More Maricopa Trail this morning, this time from Fraesfield TH to Granite Mountain TH and back to Rio Verde/128th St. Started around 9am, very comfortable weather. Warm enough to go without a fleece. I passed a few people, a few mountain bikers, but not overly busy. Plenty of chollas, saguaros and palo verdes along the route. Not a lot of elevation change, but great views of the surrounding mountains. One of the highlights was sighting several phainopeplas, a black, crested bird similar to a cardinal. Had never really seen them, though I knew they were out there.
