Rowdy first after taking his medication. I just wanted to keep it short and easy for him.
Looking at the pictures I realized I didn't even get one of Rowdy so sad and I watched him the whole time.

Damn Rowdy was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism and just started his meds today. So I guess we will take it easy for a while to see how he does.

This hike worked out perfectly. I really wasn't sure where we were going to go so I decided to wait until We hit Josephine Saddle. There was no one at the saddle so we took a little lunch break and I decided to head down the Super Trail.

We never saw anyone until the last 1/4 mile. It was a young couple who said they were going to Mount Wrightson. Now, this was just before 1 pm and it was cloudy with thunder. Soon as we made it to the trash cans at the trailhead it started sprinkling. But by the time we made it back to the car, it was raining hard. I'm sure that young couple turned around.
I was really surprised not to see anyone else on the trail.

This is a fairly new trail that opened about 2 months ago. The first time I did this was before it opened and I added some extra miles to it without even trying.

This is really a great trail for dogs pretty flat with 3 dog poop stations along the way. I was surprised that we got to do this as I was expecting the Santa Cruz River to flow here, but it was not.
The trail is very well-marked and easy to follow.
I did notice some flowers or plants I don't remember seeing anywhere else.
The weather was great other a little more humid than I like.

The weather only keeps getting better. We finished our just before noon and it was still under 90 degrees out. Not to many people out that also makes in more enjoyable.

Well it was a perfect morning for this hike. I think we were the only hikers out here and 3 or 4 groups of bikers. And the end I stopped and talk to a couple of the bikers when a guy pulls up to take his dog for a walk. Well it was a little Chihuahua that really had no training at all. He wasn't very far from us when he started hollering for his dog. He took it off leash and it ran off. So we all decided to look for it and he found it and just took it home, poor dog. It just needs more training. I can't remember the last time I hiked with Rowdy on a leash even though I always carry one.

What a fun hike. I wasn't really excited about getting up so early to drive to this hike but it was fun. Lots of really cool dogs on this hike and we met other people hiking with their dogs.
This was my first time here so it was a lot of fun especially when we reached the reservoir and all the dogs enjoyed it.

First hike of fall and a much better hike than I thought we have. The temps were nice at the start before the humidity kicked in. More water flowing than the last time we were here. Not too many people out except for a group of artists and a sheriff parked in a blind spot looking for speeders I guess.

Well decided to squeeze in a hike before the rain comes. I saw a Gila Monster on this hike looking nice and healthy. And it was a little busier than usual for birds. Maybe because of the rain was supposed to get this afternoon. Either way, it was nice seeing the birds.

Well, a nice peaceful Monday morning in the canyon. Not too many people out and the weather was great. It's been a while since I have been to McBeth Spring and it was kind of disappointing. This is the first time I have seen all the ferns brown and dead.

On our way back I ran into Hunter at Josephine Saddle. So we decided to hike down the Super trail with a side trip down Fern Valley so Hunter could jump in the water. Hunter loves being in the water more than any dog I have ever met and really enjoyed myself watching him.

Just a very beautiful morning for this hike as the temps started in the 60s. We never saw anyone until we reached Josephine Saddle. The guy met there I had met before on the nature trail. He did show me a video of a Mountain Lion wandering around Josephine Saddle very interesting video.

Other than that we had the trails all to ourselves until we reached the trailhead parking lot where there was a lot of Tucson Police on motorcycles. A few of them had to say hi to Rowdy and then they were gone. Other than that nothing really exciting. Just a very pleasant hike with great weather.

Well, I didn't get started early enough. I did see a beautiful Coachwhip but was quick enough to get a photo. I did meet another hiker coming through and she said she saw a Gopher Snake and a diamondback but I missed them both. Oh well.
