|Needed a quick workout before a dinner engagement. What a great day with puffy clouds, nice trail and a stiff breeze. Headed out to do the hike counterclockwise altho I had to back track as I wasn't sure I had locked Tonto 3. Quite a few people out in the first mile until I started heading west where I would mostly be by myself for the rest of the hike.|
Along the Sidewinder Trail, the ocotillos are still blooming with those bright green leaves. Despite not wanting to take pictures of them again, I did. I tackled the hill rather well I thot; but it is such a good grade so I should. The views from the top were very pretty with the light of our current weather conditions making them so.
I had thot of adding on Apache Vista but I still needed to get fuel before my trip to Chandler so I didn't want to be rushed and just finished off the hike. It would have been the perfect day to finish off with that hill and enjoy a beer after. Oh well.

|For me, sometimes it's just as much about the journey as the destination. |
Oh, and once in awhile, don't forget to look back at the trail you've traveled.
