1st trip
When I got home from my hike with Rhonda at Lost Dutchman this morning, I had a strong urge to head back out. My legs were still hungry and I felt guilty about the biscuits and gravy I had at Cobb's Diner. It had to be close, so I opted for a trip to Usery Park and a trek along the Pass Mountain ridgeline.

I've been around the mountain a dozen times, but this was my first trip along the ridge. I enjoyed the hike, the views, the beautiful cholla and prickly pair cacti that were in full bloom just about everywhere, and my first encounter with a black tailed rattler :o . I did not care for the fox tails covering the hillside on the trip down from the ridge. By the time I reached the Pass Mountain loop trail, I was covered in the stuff. I stopped and spent 20 minutes pulling the fox tails out of my socks and boots.

It was a hazy day out, with a nice breeze throughout the hike, keeping the temps mild. Fun hike.
