A crushing busy season at work has kept me on the sidelines for most of April. I was way past due to get out. I didn't have anything in mind, but wanted some cooler air and a good workout. This time of year, I like Pinal Mountain and my favorite trail up there is the Six Shooter trail. I came down on Telephone to make it a loop hike.

I hit the trail a few minutes before 8. There wasn't a cloud in the sky and visibility was forever. There was zero breeze at lower elevations. Once I hit the pines, though, a nice breeze arrived almost on queue. Except for a number of pine trees that had fallen across the trails, mostly above 6000 feet, the trails were in good to excellent shape. There is a creek that you cross on lower Six Shooter a few times that has good flow. The trough at the junction with Telephone also had water in it, cloudy but full. I didn't see any water after that. A few varieties of wild flowers dot the trails. If you're afraid of bees, don't go on Telephone right now. A mile or three of Manzanita is blossoming and the bees are busy.

I passed a couple coming down Six Shooter. I didn't see anyone else the rest of the day. This was a nice in and out hike on a gorgeous day on Pinal Mountain.
