Sat. I only did 1 mile on Shaw Butte before the rain and wind forced me and a few others to turn around. If I hadn't watched that funny episode of Gunsmoke (I had seen it before so I knew it was funny) and taken that 20 min. nap, I would have this done. So I had to make up for it with an after-work hike.

Decided a route in my head and followed it pretty much. I took the Summit Trail to the Saddle and then headed east. I was surprised on the south side of Lookout Summit how much up there is to stay on that upper tier. I had to go up a little four times. Also surprised how much my inner thighs hurt from Barbell Strength class last nite; can't figure out what moves we did that caused that.

Anyway, I finished the circle of the mountain on not the easiest terrain (was surprised at that too) and headed west to circle the western humps. There I could pick up what little speed I have :lol: and enjoyed the clean, though slightly warm air. As I came around the last hump and headed east, due to the overcast sky, I noticed how almost blindingly white the houses are in that one community below. I could also see clearly all the way to Weavers Needle. I finished my western circle and headed back to Tonto Jr.

It was great not to have to wear a hat, yeah! There were about a dozen or so hikers out today and the SW Compass cactus were starting to bloom.

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.
