A fun little in town hike with the Turtle boys and LP. I'd been to the Wind Cave a long time ago, but that was it for this area for me.

Denny decided on the hike and it got revised as we went.
Lil-D (Congrats!) always loves hiking with me and now JohnLP has made his list.

We started at the no pay TH on Usery Pass Rd a little after 6:30 and went CCW on the Pass Mountain Loop Trail to the Wind Cave Trail. We passed a couple of groups.

We saw a few more groups on our way up the Wind Cave Trail and headed past the Wind cave for Peak 3126. Next we had the Ridgeline to ourselves. The spot we dropped down, looked thick and brushy from above, but it was relatively easy to select a path. Going down the Backside, was Denny's favorite part of he hike.

We hit the Pass Mountain Loop trail again and it was clear sailing back to the car.

Lots of people out enjoying the day. There was plenty of poppin' poppies, Brittlebush, Lupine, and a bit of Desert Chicory were also blooming.

Congrats Denny on a 4th DOTY Award!
