Crossing the Kaibab Plateau, Northern AZ

After a couple of days avoiding the snowy, cold conditions in Northern Arizona, we headed back on to the trail to continue our SOBO hike of the AZT, which we started on October 4th 2018.

Join us next time when we luxuriate in some warm weather in the Grand Canyon!

 

And don’t forget, we are doing some fundraising for the Humane Society while on this hike also, so if you can, please support our hike and the great work that the Humane Society does by going here. You can pledge as little as 5¢ per mile and pay your full donation when we finish the AZT. 90% of your donation will go directly to the Humane Society and the remaining 10% will help support the Arizona Trail Association.
