I headed in to see if the parking area for the route leading up to Prominent Point listed in the Glendening Catalinas guide was still there. Pima County maintains a small parking lot up there on the north end of Campbell and you are forced to walk through a prison-esque run of chain link to reach the Forest boundary. Got a little lost on one of the social trails. I'm planning to post a formal route description, soon...

Hiked through the sleet into the snow coming down on the Finger Rock trail in the Catalinas this afternoon. I uploaded a few pics onto the hike page for Finger Rock. There were a couple of other intrepid individuals up there but they did the smart thing and turned around after the first series of switchbacks. I didn't make it even to Loma Linda because on account of the ice setting up on the granite on the west wall above the canyon, but it was a good old fashioned winter wonderland, either way.

Hiked back to the first dam in the late afternoon. This was the first weekend of "shorts" weather so the trail looked like Sabino up to the second crossing...strange given the hour. After that there wasn't a soul in sight on the trip in to the dam. Dam was flowing nicely and the flowers from last spring look like they're coming back in, again. **Note: I'm back-filling my trip log for the year so there won't be much detail to some of these**

Hiked back in to Maiden Pools in the afternoon. The first two miles of the trail was a beehive of activity but the crowd died out near the climb up that south-facing wall. Lots of water and lots of trash on the trail :? **Note: I'm back-filling my trip log for the year so there won't be much detail to some of these**

Went back in as far as Linda Vista before it started to get too dark to press on. **Note: I'm back-filling my trip log for the year so there won't be much detail to some of these**

Took a quick jaunt in to visit the mine. Lots of garbage up there, most of which I was able to carry out. **Note: I'm back-filling my trip log for the year so there won't be much detail to some of these**
