With morning temps in the upper 60's and today's high projected into the 90's, it's best to get an early start. It was 0630 as I headed out of the Mining Camp parking lot with a destination of Praying Hands rock formation. There were several vehicles already in the lot but I only ran across a few hikers along the trails... kinda nice and quiet.
After gaining some altitude, I stopped and watched the sun as it lit up the Goldfield Mountains on the other side of the Apache Trail, that's always one of the advantages of getting an early start and today didn't disappoint. Got up to Praying Hands rock and took a short break before hitting the trail back the way I came. Still having some problems with a sore right ankle but the doc says he can't find anything wrong so; "just take these pills".
