Went for a hike out of the Spur Cross Trailhead to get some exercise and enjoy the desert greenery and flower displays brought on by recent rains. I decided to take the Elephant Mountain trail part way up to the saddle and then take the trail that forks off across the park boundary leading to Rondo Spring and Black Mesa. I was not disappointed. This route has some significant AEG (for me) with lots of ups and downs. The north facing slope of Elephant Mountain had nice displays of New Mexican Golden Poppies and Lupine. I stopped for a light lunch on top of the ridge where the trail forks off south to Rondo Spring and north towards Black Mesa. This would also end up being my turn-around point as I was running out of both time and energy.
