This was my second hike for the day. My original plan was to do this one yesterday and then hike Bassett Peak today. On my way down I took a side trip to Mexico to get a haircut and for some reason the border was all backed up. It took me 2.5 hours to cross back over. Normally about 15 minutes. Anyway that put a wrench in my Saturday hiking plans.

This hike was freaking fantastic and I hit it at the perfect time. Tons of wild flowers of all colors. My favorites are the Columbines. Then after mile 3 I hit the raspberry jackpot. Boom they were still there and there were tons of them. They were just falling off into my hands. It pretty much slowed my roll but that is fine by me. I don't ever buy raspberries in the grocery store but I sure do love them out on the hiking trail.

The trail is in great shape overall and was much improved since my last visit a couple years ago. I couldn't have asked for a better day to be out on these two great trails!
