Ascent Trip Report

I contacted a friend of a friend in Kayenta who was willing to drive me up to the start of the hike so I wouldn't have to park my vehicle. I called him as I approached the end of the trail and kept walking until he arrived to pick me up, so the start point on my track is higher up than the end point.
