I decided to stay close to home today and with the cooler weather I did a longer than normal hike.

I guess that you'd call this one a figure 8 lasso loop. I started from the Golden Eagle Trailhead in Fountain Hills and made my way almost to Toms Thumb before coming back. I stopped to take a nice lunch break at the Toms Thumb Overlook, which was the best part of the hike.

I saw 3 deer on the Windgate Pass Trail, and stood and watched them for 12 minutes according to Route Scout. I don't often see wildlife in this area, so that was a bonus today.
