Ahh, another hike out of my Boots and Burgers book. I left my house around 3AM :o and had no takers :( . I started the hike around 6AM. This is just a sample size of a trail that went all the way to San Francisco at one time. This section is between Tumacacori National Historical park and Tubac Presidio State historic Park.
The hike had tree cover for the majority of the hike and crosses the Santa Cruz river a few times. Nice stroll and lots of birds singing. I enjoyed it. I saw 3 or 4 Cardinals and 5 Javelina and a raptor that wouldn't let me take a pic.
I have to say though, they need a clean up project for part of this area. There are some areas where the water has piled up a lot of trash. There was also some houses after mile 3 that took a little away from your ambiance.
The two parks both open at 9am. I finished my out and back then checked out the two parks. The Mission was really cool but there wasn't much left of the Fort. Both places had Museums better then I expected. Cool stuff!
After that I went to Wisdom's Cafe on my books recommendation. They didn't open until 11am. I got there about 5 till so that worked out fine. Burger was good but they are known for their fruit burritos. I got one to go so Grace and I could share it when I got home. MmmMmm. Nice little road trip! :y:
