbound (SOBO) from the Arizona-Utah border on the #arizonatrail made it about 11 miles to start, going through passage 43 in its entirety!. Not to shabby considering the first thing a SOBO hiker does on this trail is scale some 1500ft up #buckskinmountain .
This part of the trail passes through beautiful high desert scrubland with Junipers and Sagebrush all around! Even spotted some cows in the distance. I cannot wait to see what else this trail has in store for me! #azt#thruhike#backpacking#dayhiking#outdoors#ultralight#camping#nature#adventure
Super hiker @arlette_laan filling out her new US Long-Distance Hiking Trails map with a nice bold orange. Apple Pie (trail name) had the great idea of coloring trails she hiked with her husband green and orange, Go Team Green Apple!!! 🗻🗻🗻
