Beautiful hike up the creek with fabulous geology all around. Lots of wild flowers in bloom. Saw bear sign in two places. A few turtles were spotted diving for cover. Bats in the bat cave. Excellent hike, although it takes some work to do the full monte.
Thanks for joining me Kelly. :)

Kelly took Saturday off work so we set off for a two day adventure. The drive to the hike from the valley went by quickly. It's really not that far past Superior to get there.
We saw a variety of cool rock formations, flora, fauna, and flowing water throughout the day. Thick foxtail grass covered much of the route, so if you like to see where you are stepping try this hike another time.
We opted to check out a few of the side attractions along the way, like springs and the bat cave, and took plenty of pictures (Tibber mode). Many off trail miles were covered making us glad to finish up for the day, enjoy a cold beverage, then set up a camp site with great views near the lower end of White Canyon. Beautiful quiet evening was relaxing. Excellent first day of our adventure. :)

Added on Young Man's down and up to my usual route. Not nearly as many people out today. Parking lot only a quarter full when I finished. Unheard of. I guess the rangers, police, and nimby neighbors scared most folks off.

Hiked off the west side of Two Peaks, then down a wash. Looped back up west of Mormon through the boulders. Nice and cool this morning.

Rangers and cops at the Pima Canyon trail head and neighborhood controlling the frenzied public lol. They even had an electronic billboard at the park entrance saying limited parking and limited access. Not the most productive use of their time in my opinion. Let them hike! If you can't practice social distancing in the largest city park in the country, where can you? Apparently not in the Tonto either.

The lack of traffic is kinda nice. Can we have another pandemic when this one is through? :)

Traffic down to 20% of normal. Wow. Lots of people out walking their dogs that I've never seen before. I was told today the virus is airborne and I can get it riding my bike. So if you see someone riding a bike in a Level A suit, wave at me. :)

Wade joined us for an over due Picketpost hike. With a late start, we saw quite a few folks going up and down the mountain. It never felt crowded though. Lots of running water everywhere. Made the trail a bit slippery and muddy near the top. The newly added spray paint I read about wasn't as bad as anticipated, but still an eyesore and mostly unnecessary.

Beautiful day. Fun hike. Good company. Thanks Kelly and Wade. :)

Hiked to Two Peaks, then did some exploring. Descended in the wash between Mormon Loop and National. Saw lots of quail and squirrels. Found some glyphs. Flushed a chuckwalla. Nice day. :)

Made it almost half way home when the rain caught me. Wind and rain. Glad to just get home. 10 minutes later the sky really opened up. Stormy day. Saw a bunch of lightning earlier in the day. :)

I read on the internet you can catch a virus from a bicycle seat. I thought it was toilet seat? I may have to self quarantine. And self medicate. :)

Added on Mormon Loop, Hidden Valley, and National to my normal route. A little water still running in Hidden Valley, even through the tunnel. Besides a few people near the tunnel, I had Hidden Valley to myself. :o Lots of mountain bikes on the National. Another excellent day to be hiking. :)
