Only one on the trail today, never saw another person. Nice and warm, in 80s and sunny. Trail in good shape. Took a nice, long, restful break at the end, with the area to myself!

Annual tradition for watching the fireworks. Tonight I saw 5 shows, the one at Oro Valley Aquatic Center being the big one, front & center.
0:48 up, 0:36 down.

Only went to Josephine Saddle for the sake of time. Just over an hour up, just under an hour down.

Drove all way to farthest parking area (my 4WD was required). Walked down to cave, very secured with iron gate. Used ropes a couple of times initially inside, really helpful. Explored to the right, back to tag 12. Then went back to near the entrance and went to the left, and down to the lake edge.

Took 3 guys out on a hike, first time in Tucson Mountains for them, and some of them the first time hiking in a long time. They made it but were quite tired. Was a nice little outing for me. Had heard the wildflowers were the greatest in years now in this range, but this trail didn't have all that much.

Hiked the Camino del Norte from Hendaye, France to Santiago de Compostela, with one detour along the way to the Monastery at Valdedios; then hiked the Camino Finisterre to the Atlantic Ocean. Spent just under 28½ days to pull it off. INCREDIBLE experience.

Went out with a friend to check out a couple of mines and mark Jack Mountain off the list. Not much to Jack Mountain, but hey, it's a peak.

Took the Carrie Nation Trail up, visiting the Carrie Nation mine on the way up. Then connected onto Agua Caliente Trail to the Jack Mountain turnoff, and back down Agua Caliente to the Vault Mine Trail, hitting the Vault Mine on the way down. Nice day out.

Wanted to do this one for quite a while; this was my first time into this range, surprisingly. Did the nature trail while there also. Perfect temps with slight breeze and highs in upper 70s.

Haven't been out to the Elephant in 4 years, had a friend who wanted help getting there so we were on. Beautiful day, perfect weather. Trail was in great condition. Rucked an extra 50lbs, felt great! :y:

There was some standing water at the Chino Canyon crossing, not flowing but not molded over either. We went a little slow, as my hiking partner was a bit older and had been having knee issues, but he did great, the only tricky part was the class 4 near the end, but with a little extra boost I was able to get him there!!
