Enjoying the cool pines. Soaking in the views. Soaking in the sun. Soaking in the RF from all the antennas. Life is good.

It was a sunny day, but not too hot and with a good breeze that got stronger the higher we climbed. We opted not to climb the boulders to the top of peak 7185, which I think cost us a view of the lake below, as I couldn't see it from any other vantage point I scoped out. Instead we hung out under the shade of some boulders below the peak. Back at the bottom we waded in the lake enjoying the solitude of a Wednesday in the woods.

My first time in the Stronghold and it's a truly incredible place. The hike up the eastern side is fairly gradual. The descent down the western side feels steep, but it wasn't too bad coming back up. I ran into some ATVers at the west trailhead who asked me where the petroglyphs were. I didn't know there were any in the area, but did see a "Do not disturb the archaeological resources in the vicinity" sign. The only other people I saw were a couple who turned around at the divide.

These two trails comprise the only dog-friendly trails in the monument. While I would've preferred hiking amongst the hoodoos, my partner and I still had a good time. These trails are great for birding, history and watching deer.

I've wanted to do this hike for a long time, but it just seems so out of the way. Granted, I've traveled farther for much shorter hikes, but I was still dreading the drive. And it's not a fun one coming from the East Valley. I-10 west of the Valley needs to be expanded, Salome Road has a top speed of 45mph to protect cattle (I counted three carcasses) and the dirt road to the trailhead needs to be graded. But the hike is beautiful, pristine Sonoran desert with a unique reward at the summit and nary a soul around. We went super slow, not just to soak it all in, but because my hiking partner has to stop and sniff every bush on the way up and the way down.

Day 2 in White Sands. More of a play day then a hiking day, but we managed to knock out this easy interpretive trail and also the shorter Playas Trail just across the road. Then we found some quiet dunes to eat our lunch at and let the puppy run wild.

I'm proud of my wife and five-month old puppy for handling this hike like champs. It's not exceptionally hard, but going up and down dunes can get tedious. We discovered that in winter the key to enjoying the hike is to do it barefoot. I wouldn't recommend that for summer.

There's a whole mess of trails in this part of Saguaro NP so I just wandered around checking out various washes and watering holes on my way to and from Bridal Wreath Falls.

Exploring the Victoria and Lost Cabin mining areas. TH is at the campground offering easy access. The new border wall is visible atop Monument Hill, one of its more controversial locations. It's all lit up at night too, like the Empire State Building.
