More of the Maricopa Trail, this time city hiking. Or I should say city walking...there wasn't much hiking involved. I started at Mountain View Park in Scottsdale just after 8am. Kind of a midpoint for walking the Indian Bend Wash. I could go either north or south. I chose to go north, wanting to knock out the section up to Cactus Rd. A lot of greenbelt up to Shea Blvd., then bike path and neighborhood hiking up to Cactus. Pretty straightforward, nothing exciting. Some views of the McDowell Mts. to the NE. On the way back I spotted a roadrunner.

Back to Mountain View Park, I decided to walk some of the path to the south. It crosses Hayden Rd. and continues south along the road. I went as far as Royal Palm Dr. There's a couple lakes in McCormick Ranch, one of which provided a nice photo with Camelback in the background.

Cool and breezy just like yesterday. Seemed like as soon as I thought it would warm up, the breeze picked up and it stayed cool. Never did get rid of the fleece and jogging pants.
