1st trip
Nice hiking some new trails , pleasant weather but with occasional breezes to remind its still winter. Easy to find the trailhead the restrooms and picnic areas all appear new , also a nice bridge well designed to blend in with the environment leading to the trails, it even sports an out in the open campground. Thanks to Linda for figuring a route for us to follow in this maze of choices. Just to track distance I started route scout after coming down from the breezy Watson overlook, it tracked steady all day without reloading which has been occurring after photos lately, though it didn’t talk to me. Just as well so I could listen and learn about local landmarks, needing permits for Glacier Park and not to touch red dyed diesel fuel . Agree with other reports that they keep these trails well groomed with little vegetation, slopes on each side are loaded with cholla however so don’t roll off the trail. My favorite view of the White Tanks today was from the Javelina Summit. Saw very few other hikers with most in early afternoon as we closed in on the trailhead. Only took a few photos as I’m counting on Angela to come through, noticed her taking a few :D On the way down Valley Vista trail I thought I spotted a mysterious direct tv size satellite disc on a rock outcropping , as I came closer realized it was Angela having deployed her umbrella :oops: For some reason there were other oddly placed hill top cairns around. The sound of freedom occurred repeatedly as the park is in line with the Luke AFB flight paths providing some visual entertainment. Again thanks to Linda it was nice to cruise along without needing to focus on directions, if it was closer I’m sure I would revisit often. FYI peanut brittle beer better than anticipated!
