More of an easy stroll than a hike. I was here scouting out possible future routes. I must say the wash was incredibly deep. I wouldn't want to be here during a flash flood.
Decent area for birding as I spotted several Gila Woodpeckers, Phainopeplas and a Gilded Flicker. I also saw a Harris' Hawk and what I think may have been a Great Horned Owl in the wash. Both were too quick for my camera.
Interesting fun fact. I was the only vehicle at the trailhead at sunrise. By the time I returned to my car there were 14 vehicles in the lot. Four with AZ plates. Eight with Canadian plates, everywhere from British Columbia to Quebec. Either there was a Parliament meeting happening on the backside of Pass Mountain or it's snowbird season!
