After walking up Sandy Seep Trail, I went partway up the Heart Trail. Always a favorite of mine, because of the views and solitude, I realized I hadn't set foot on the Heart Trail for almost 4 years. It's nice to see how the Gambel Oak woodland is coming along, which grew up after the Radio Fire of 1977. There are only a few pines and junipers in this regrowth area. It's going to be a fine oak forest someday. The trees have pretty much finished leafing-out, and I could see, upslope, the aspens also have greened-up.

There were some flowers I think were phlox. I need to start carrying my actual camera, instead of just the phone. What is the plural of phlox? Phloxen? :D

But I didn't go all the way up, because I'm taking my time retraining myself for hiking. I'm deliberately keeping within about 3 to 5 miles and under 1000 feet right now.

Here's an article about the recovery of the forest after the Radio Fire: https://azdailysun.com/news/local/decad ... 9cd70.html
