I hadn't hiked Pontatoc in close to 20 years, not since I lived here in Tucson. It used to be the trail just went to the mine, and if you wanted to do anything else up there it was a bushwhack. But now there is this trail to the high point near the mine.

Tucson just keeps growing, but in a lot of areas it still has the same feel to it. I was told by friends there is a movement called "Keep Tucson Sh***ty," which is, of course a rebellion against the gentrification and white breadification that has been happening over the years.

Since another family member is moving back here, I expect to be spending a lot more time down here, and maybe even half or more of next winter. We'll see. I do love it here, even though the kayaking is pretty non-existent.

On the trail the bushes are so very dry, and there are no flowers at all. They are hoping for a little rain later this week.
