Back in Arizona again but busy painting the house so I haven't been able to get in as much hiking as I would like. I did manage to get a short hike in to Hope Camp in Saguaro National Park. I have done this many times before but this is a first for Ginny. We took a short section of the Quilter Trail also. The windmill at Hope Camp hasn't changed much, blades at the base and the tail still blowing in the wind above. This is a F. Ronstadt Hardware store of Tucson wind mill. There are a few of these around southern Arizona. I always get his grand daughters songs stuck in my head when I visit one of these. Very few people on the trail but did run into two horse back tours with tourist. The Cactus look a lot better than a couple months ago, not quite so wrinkled after the rains/snow. Still need more though. No water to report except a small pool on the trail, expect from horse.

Hope to get some more hiking in while I'm back in Arizona but the honey do list is getting longer.
