Practicing SD, Joe and I did not hike together today.
I've had a sinus infection and some other stuff going on for the last 6+ weeks and even I don't want to hike with me.

I slept in and headed to the newly (for me) remodeled Granite Mountain TH. I was thinking it would be the least popular (least busy) in the Sonoran North Preserve. Maybe that was so, but it was plenty busy. I did a loop that went out to and up Browns Mountain

For those of you flower children out there, I suggest the 6.25 mile Granite Mountain Loop CCW, or just a shorter trip that includes the south side of Granite Mountain. I consider the flowers extreme there right now.

Brittle Bush, Owl Clover, Poppies, Fiddleneck, Scorpion weed, Fairy Duster, Blue Dicks, Chuperousa, Globe Mallow and many more. Adding a green desert and deep blue sky and puffy clouds, made this a memorable route today.

Lots-o-hikers, lots-o-bikers, 5 horses and drop dead gorgeous weather.

Be safe out there
