Still taking advantage of the cool weather and before holiday crowds arrive decided on another local hike today. Parked at the Bulldog wash trailhead off Usery Pass ,temp was 61°, 3 other vehicles and a dirt bike in the lot ,past the gate a post apocalyptic scene of old camping vehicles and tents scattered around. Extra distance was added here due to missing the turn to head up to the peak and then backtrack. Saw 2 hikers on FR 3554 and that’s all on this portion of the hike. At the summit there were bees and a large number of tarantula hawks, this and a strong breeze made lingering unattractive. Unfortunate because I do enjoy the views of the Salt River ,Saguaro lake and Weavers Needle from here. On the way down decided to head over to the pass mountain loop trail. Used to hike pass mountain loop trail often and at the viewpoint for fountain hills and the McDowell’s there used to be a wood sign hanging in the palo verde tree at the junction of the trail and the viewpoint that said blueberry hill. So setting my sights on blueberry hill chose a couple of atv tracks to intersect the Maricopa trail near the intersection of Pass mountain loop trail. Fats Domino was mistaken as again I found no thrill on blueberry hill , even mistimed the geyser display from Fountain Hills so headed back down to the Maricopa trail and from there the trailhead.
