Finally done with being sick the first hike of 2020 was calling me. I needed something not to difficult and one of my favorite loops fit the bill, up the Metate trail and back along the Spur Cross Trail. As usual the drive up was enjoyable with hot air balloons dotting the blue sky. Arrived at the parking are at 8:45 with a cool 41 degrees showing on my car. setting out about 10 minutes later I was soon snapping pictures and enjoying the beauty of the area. I was well into the Metate Trail when a Cardinal flew across the trail in front of me. Though I did not get a good picture of it I felt blessed at having seen it. I stopped and had a snack at the benches by the creek crossing then stopped again after coming up out of the creek area at the intersection with the Spur Cross Trail. More hikers were present as I made my way back up the Spur Cross Trail. It took me almost 3 hours to complete the trek this time. We all know that the Spur Cross area is not a place to be hurried through.
