This was the first time in a while I felt well enough to do an after work hike. With all the cool pictures coming out of the Phoenix Sonoran preserve, I had to check out the new (new to me) trails on the north side.
I drive through the preserve everyday on my way home from work and on my drive I can see 2 Great Horned Owl nests from my car. I was hoping to see one on my hike today and check out all the cactus flowers. Lots of flowers but no owls This trail is beautiful. There are more types of chollas on this tiny loop than anywhere I've ever seen.
Its a cool little loop I'll be hiking this a lot
