My first foray into the terminus of the Guadalupe Range Foothills. In fear of being bored silly on the lowest end, I elected clockwise to get it over with asap. The broad dome wafer-type rock in the 46-48th street parallel vicinity is the same as the upper Guadalupe Range. There are lesser similarities in the Gila Range, but only one other place away from SoMo, I recall, and I forget where now.

NE Pima Canyon Loop
You can hear the trail begging mountain bikers to ride the easy to moderate tread if you listen carefully. Semi intriguing once but most suitable for nearby residents. At 1.25 mi, I passed the first hiker.

2.53 miles, the death star completely thawed my 32oz uninsulated bottle of solid ice. It's a good thing I prehydrated summer Sonoran style because I was sweating something fierce doing virtually nothing.

Only passed about a dozen hikers. Fear not, I wore a HAZ shirt that was legible from outer space since I figured I wouldn't be shaking hands and kissing babies in ghost land with school out of session.

I took RS notes to write up Pima Wash Trail.

The ribbon of the trail down Javelina pretty much hikes itself. The temperature was nice with a thin cloud layer, which helped make up for the lack of exciting in-season crowds. Self-entertainment included beating my empty water bottle against my head like a drum and singing to keep the vocal cords in tune.
