1st trip
Got out for only the 2nd time this month since it's the Steelers' bye week. I started a little later than usual because if you get to the Brown's Ranch TH too early you have to wait for the gate to open. Started about 6:45am, not much later than usual.

I took the Brown's Ranch Road Trail up to the Corral Trail, the Buckshot Trail, then took the Powerline #1 Trail all the way to the north boundary of the preserve and back. Along the way I finished up a section of the Dove Valley Trail that I didn't do before. I took the Upper Ranch Trail on the way back, thinking of trying to finish a section of the Powerline Road #2 trail, but it was already after 11am once I got there, and it would have added another 2 miles, so I decided to call it a day and head home for lunch.

Along the Buckshot Trail I saw 4 hawks of some kind hanging out on a saguaro. At first I thought they might be ravens or vultures, but once I looked at the pics after I zoomed in I could see there raptors. Pretty cool sight.

Temperature wasn't too hot, didn't see a whole lot of hikers or bikers all day.
