1st trip
I haven't been to the Pinals in a bit so decided to go pay them a visit today. I headed up Six Shooter, then past Ferndell Spring to the Middle Trail. Took that to the road and then topped out on Pinal Peak. For the return I came back the same way but took the Telephone Trail back down to the Icehouse Trail.

Today the weather was perfect and the range is very green at the moment. As I was making my way up the Six Shooter I saw a BIG black bear in front of me. Quietly I reached for my camera as I approached it. Then when I was good and ready I shouted "Hey Boo Boo"! The bear turned and I got my picture. Then it started to saunter off so I did it again. He turned the other way and I got one more. Then it started run so I put it in high gear and chased it for a short bit. Keeping up with it on the trail wasn't too difficult. It's when it turned and headed straight up the side of the mountain that I was no match! :lol:

I stayed at the peak just long enough to take in some great views. Luckily the clouds rolled in and made for a nice return trip. I was surprised to see some columbines on the way back which was icing on the cake. Awesome day in the Pinals!
