Headed out to do a portion of the Maricopa Trail starting from the Anthem Trailhead going east. Found the trailhead easily enough and headed out a little after 7am. A slightly cool cloudless morning greeted me though within a half an hour I was shedding my long sleeved shirt. The trail varied from sandy, dirt to rocky. The desert here was lush with a carpet of green covering the desert floor. You are never too long without views of houses near and far. After a while the trail passes through a fence and crosses some small washes. About an hour and a quarter in I turned around and headed back. 3 hikers and one bike rider were all that I saw on the trail. Managed to get more photos of birds than I ever have. part of the way back I was serenaded by Cactus Wrens. What a beautiful sound! Please pardon the spots in some of the pictures. I have something on the sensor in my camera and am unable to get it in and have it cleaned right now.
