Had plans with a friend to hike Peak 3125. I've been dealing with a sinus infection all week, so I knew the 3004 loop could be a backup option if I didn't feel like continuing up to the peak. And I didn't. Getting out for a stroll in the desert was good for my lungs though.

Extremely windy day, lots of people out. Superstitions looked pretty cool in the haze and the overcast lighting. Maybe my memory is fuzzy, but the trail on the north side of peak 3004 is a lot more defined than 9 years ago.

Nice to hike this with the creeks running. Quite a few people on the Pine Creek trail, but don't think many went very far on Ballantine. Also went over to check out the cabin and corral. The corral is in good shape. The cabin is missing half the roof, but the pieces are still around.

Good to finally get to this very cool place, and the rest of the hike is excellent as well. Went up to the ridgeline on Carney and down Peralta.

Out here again less than a week later, but with a different set of people. This time, went back along First Water Creek, rather than up past the corral to the horse lot.

Counter clockwise, up Pyramid, down Bursera. Felt better than I did last year, but apparently I took slightly longer. A coyote was hanging around the base of the pyramid incline that seemed a little too comfortable with all the people.

Really pretty after a storm rolled through. A thunderstorm was passing through just to the north, and we got a little bit of rain and hail at the end.

We only went to the end of the maintained trail, since we were carrying a 2 month old and 3 year, and the rock was wet. Will have to come back.

Out with the family. Organ pipe has really changed since I came here as a kid...25 years ago. Nice loop, though it would have been nice to do some more mileage and see some of the mines. Not sure if we saw any Senita cactus or if it was all organ pipe.

Ajo Mountain Drive was closed for the day due to road maintenance (delayed completion due to all the rain.) A couple we ran into at the visitor center and later on the Senita Basin Loop that highly recommended this as an alternative, so off we went. Really pretty canyon. Looks like the campground was seeing a lot of use despite the cold rainy weather.

Stopped on the way South to Ajo and Organ Pipe. Quite a few people also taking a look. We intended to walk the dam and bridge, but there was too much water flowing to cross. Instead, watched the dozens and dozens of pelicans fly around before continuing.

Followed the official route. This half of Tom's Thumb trail is a good one.

Chilly day after a pre-Winter, Winter-like storm moved through.

This is a little gem of a hike. Windy day. Generally followed the official route but backwards. Also made it up the farthest peak on the South, which the official route skips.

Hiked this and Lenox Crater. A volunteer was posted halfway around the Lava Flow Loop to answer questions. Nice clear day, so San Francisco Peaks made a nice background.

Putting that freshly purchased national parks pass to use. The box canyon dwellings were intriguing, and, as the haz guide discusses, seeing the way the in place stones were incorporated into the wupatki structure is interesting.

Went on the 10 am guided nature hike. We've done it once before, a couple of years ago, but it's still good. Noticed they have done a lot of work on the Apache fire house. After reaching the house we continued on the trail and came back down the Apache fire trail

As was true a couple of years ago, 2 of the 3 bridges across Oak Creek are washed out.

Lots of beautiful fall colors, including some striking cottonwoods.

Perfect weather, a storm had moved through the area, but Sedona was on the edge of it.
