Great morning for a hike/run. When is it not? Parked at the first parking lot on First Water Road immediately off of 88. Is there a trail name for this hike? Had planned on hiking up to Praying Hands, but decided to take a right turn down the Treasure Loop/Prospector View Trail. Soon after, I veered off to my left on a lesser used trail that led me to Siphon Draw. Continued up Siphon into the basin where I rested for a few minutes, then started my way back. Since I had only planned on a 4 mile hike, I brought my usual 16 oz bottle of water. Took my last sip at 4.5 miles and had to rough it for the last 1.5. About half mile before reaching the trailhead, I startled a deer (and it startled me) out of the brush about 20 yards to my right. Didn't expect to see that, but a cool finish, nonetheless.

Next time, I'll bring more water.

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.
