Did another shorter hike with the kids again. I hadn't hike the new trails over in the Hawes Pass area, so this looked like a good hike for them. We parked along the Bush Highway again and headed north on the Scorpion Trail. then we took the right turn and headed west on the Scorpion Alley Trail, and did a counter clockwise loop on the Stinger and High Horse Trails. Then back the way we came on the Scorpion Trail(s).

Things are starting to green up alot now after the winter rains. Lots of wildflowers, as well. We saw one buckhorn cholla early on that was split open in several spots. Wondering if it's because it got too much water, or had some disease.

I found a few unmapped trails that crossed the trails we were on. The most prominent one was at the northwest corner of the Stinger Trail. It looks like it kind of parallels the north portion of the Stinger Trail, but it also heads further west. More to explore for another day.

All the snow on the mountains is gone, except for the lingering spots on Four Peaks. Still nice views to the north. Saw a few mountain bikers and 3 trail runners. Not too crowded, especially considering the nice weather.
