Wanted to do something new and close by that wouldn't take all day. I noticed immediately that there were blooms along the drive to the Ritz. So hope that this spring turns out to be a wildflower explosion. Started hiking a bit before noon. The Cochie Canyon Tr. is really fancy, lined with big rocks for most of the way. I passed a hiking club from Florence on their way out right before I got to the windmill. The hills are really green and I saw scattered wildflowers. The route between Cochie Cyn and the Wild Mustang Tr. is very well beat in and parts of it were lined with small rocks. The climb is steep but fun along the ridgeline and the views at the top were fantastic. There were two crested saguaros on this hike but one looks like it has frost damage. It's been a tough year for saguaros. Took the Wild Burro back. I'm going to have to set up a shuttle sometime to hike the new Goat Corral trail and see where it goes sometime.
