    With a rucksack full to bursting, I puff from the imposing Roosevelt Lake Bridge up into the Four Peaks Wilderness. Any pretty view is a good excuse for a (photo) break. And there are quite a few of them. Up to Buckhorn Creek, the chosen place to sleep, it is twelve kilometers with an altitude of 700 meters as what feels like a packhorse. The difference between a backpack that is almost empty and one that has been filled up again for several days is considerable.The spot at Buckhorn Creek is enchanting. Wonderful view and a crystal clear stream next door. Of course we pay for that the next morning with a fully condensed tent. And it continues to go up. I can see the four peaks that give the section its name for most of the time as the Arizona Trail winds around the mountain.At the Shake Spring, the water bottles are refilled and a break is made. The landscape is now constantly changing. The last saguaro cacti are disappearing, making way for round sandstone and conifers.
