Chose this "less strenuous" circuit to the Heart of Rocks, long hike, long day with many breaks. Lucky enough to see a coatimundi with a young one! Many animals on this two day trip, night drive back to Willcox was nerve wracking with rabbit, mice and javelina road crossings, slowed car down considerably! Last time in this park was twenty-one years ago, long overdue! At that visit had taken the trail from Visitor Center to Heart of Rocks. What a grand park is this, so beautiful tucked away in our state.

Return to a place I hadn't seen in about nineteen years. Oof. Introduced my kids to this wonderland tucked away in the corner of their home state. More tomorrow. ☺

Nice little hike, had hoped to do Strawberry Crater again but need a high clearance vehicle.

Slow going did this hike once before over twenty years ago. Only went about one third of the way, slow going.

What a gorgeous easy little hike with a wonderful payoff. What was even better? Rain and 65 degree temps. Loved it.

Pretty cold temps (low 30's) and slightly weary travel bones put a damper on us climbing to the plateau opposite the beautiful Subterranean City, Matera, the second oldest continually occupied city in the world. Trekked into a few caves, amazed to learn that people resided in some of these until the mid-1950s, when Italian authorities forced the occupants out due to health and sanitation issues. Another place to return in warmer climate.

Glorious hike parallel a stream amidst a number of ruins from the XII century north of the town of Amalfi. This was one of our two planned hikes during our fourteen night trip to Italy. Little bit of rain and a local dog that joined us added to the fun. The payoff at the end of the one way route was an alcove with hanging moss, vines and dripping water, a stunning sight! Would love to do this hike again someday in a slightly warmer season. One to remember...

World famous hike traversing the glorious Amalfi Coast, which we had researched several times. There are several ways to tackle this beautiful hike, we headed east towards Positano and took the 1700 (1500?) steps down from Nocelle to the sea. A little chilly on this day (during this two week trip!) but so happy to enjoy this lovely country again.

Hike from Sorrento, Italy to wonderful Roman ruins and a bathing alcove. This place is not a secret but at this time of year we were the only ones around. Extensive ruins abound right at the Gulf of Naples, what a cool place. Would love to return at a warmer time to enter the alcove bath.

Lived in Prescott area 1991-97 and never did this hike, better late than never! Nice hike, kind of two hikes, started from south boat ramp, in a clockwise direction, the first half, through the Dells is pretty and towards the north end a little "sketchy" as one triplog noted. Be careful not to take a spur trail in this area. Loved the hike through the Dells, nice spots with water. After leaving the Dells hooking up with the road is not quite as much fun. Glad we did the hike!

Really cool hike that I discovered a number of months ago, had to do it. Pretty easy hiking, very level, unlike it's predecessor, the original pathway completed in 1905 (visible in photos) which deteriorated and became known as "the most dangerous hike in the world". Must be booked ahead of course, like to do it again with a setting sun.
