Took my wife to see the difference in the Falls from last October. Much more water flowing this time.

My son and I hiked to the top lookout; with the lack of rain lately, the falls are settling down. The waterfall to the West on the trail up is visible now, because the trees are bare.

Went to the Pool of Winds with my wife. Surpisingly, the gate is still open; perhaps the budget crisis alleviated enough to keep it open this Winter.

Tried to do this one today, but the trail is closed until Summer due to falcon nesting, so don't try this one for a while.

Went to the top with my son. It was a rare sunny day for December. Extremely windy near the top, and there are icicles on the West side.

On a cold, rainy morning last Sunday, I hiked alone along this trail. The views are spectacular. If you are in the Cannon or Seaside Beach areas, pay the $5 parking fee and do this wonderful hike.

Went for one more hike with my co-workers before I leave AZ. I was surprised to see several groups hiking UP the trail! We had a great time. No wildflowers yet.

With the break in the rain, this was a great time to do this hike. Only a few others on the trail. Beautiful sunset, and some moonlight!

I was surprised to see the East end of trail 100 at Tatum empty at 7am, so I parked there and headed toward the peak.

Once the road portion fades on the side of the mountain, the trail is no longer obvious--the rains made it difficult to find. Several hikers were having trouble finding the trail. I only went up a bit, then down to trail 8 and back on the 100 to my car.

Beautiful, sunny day, and I could see snow on the New River area mountains.

After all the rain, I couldn't wait to see the waterfall, so I went out this morning. Lots of water came off the mountain, causing me a bit of confusion as to what was trail, and what was washout! It is very slippery at the draw itself. I sat at the base of the falls for a few minutes, enjoying the beautiful sounds.

They are adding several railroad ties to shore up the trail, and it did seem to help this week.

A great hike to do after work, but before the sun goes down. I did this one with a few co-workers.

This trail isn't yet documented. I went from the Gateway along this 3 mile trail in the McDowell Mountains. It does have some stretches in the wealthy neighborhoods and gold course, but the majority is in beautiful desert. Nice views of Tom's Thumb and Pinnacle Peak. I came back on the Gateway Loop trail.

I went from the Dreamy Draw parking lot, under the Parkway, and up to the top. Lots of hikers, joggers and pets on the trail today.

I did this one with my Son, our fourth time up together. We did it this time without stopping or using our hands, which made it a lot tougher.

From the 104th Street and Bell trailhead to Bell Pass and back down. The view from Bell pass is striking--to the West a great view of the city, including downtown peeking over the mountains. To the East, the McDowell Regional park and almost no development in sight.

They have great free maps available--I'll scan one and see if I can reduce it for use on this site.

I went counter-clockwise, as always, with a few co-workers. It was dark by the time we finished. The back (West) side is never crowded.
