Another stay over in Chandler meant an easy drive to the Pyramid Trail Head. Before leaving for the hike did a short one mile dog jog which resulted in a left quad strain which was annoying all day, chalk it up to just another old age malady. Ended up making this a large lasso loop, went up Busera for a change instead of as usual coming down from the Gila connector. At least from above at the junction with Busera Canyon these trails are looking familiar to me. Cut over to the visible Gila Trail , took it and went up and past the Busera connector all the way back down to the junction of Pyramid. After reading the excellent guide about Cholla Flats Trail decided to try it , figuring at worse I would end up on my familiar Chandler Blvd Trail :lol: Only saw one other along this trail and they took one of the neighborhood side trails, by now it was heating up and I hoped to see an ambitious youngster with a lemonade stand in one of the many backyards I passed but alas no.Thought there was some nice 360 views of the surrounding workout trails visible, this trail is well signed, no shade however so even too warm for a spring day. Cruised back to the trail head on Pyramid. Surprised I’ve not seen a rattlesnake in South Mountain Park ! In fact no wildlife spotted today except a roadrunner with a lizard in its beak.
