Short walk in the park.
Beautifully cool weather.
The park is busting with blooming flora.
Banana Yucca, Poppys, Brittlebush, Blue Dicks, Fiddleneck, Scorpionweed,Desert Chicory, Globemallow, Luppine, Woolly Daisy, Wiry Lotus, Chuparosa and even Microseris :), to name a few.

This is the best time of year to enjoy this park

With afternoon plans, the goal was to hit a few trails out there I had not been on.

There were no @Mazatzal or @Crzy4AZ sightings

what a nice day to get out and enjoy the weather. I decided on the Desperado Trail not relizing I had done it before with a different name.
The Harris Hawks were everywhere today and I enjoyed watching them watch Rowdy and me. I also seen one deer but couldn't get a picture of it.
What surprised me the most as it is Saturday and I did not see one hiker and only two bike riders out.
