Right now I view my hiking more as a way to get back into shape, so Ventana Canyon is perfect. From step one it just keeps climbing.

On this day I had worked most of the morning, and I was itching to get out before the heat became unreasonable and dangerous. I hit the trailhead at about 11 AM. I was pretty much the only one heading up trail at this time - I met about a dozen people over the course of the first hour coming down.

Needless to say, the canyon is dry, dry, dry. The saguaros here, too, like my earlier hike on the Douglas Spring trail, were blooming, as were a number of yucca plants.
