We had a beautiful day for a loop hike of Mount Cotton and Livermore.  Temperatures were near 70, there was no snow, and we had an easy walk with great conversation with some great guys (two guys we had not meet before, and one guy that we met on a hike we led last year).    There was one guy that unfortunately went to the wrong trailhead, and we weren't able to connect as there was no cell phone coverage.    We walked up the Mount Cotton Trail, and then undulated by going down and then up to Mount Livermore, where we had lunch.    We decided to go down Old Mountain Rd to Old Highway instead of doing the Prescott Trail.    On the way down we saw old stone walls and an old cemetary.    The only thing that would have made the hike better would have been if we could have gone to a coffee shop and continued the conversation!
