My Locale Earth (mostly)
About Me Semi-retired from a govt type job working on the side. Goal here is more MPD in a UL, yet comfy style to experience scenic hikes without sweating buckets, but also crank out miles if needed for whatever. Mix hikes with travel too. Not into snowy sagas or recreating a French Foreign Legion forced desert march .. but never say never.

Gear list was for 3 days but made it almost as a "24-hour" adventure (like 25 hours) using the Z-pack

Tonto Creek: Bear Flats to Hell's Gate
Always bypassed Hell's Gate for the drier Superstitions or the Matzatzal. Nice pics. Did you use the same footwear in the water and on the desert trails?
