Another late afternoon / early evening hike in McDowell Mountain Regional Park...

Starting at the Four Peaks Trailhead (also known as the Horse Staging Area), I hiked Shallmo Wash Trail, Pemberton, and Escondido. Temperature was about 95 when I started. Not being sure if I was acclimated, I figured I could bail out on one of the shorter loops if I had too. The temperature felt pretty good though. It's not really hot yet.

I saw a rattlesnake and a coyote on Escondido. When I got back to the parking lot, I saw a lot of vehicles belonging to night riders, but I didn't see a single mountain biker (or any other human trail user) during my entire hike.
