1st trip
Daughter and I planned 10 miles on the BCT (Boy Scout Loop), but with the weather and her not feeling the best we changed our plans to a short hike in the Sonoran Preserve instead. I'm glad we did as it got colder and windier as we went.

When we reached the Dixie Mountain Loop, we turned right and travelled counterclockwise.

We took the Dixie Summit Trail to the top of Dixie Mountain and spent a few minutes there while I found the Dixie Mark and the two Dixie Reference Marks, all in good condition.

From there we descended back to the loop, then continued around it. We were planning to go up the Western Vista Trail, decided to forego that spur trail once there. Daughter still wasn't feeling trail love and we continued the loop then back down the Hawk's Nest Trail to the trailhead.
