Before heading up to Ajo for night two, I wanted to give this hike another try, since I was unable to do it last year. It is a beautiful loop, and if you tack on going to Bull Pasture (or beyond to Mount Ajo) it adds steepness and variety. Got a fairly late start (9:30) and it was a very warm day (85-90 degrees), so I knew I had to be careful and not push it. I had the fanny pack with two 20 ounce water bottles, but I wasn't hiking many miles (my water consumption on hikes is typically way less than most folks...ended up drinking 30 of my 40 ounces). Fortunately my leg problems didn't act up, so it worked out alright. Did get a little toasty on the return down in Estes Canyon where I lost the nice breezes I had been enjoying higher up. Shade was sparse, but found some to help out on mini breaks. And hey, standing in the shadow of a Saguaro works well too! :lol:

The desert vegetation out in this park is really impressive and it was looking mighty fine this day. :)
