Great Sunday afternoon hike! It was good to get out! I usually go earlier or later, but this just seemed like a good time to go.

Great hike with ???. I wish I could remember who I went with. Daniel? Rob? I'll look into it and update this post.

This was more car camping than hiking. We did try to find the Kachina Spur Trail #150A to go up to longer trails, but everything was covered with 6" of snow. We camped for two nights. Because we were car camping, I brought my Ridgid X4 18V Orbital Reciprocating Saw with two batteries. We recharged the batteries by plugging the charging unit into the 400 W inverter I brought. We had more than enough fire wood.

Great evening hike with MeiMei, Byron, and Sarah.

Went from their home via the wash to the trail along the CAP Canel to Taliesin Drive.

Great weekday hike with the Ipparz.

It was a cool day and rain was still wet on the ground. Not many people around.

Great morning hike with Sarah.

Turned back early to take care of a work issue.

Very nice morning weather. We also did a little bit of the new nature walk.

Great morning hike with Rob. It was a bit cooler today.

Saw many people on the trail today, but not so many at the Overlook.

Great urban night hike with Sarah (a.k.a., The Ipparz). It was pretty muggy this evening and still fairly warm. Almost like living on the east coast.

We picked up Camelback Walk at 96th Street and Desert Trail and took it to Mustang Library to return some DVDs.

Great morning hike with Rob. We did the loop counterclockwise this time.

Got started at 5:45 a.m. from the DC Ranch Village Health Club & Spa parking lot. We added a sidetrip to Inspiration Point.

Very nice!

Great morning hike with Byron, MeiMei, and Sarah.

We just hiked up Forest Service Road 96. It had rained a good bit yesterday evening, so the creek was running high and cloudy. Lots of stops to take photos. Saw bluebirds, blue jays, a hummingbird, and a female robin.

Creek is running higher than typical because of rains the previous day. The water is a bit silty because of the extra flow.

Great Fourth of July hike with Byron, MeiMei, and Sarah.

The elevation made this hike more challenging then the distance and AEG imply.

The lake is only just a big puddle now.

Great morning hike with Rob. First time in a long time doing Desert Park Trail. This stats of this loop make it like the Lost Dog Old Jeep Ringtail Loop, but with a bit more distance and AEG.

Got started at 6:00 a.m. from the DC Ranch Village Health Club & Spa parking lot. The air was a bit thick this morning, but less so that recently. Still, 80° seemed more like a "dry" 90°.

Not many people in the beginning, but more people by the time we were on Gateway Loop Trail.

Very nice!

Great morning hike with Rob.

Started from the parking lot around 8:20 a.m. Many thanks to Rob for helping me up the mountain. He didn't carry or push me, but he allowed me to find my way up at a pace that worked for me.

We saw a number of flowering Mammillaria Zeilmanniana and one with a full crown. No animals other than dogs.

Great morning hike with Rob.

The morning was cool and the trail was surprisingly unbusy. We only made it a bit past the junction with 136th Street Spur Trail, but that was because of me.

As we made our way down, we saw the beginnings of the "ant trail" that I'm sure will thicken throughout the course of the day.

Great morning hike with Rob and Julie.

Very nice conditions after the rains of Friday and Saturday. The air was very clear and there was just a hint of petrichor still on the wind. Did the loop counterclockwise.

When we started at 8:00 a.m., we were surprised that there were relatively few folks on the trail. By the time we finished, traffic had picked up.

Daniel and Karl and I camped overnight at Freidlein Prairie Dispersed Campsite #5 (35.291587, -111.681831) Saturday to Sunday. Sunday morning, we hiked north northeast through some trees until we came upon a wide area of downed trees (35.294267, -111.680747). We then hiked north by east to the tree line (35.296953, -111.680325) and looked down upon the Lowell Observatory.

Great Saturday morning hike with Fred. We were on the trail by 7:30 a.m. There has been erosion on this trail compared to when I was on it last (about 18 months ago). Round trip from the trailhead to the Thumb. Visited the Ogre's Den. Sadly, the Den has been messed up a bit--not necessarily vandalized, but used roughly (and maybe lightly vandalized a bit).
