Decided I would use the virus downtime to check out a local trail I had never done before so my 6 year old and I set off for the SW Superstitions. The hike was beautiful and not too busy until we reached the trail end with the waterfalls.

We managed to spot a rattlesnake as it crossed the trail into the brush. She gave us a nice little warning rattle as we approached and then went on her way. It is still hard to imagine that, after nearly a quarter century of hiking all over the southwest, this was my first time seeing a rattler. My daughter was a little leery about getting close enough to see it but she was so pleased when she did.

Spent about an hour out by the waterfalls having a snack and exploring while still trying to keep the requisite 6 foot clearance from all others. My daughter was a little let down that we had neglected to pack bathing suits as she really wanted to take a dip in the cool water but I told her that would have to wait for another day. Perhaps later this week I can take the whole family back if we are not yet under total lockdown.
