1st trip
Nice day to be out on the trails. Hadn't been to Spur Cross in a while, so we headed there today. Went north along the Metate and Towhee and rejoined the Spur Cross Trail before cutting west onto the Limestone. Lots of hikers along the lower stretches of trail, but didn't see a soul once we got onto the Limestone.

Haven't hiked the Limestone before, so it was new territory. The trail is rocky and we dodged some growth along the sides since we were wearing shorts. Limestone Spring had a slow drip into the full tank (bees and tadpoles galore). Page Spring had standing water, but it isn't much more than a seep right now. Enjoyed seeing Sugarloaf up close. One day, but not today.

Was tempting to head on up the Elephant, but had things to do today. Another time.
