You know it's a good hike when you see more lizards than people on the trail! Good news: Spring crowds are gone from the trail. Bad news: gnats and bees are an irritating substitute.

Globe mallow is having a "moment" towards the top - wow! Plus the buckhorn cholla were showing off with blooms.

There's a new geology lesson at the trailhead and little rectangular devices to point your eyes (without magnification) to certain granite outcroppings along the ridge line.

Nice to have a date hike :budrose: just the two of us - love the combo of hike and dinner/drinks. We ate dinner at Isabella's Kitchen in Grayhawk (cookies and ice cream is ridiculously good). I bring baby wipes to do a parking lot "shower" and a change of clothes for our dinner after these hikes. Was able to strip down in the Tom's Thumb parking lot without anyone around this time! Probably some City of Scottsdale cameras somewhere - but hoping no one paying attention.
