We had a Time Limit on Saturday as I had to be in Tucson later in the Afternoon, so we chose this Hike...Nice Elevation and with our Photography lust, probably the right Mileage too.... :sweat: As it turned out, it was a perfect choice... :)

Started up a Road, climbing in elevation right away, and soon hit the Intersection...Randy and I had agreed to do it clockwise and come downhill on Kent...I left Randy behind a little while he stopped, and we met up close to Bog Spring...Nice Uphill, I've been needing that...Went down to the Spring and took a Break, hoping some of the Birds I was hearing would come in, but they stayed up in the Canopy for the most part... :(

After the Break we continued on up and up and finally started the descent to Kent Spring...This was a nice little Riparian area as well...Lots of Sycamores... :D Took a break here as well and had a Snack and some Gatorade. We then continued on down and down and down on the Road...Almost back to the Campground and we took a side Tour so Randy could show me a Cabin that the Forest Service rents out...Pretty Cool...And then, we were back at the Campground with time to spare...

This was a good little Hike with some Elevation to stretch the Lungs and Legs, through some really pretty Country with great views along the Top of the Loop...The Trails were in immaculate shape...A Runner could easily do this Loop...I could definitely see doing this one again with a few side Trips when there's more time... :D

Thanks for the Company Randy!!!
