Headed out to SNP hoping I might get to run in the rain. It was raining when I left my house, but 10 minutes later as I arrived at the trailhead everything looked dry! Nice to not run in the sun, but it was very humid. Didn't see anyone else on the trail.

I decided it had been too long since I last visited the Broadway Trailhead and decided to take a quick evening run. Instead of planning my run in advance- I left my maps behind and just let my legs choose what direction to turn at the junctions. I ended up having my first snake encounter of the year, and one of my closest run-ins to date. I came out of a sharp corner and upset a rattlensake that was basking in the middle of the trail! I was forced to jump off the trail into prickly pear, but at least thorns are better than being bitten!

Went for a run from Broadway trailhead. Didn't really know how long of a run my legs were up for, so I just took off with no real destination in mind. It was nice and cloudy out for most of the time I was on the trail, I even had a couple small showers. Ended up running from the Broadway Trailhead, south to Loma Verde Trailhead, back north to Douglas Spring Trailhead, then swung south to Pink Hill and worked my way back to where I started. I think I covered nearly every trail between Speedway & Cactus Forest Drive!

Mid day (3pm), spur of the moment run through SNP after going to the DMV. Pretty warm out (mid 90s and above), didnt encounter anyone else on the trail.

Sunset run through several trails in SNP East from the Broadway Trailhead. Had the trail all to myself and was treated to the view of lightning over the Rincons as I finished my run.

Another mid day run in SNP while the thermometer read 95+ degrees outside. I was actually surprised to find another vehicle at the trailhead when I arrived, and a 2nd one pull up as I was grabbing my gear. I guess Im not the only person who loves to play outside in the heat?

Ran Shantz to the Pink Hill Lookout, then took Squeeze Pen South to Carrillo Trail. Followed Carrillo trail to the junction with Garwood Trail, then backtracked to Deer Valley Trail and returned to the parking lot via Pink Hill.

Ran from Broadway trailhead over to the Pink Hill Lookout (which I didn't know existed), then looped back on Vanover Trail. Only passed one other person on the trail very early on.

I'm really getting into exploring the network of trails in Saguaro National Park East! The trails are well maintained and work great for running: allowing me to cover a good amount of ground in a very short period of time. I took a quick evening run from the Broadway Trailhead over towards the Loma Verde Mine & looped back. Encountered 5 other trail runners and only two hikers.

Trail run from the Speedway Trailhead to the Broadway Trailhead and back again. Didn't start with any specific destination in mind, just let my feet carry me and my mind wander (stuck to only right turns on the run out, and left turns on the way back). Nice day: quite sunny, but the temperature was in the 60s/70s with a nice breeze. Had two pause briefly on two occasions when I encountered horse riders. Luckily I did not encounter any rattlesnakes.

Quick evening run. Took Shantz trail from the Broadway Trailhead down to Cactus Forest Drive, then ran back along Mica View RD & Mica View Trail. Saw quite a few jackrabbits along Shantz Trail.

I hurt my calves running recently and figured a nice flat stroll through Saguaro National Park would help loosen them. Started around 5pm and wandered along several or the trails with no real destination in mind. It was a nice day to be on trail- temperature was just right and I didn't encounter anyone else on the trails! Just about time to start doing night hikes...
