I was riding down the street the other day
Who did I meet?
I met a friend of mine and he did say
Man, I can smell your feet a mile away.
Smile away, smile away, smile away, yeah smile away :)

Started up the Bursera trail just before first light. Took it to the National, then hiked west to the junction with the Maricopa trail which is near the west end of the National. I then hiked west on the Maricopa/Ma Ha Tauk Perimeter trail. I kept going west on the Maricopa trail where it splits from the Ma Ha Tauk. Went under the 202 freeway, north along 51st Ave., then west again. The trail parallels a canal which is where I turned around and headed back.
Some new trail for me. Not too exciting. Probably best done during cooler months. :)

Hiked the Corona de Loma loop from the Pima Canyon TH. Took the Ridgeline trail extended to Mormon loop to National to Eagle Pass. Hiked down Corona de Loma East, took the Desert Classic west to Corona de Loma, up to National and back the way I came.
Smokey red sunrise. Lots of unskilled mountain bikers out. Uneventful hike. Glad to get a workout in considering the poor air quality. :)

The grade school in my neighborhood is showing signs of life this week. Crossing guards have been gone for about six months. Good to see them back. :)

Drove up to the Shultz Pass trail head Friday night and slept in the van. My shuttle ride fell through so I hiked a little over half way as an out and back instead of all the way through this AZT segment #34.
The trail is in good shape and marked very well. If you like pines, firs, spruce, and aspen, then this is your hike.
I camped near Bismark Lake Saturday night at an elevation of 8900 ft. It didn't get as cold as I was expecting, maybe in the low forties.
Got up early Sunday morning and hit the trail just before 6 AM. Saw a large bull elk as he walked in front of me across the trail. Stopped at Alfa Fia Tank for more water, and made good time back down to Shultz Pass.
Pretty hike. Nice views of the peaks. Plenty of mountain bikers and day hikers on Saturday. Enjoyable weekend. :)

The mercury soared into the 90's today. Normal temperatures are a shock to the system. Somebody turned the oven off. :)

Started at Beverly Canyon TH took Ridgeline to Mormon Loop to National to the bench mark above Eagle Pass. Went down Corona de Loma East a little ways. Got an early start to avoid the heat. Not much wildlife out. We need some rain. :)

Hiked up Pyramid, around to Goat Hill. east on National to Ruins, took the connector to Bursera, west to Bursera Canyon and back to the trail head. Saw an owl. He soared into the wind next to me for my viewing pleasure. My Larabar turned into a chocolate mess. Had to lick the wrapper to clean off the melted chocolate. :)

Hiked Geronimo from Pima Canyon TH via Ridgeline extended, Mormon Loop, & National. Busy with people when I started. Ghost town when I finished. Pretty big hike considering the temps. Wore me out. Ran out of water the last mile. Saw a blacktailed rattler, half a mouse, a hawk, and quail. :)
