Took the Kisva out from the Kingfisher Bridge (the only bridge anymore...) and looped around the Eagle's Nest. We chose to do the loop clockwise, which I think worked out for the best. The Eastern section of Eagle's Nest is a really nice trail.

We were headed back home a little earlier than we had planned, so we stopped off here to see the 'castle' once more. Parking lot was very full.

Its definitely a party in the Broken Arrow area. Started out with Submarine Point since we had been to Chicken Point once already. We followed the official route that Route Scout imported. At the top, I was able to count 8 pink jeeps at once. On the way back, we asked the 4 year old if she wanted to go to chicken point, too, which she indeed wanted to. Pretty pleased the 4 year old willingly knocked out a 5 mile hike.

Lunched on Chipotle at the picnic tables (which are super nice and clean), then went on the loop of the ruin.

Pleasant stroll through the desert with the family. Tacked on the Chuparosa trail as well. Some nice cloud action. Heard a coyote yipping pretty close at one point.

Nice hike, and the views at the top are outstanding. We did most of the loop at the top, cutting off just a bit of the West end.

Four year olds are slowwww, especially mine. Beautiful hike though, and the mountain bikers provide good entertainment.

Made a double loop out of the Western Loop, Sonoran, Lower Sonoran, and Promenade trails. I had hiked all but the Lower Sonoran before, I think it might have still been under construction when I did Sonoran previously. There is an intermediate crossover option between the Sonoran and Lower Sonoran, and I would expect at least one more crossover gets created.

Nice, partly cloudy day. Get some really good views of the surrounding mountains on these trails. There was still snow on anything over about 5500 feet.

Hardly saw anyone at all on the Sonoran trails.

Still liking the extra wide parking spots at this trailhead, though it was almost full when I got there. Cars were parked on the side of the road.

Checking out the new trailhead. I hiked over here once before, but by coming in from the golden eagle trailhead. I like the wide parking spots, a nice contrast to the 145th St trailhead.

Every once in a while a trail makes me wish I mountain biked, and the Andrews-Kinsey is one.

Gloomy day, supposed to rain in the afternoon.

Not too many people, even around Sunrise Peak.

We didn't do a lot of reading on this beforehand, so we were really excited about the extensiveness of the cave. Of course its a pretty hike anyways, given the area.

It wasn't easy, but I was able to get around the cavern with a bulky kid carrier attached, without waking the occupant. Our 4 year old needed some help to get around, but still managed well.

Rushed to get this done so we were off the trail by sunset. A pleasant 40 degrees.

We were looking for easy hikes that our 4 year old, and saw this one listed. It actually keeps going up the old two track road, but we just stopped at the windmill for the sake of time. A really pretty hike.

The house is currently closed, though it looked like they were doing some work to maybe reopen soon. The trails are still open. Quite a few people visiting.

We did the interpretive loop, around the pond and back, then had a picnic lunch.

Windy day, though sunny.

Cool site, interpretive signs did a good job of explaining the notability.

Went to check out the state of the chinese pistaches and the new wallace garden addition. The pistaches by the creek are a touch past peak prime, fluorescent orange-red, the one in the demonstration garden maybe a touch before; lower leaves still not fully changed.

The wallace garden is nice, though we didn't really explore any of the side trails since I was getting tired of pushing the stroller. I liked the golden barrel cactus clusters.

The section of the main loop which runs in front of the picketpost house, that descends from the lake to the creek, is closed through the 15th.

Pretty quiet, even for a friday, given that the changing leaves usually draw a crowd.
