So this was my first hike in AZ since I moved back from CO in August. I hadn't been out in the McDowell mountains for about 18 years so I decided to go check out the preserve with a hike to Tom's Thumb.

Got to the trail head with my friend Chris at 7:30am and headed up. It was a beautiful day to be out hiking and we were enjoying the views and constantly stopping to climb random boulders and such on the way up. Got stuck by a cholla in the leg when I was horsing around off trail and Chris yanked it out for me :) The scenery is pretty awesome out there and we had a lot of fun scrambling around the side of the thumb and checking out the ogre's den.

Definitely a fun time and it's a place that I would like to bring my less hiking experienced friends to in the future! :)
