1st trip
A bit late on posting this one , at least it’s in the same month. After some pleading with @LindaAnn she kindly agreed to lead me on a guided hike to find the large Busera Tree. Does everyone besides me know you can hike from Pima Trailhead to Eagle Pass and back with barely putting your hiking shoes on National Trail? Observed that Linda really really likes this loop. Started from Pima trailhead right up Marcos di Niza , then up and down ,mostly up proceeding along the Guadalupe Ridgeline. Some skepticism raised about the tour guide however , as after crossing Beverly Canyon each hill climb was announced with “this is the last climb before the end “ :? I was granted a snack break ,fittingly near the top of Old Man Trail . After subtle hints that break time was over we proceeded down toward Buena Vista took a right on National where after a short ways I was pleased to find I could still fit through Fatman’s pass :D . Linda has perfected a nice route through Hidden Valley and Pima Wash , over ,under and around boulders to solve the puzzle. After passing under a natural bridge and over a dry water fall , all along the hike my tour guide had been pointing out Busera Trees, but now I was standing next to a huge magnificent beautiful one, I don’t think my photos captured how nice it is. We encountered a couple of rock climbers here with their pads. Linda thought she saw some graffiti on a rock but as we closed in turned out to be a mat of some sort , thought it might have been used for sliding down the smooth rocks? She packed it out. The route through the wash was new to me , scenic rock formations and dry falls were observed and solitude provided despite being so close to National Trail, finally the sandy walk parallel to the old road to finish up. Seeing the large Busera now scratched off my to do list plus a nice bonus of learning a new route . Nice one Linda, thank you.
