This was a hard hike for me as I was sick with the flu. Picked something up from being stuck with a busload of sick tourists at the IMax theatre in the Grand Canyon. It took three days but it nailed me big time when I was doing this peak. I don't remember much from this hike but I did it with Bill Jacobs and Sacha Bobst (aka redsplashman).
Gentle hike through a thickly-forested creekbed hits the top of the Verde Rim and the world drops off below in all directions. One of the most impressive views I've ever seen. Didn't see a soul the entire day, and it was Labor Day weekend. Great spot.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
