Was up at Red Rock Canyon so this seemed to be in order. Beautiful area. Will definitely be returning.

If you live in the Northeast...I feel bad for you, son

Since I was down in Tumacacori for the Festival and planning to go to Tubac for the luminaries anyway, the trail seemed to be the way to go. Hitting it at dusk was a good idea, the cottonwoods and cienega were excellent in that light. Lots of cool old structures back in there. I found a layup...not too surprising, it looked like it hadn't been used in a while.

Beautiful afternoon in Pima. Nice breeze. Too bad I had stuff to do, it would have been a nice evening for Kimball.

Good ol' Obscene Gesture Trail is best when you can stretch your legs out. Today was such an afternoon. No crowds, nice breeze.

Oh Pontatoc
My old friend
I toil, I stumble
But you won't end!!

**If someone lost a Columbia sombrero back in there before the junction, it's there waiting for you.

1st dam - no water. 2nd dam - some water and a few flowers (Surprisingly.) Brutally hot on the way in but the clouds provided a respite and brought an intermittent breeze on the way out. Lots of barrel cacti blooms along the way...

Wasn't feeling it today so I hung out at Linda Vista and turned back. Nice view of the monsoon brewing above. There were a couple of other travelers braving the heat, to my surprise :sweat:

Another nice afternoon scorcher. If it wasn't bad enough that we have to walk past those McMansions right next to the trail...we now have the added indignity of tolerating several barking dogs to greet us. Ugh.

I was expecting a savage afternoon toaster session but the wind and cloud cover offered intermittent relief. The first dam is dry but no one told the insects.

106F? I'm not so sure...but there was a nice breeze. One thing you can always count on in the afternoon this time of year - the trail was deserted. :sweat:

...Enjoyed the snow in the Ritas with son #1. It's always fun to lay first tracks. Went over to the old Helvetia site. Not much left there, far less than the last time I was there.
