The Day after my Payson Trip, I had to make a Run out to San Carlos, so I planned a little Hike in Globe on the way back. I've been wanting to see this Park since several have done it and enjoyed it so much. I was limited on Time so I just did the West/East Loop with Side Trips to an Arch and the Flag at the Peak.

Decided to try some Duct Tape on the Foot, to see if that helped out the Trail Runners, but not sure if it helped or not, because I ended up stopping a lot and burning up some Camera Battery on all the Blooms out there. It certainly didn't make anything worse although the existing Blister heated up a couple of Times still....Between the Flowers, the Clouds, and approaching Storm, I stayed plenty busy. I spent more Time than I should have, but it was worth it.... :) No Brace again today, the Trail was very smooth and easy again, so the Ankle did fine... :)

And just FYI, if you haven't driven 60 between Gonzales Pass and the far end of Globe, what a Pain in the Ass. You may as well Double your Drive Time if you go that way. Road Construction for most of the Way including in the Town of Globe for a Water Main...Certainly would not want to do this Drive on a Weekend, although by late Afternoon on Friday, they had a least stopped and opened up the Lanes in a few Places. There is also a lot of Blasting going on, so you might want to call ahead if you make this Drive during the Week...Luckily, I did this on Friday, as the Day before, the Highway would have been completely closed for 4 Hours....

Definitely plan on hitting the Rest of this Park when I get around in that Area again.... :)

The Poppies in Claypool (between Miami and Globe) along Highway 60 are Peaked...Explosive Poppy Color through the whole Section. Lots of different Wildflowers going at the Round Mountain Park. I would say just a tad past Peak. The Flowers are starting to look stressed probably due to not enough Rain and a little early Heat....
