I parked at Golden Eagle Trailhead in Fountain Hills.

I took the Dixie Mine Trail to Thompson Peak Rd and then went up to Thompson Peak and back down. I saw six others making the trek.

I then took Prospector up to the Bell Pass Trail. I saw a rattler on Prospector, he was all curled up next to the trail. He never moved while I stood there frozen wondering how to get around him. I also thought gnat season was winding down, but they were out in full force on Prospector.

I took Bell Pass Trail down to Windmill Trail. I saw a cycler and a hiker.

I took Windmill to Coachwhip to Dixie Mine. I saw three cyclists and one hiker. I ended up tying my bandanna around my face to stop munching on gnats. I bet I looked like I was about to rob a stage coach. :gun:
