Alone is how I am.
Alone is how I hiked because Kemosabe's screen is being replaced AGAIN, thereby no HAZel (altho when I would hear bird sounds I kept waiting for Time...)
Alone is what I was on the Elephant Mountain Trail except for two other people I would see toward the end. I did see a few hikers and bikers on the Dragonfly/Spur Cross Trails.


Hiked clockwise from Crown of the Creek, lovely as always.
Dragonfly Trail. They've added some drainages. They've done some work as it goes around the corner at Cave Creek and heads north as well as the crossing of the creek.
There are now a couple more benches on the Dragonfly and Spur Cross Trail. The one I was particularly fond of was at the intersection with the Elephant Mountain as I had intended on taking a break there so it was quite convenient.
Elephant Mountain Trail heading north from Spur Cross is still the same rocky gnarly trail as it's always been except there's been a partial saguaro casualty. The trail is still steep and slippery on both sides of the saddle.

I realize I've been hiking out here for 13 years :o .
I'm now in keeping in hiking shape mode for my "Kelly hikes". Still have work to do in that regard.

For me, sometimes it's just as much about the journey as the destination.
Oh, and once in awhile, don't forget to look back at the trail you've traveled.
