Wow what a nice and peaceful hike. I came across one guy putting out markers for a couple of races tomorrow morning. So if anyone is thinking about hitting Go John tomorrow you might wait until later in the day.
The weather right now is perfect so a nice afternoon hike would be nice. We did have a really nice breeze throughout the hike.

Wow this was really a nice hike. I really wasn't sure which trails I wanted to take but it worked out to be a really fun hike. I met a couple from Germany on the Cow Poke Trail both of them doctors so I knew I was in good company. Of course I had to ask them if they brought any beer with them and they laugh and said they were drinking Budweiser while their here.
I really enjoyed hiking through Coyote Canyon it is a really nice little section of trail well that makes you forget you’re in the preserve.
Of course the weather does make it that much more enjoyable.

A very nice cool morning for this hike. I met a few groups hiking with their dogs.
I guess as the weather cools down the crowds will grow.

Well another nice cool morning at the beginning of the hike. A lot more people out on the trails this morning and some more hiking dogs as well.
Maybe tomorrow it won't be as busy on the trails.

A very nice morning hike. I was thing about North Mountain but it still seems to be closed for now.
The trail was nice and quite and I did a few changes just to do them.
I am really enjoying the cooler mornings as well as cooler the nights.
Hopefully soon I well back in Superstitions I miss it.

A very nice morning to do this hike. The trails were pretty much empty except for a few bike riders.
I was really surprised not to see any wildlife except for a few lizards.

I told Rowdy this was his going to be his last Monsoon hike of the year. The weather was perfect but the crowds were larger than I expected today.
Maybe next month we will have better weather.

What a nice change in hiking. Today was our first afternoon hike here and the weather was perfect for it. I met three groups of hikers enjoying the cooler afternoon as well as some boulder climbers.
Just a great afternoon to be out on the trails.

Well I found this hike to be a learning experience. I have a better understanding of why children die in hot cars and drown in swimming pools. This is so sad and preventable. But hiking up to the falls today with Rowdy on his leash I notice small kids climbing up on the rocks that had signs saying no hiking and no climbing. What I didn't see is parents that really cared about their Childs safety.
There were signs posted everywhere even signs that warned about venomous animals inhabit areas with little kids playing in them alone.
Ok I am sorry as a dad and grandfather and great grandfather nothing to me is more important than family which includes Rowdy.
After I got passed all of that Rowdy and I enjoyed the rest of our hike.

Well I decided to check out Granite Mountain Trailhead today. It is really nice seeing all the work finally finished.
We managed to do this hike with out meeting any other hikers just a few mountain bike riders. The weather was perfect today not to warm and cloud cover most of the way.
I did notice a lot of the Ocotillos really turning green as well as some plants and even so grass.
I am hoping for a really fantastic winter.

Well this was a just spur of the moment type hike. The actual plan was Ford Canyon in the White Tanks. When I arrived at the entrance after fighting traffic and construction to get there it was closed. I was informed that I could not enter as it was closed due to flooding the night before.

So I decided to head out to Cave Creek Regional Park and do Go John Trail. But as I was driving I saw the exit for Lake Pleasant Pkwy and decided hell I'll just hike there, so Beardsley Trail it was.

We got off to what I thought was a nice start but after maybe an 1/8 of a mile I come across a sign that reads trail closed ahead. So we did part of it and then just checked out the area a little.

Another quite day on the trail. A little on the humid side.
But there was just enjoy scattered clouds to keep Rowdy happy and that's what counts.

A very nice morning for this hike no hikers at all. Once we hit the Ocotillo Trail we did come across about a half dozen or so of mountain bikers.
Really not much to see except I did enjoy seeing all the pools of water. There should be no thirsty critters out there today.

Started out really humid so I let Rowdy take a few extra breaks.
Once we reached the top the weather really change and we both enjoy it.
The first thing that change was the wind it was a cool breeze going up but all at once it turned cold.
I knew we were in for some more changes and we got the blowing rain. And the last quarter of a mile it just dumped on us.
It has been a while since we hiked in such great weather.

Nice short hike with members of the Canine hiking club of Arizona.
It was nice meeting all of the new members and well as the ones I hiked with before.
But really I enjoy all the well mannered dogs I meet today.

The best part of this hike today was just checking out the new remodeled trailhead.
It is set up for water in the future.
Restrooms are a big plus.
The last time I hiked from here there were a couple of outhouses and a dirt parking lot.
Now it's a new experience and a great one.
