Finally got to knock this one off of my list. I had to make the decision between 2 alternatives:
1) Start hiking early in the morning, and get school work done later in the day.
Ha Ha. That would turn into a lie because I just would've hiked longer.
or
2) Get my school stuff done in the morning, and see what hike I could do afterward.
Woodchute it was. Pretty cool trail with great views, though the views were somewhat simultaneously marred and enhanced by the strong monsoon activity in the area.
Got a lot of sprinkles during the first 3 miles, but pretty dry after that.
There's some fire-damaged areas near the beginning, but not too bad. Woodchute Mountain reminds me very much of the Coconino Plateau near Flagstaff because it's 2nd-growth ponderosa pine and gambel oak forest. Very little sign of wildlife with very few deer tracks and few birds, but that was probably due to the stormy weather. I hope.
Wildflowers Observation Moderate
