Hackberry Mini-Loop. Arrived at the horse lot at 6:13pm and started my run. Sunset at 6:41pm, so I knew I better hurry. At less than one mile in, heard the sound of running water. Light was already fading so I cut through the first pass before the actual Hackberry Spring pass. Even as time was limited, I couldn't pass up the chance to charge up the slick rock ridge to my right. 200 ft aeg in 5 minutes. That got my heart pumping. The post sunset view was worth it. I took a short water break and headed down towards the old ranch. Back to the trailhead at 7:05pm with not much light left. This is a great 2.25 mile mini-loop if you need a quick hike fix with limited time or limited daylight.
This is my gym. I have to travel down a bumpy road to get there. There are no treadmillls, no machines, and no personal trainers. I walk..I run..I breathe the fresh air. I can go any time I want, as much as I want and there is no membership fee.
A campfire must be extinguished by drowning it with water, stirring with a shovel, and repeating that process until the campfire is cold to the touch. A campfire is still a danger if it has any trace of heat, and must not be left or abandoned. Wildfires can begin by abandoned campfires that rebuild heat on windy days and then blowing embers ignite surrounding grasses and brush.
