Personal issues have kept me from hiking for several months, so it was nice to get back out there and get some exercise. We brought our pup on his first real hike as well.

I've been wanting to do this hike for a while now, and it didn't disappoint. Great views almost the whole time. Lots of wildflowers, and bees, everywhere. Some parts of the trail were very overgrown, but never any issues with finding the trail. Saw lots of poison ivy. The climb back up was pretty killer, and we were in full sun exposure most of the time. Got pretty toasty. Only saw a couple small groups of hikers the whole day.

Time to get back into hiking shape!

From the San Juan TH, headed up Alta to Maricopa Peak, back down to Bajada and back to the TH. I'd been on Alta before, but my first visit to Maricopa Peak. Fun climb with some light scrambling. Not so much fun coming back down though. Only saw 2 other hikers all day. This part of Bajada (or really all of it) is pretty boring... I'd almost prefer to just walk San Juan Rd, since you're right next to it anyways. Really enjoy the western side of SM though. The trails are a little more rugged, and there's a lot more solitude.

Ranger to Goat Hill, then made a loop with National, Kiwanis and Los Lomitas. Almost no one on Ranger, and no one on Goat Hill. :) Saw a couple people on the National (one of them trekkin gekko). The Telegraph Pass lookout was crowded, and Kiwanis was full of the usual obnoxious people. The Kiwanis TH was a circus.

Didn't see anyone on Los Lomitas, except a ranger who was putting new stickers on the trail markers at the ramada area. Stopped and talked to her for a couple minutes. She said the ramada should be open within the next few months. Not sure if that's a good thing or not... but it would also make a good trailhead for this loop.

My wife and I have had this one on our list for a while now, and we finally made it up here. We were hoping for some good fall color, and we weren't disappointed. This is a beautiful trail with a lot to see. Loved the variety... from mesquite forests to red rocks and sycamores in just a few minutes. We spent a lot of time just sitting by the water and enjoying the surroundings. We didn't quite make it to Parsons Spring, but we did enough meandering to still make this an over 8 mile hike.

On the way out we were passed by a group of 4 who, after seeing their triplogs, I now realize were Chumley, BiFrost, John9L, and Tough_Boots. They were just stomping through the creek crossings as my wife and I were struggling to stay dry...making us look like chumps.

My first time in the Sierra Anchas. Stopped by Workman Creek Falls before hitting this trail, and had the place to ourselves. Beautiful area.

Wanted to see some good fall colors, and judging from triplogs from previous years this seemed like the week to go. Unfortunately we were at least a week too early. The best colors of the day were actually along FR410 getting to the TH. Beautiful drive, and a nice rough road to test my new truck. Surprised to see a few other cars at the TH, but we didn't see anyone on the trail. Stats are approximate, as Route Scout stopped recording a mile and a half into our hike for some reason. :(

We got a late start, and ended up losing the trail about a mile in and wasted time finding it again, so unfortunately we didn't have time to do the whole hike. Didn't quite make it to Knoles Hole to see if the aspens had turned yet. Really enjoyed the first couple miles of this trail though, and the variety of flora. There was water in the creek, but it had also been a rainy day, so I'm not sure how wet it usually is.

Need to try this one again next fall. After the hike we drove up to Young and had a delicious dinner at Antlers Cafe before making the drive home. Nice little day trip.

At least a week too early. Still some nice colors, mostly near the TH and along FR410.

Took a day trip to Mt Lemmon with my sister and her fiance to escape the heat. They had never been, and they had a lot of fun. This was our first short hike of the day. My first time on this trail. It was a good little workout (especially since I'm a little out of shape from not hiking much this summer) on the way up. Awesome views from the summit...We could see some storm clouds rolling in that would hit us pretty soon. The TH was pretty full but we only saw a few people on the trail.

After the hike we drove to Marshall Gulch and had lunch. It started raining on us on the way there. As we were eating lunch thunder started crashing directly overhead and the rain really started to pour. We hid out in the car, waiting for the storm to pass, and it actually hailed on us for several minutes. Fun!

After getting rained out of our lunch at Marshall Gulch, we headed to our 2nd short hike of the day. I'd done this one once before more than a year ago, and I remembered how pleasant it was. We did the short loop with the Mount Lemmon Trail CW. Tons of wildflowers along Meadow, and very green. Amazing views once we left the forest. We stopped and soaked in the views for a while before continuing back into the forest. We stopped at the overlook on the way back and took in some more great views. It rained on us off and on throughout the hike, but it stayed light and pleasant. Perfect!

The climb back up was a little tiring... more than it should've been. I need to get back into hiking shape! Thank goodness summer is almost over.

Back to one of my favorite hikes with my fiance and my sister. My sister's first visit to Mingus. It was nice to be out hiking again after pretty much taking the whole summer off. Beautiful weather, with some light rain here and there throughout the hike.

We started from the Upper Mescal TH, took Bug Hollow, then Mescal and Bug Hollow back to the highway, and walked the highway for a few mins to complete the loop. Didn't see a single other hiker, as always. It always amazes me how empty these trails are, even on the weekends.

Headed up to Prescott for a hike in cooler weather. Still a little warm but definitely better than the 107 in the valley today. My first time in the Granite Mountain area, and it was an awesome hike. Just a few other cars at the TH when I got there around 10am.

The first mile was a nice stroll through pine-oak-juniper forest. Saw a couple groups of hikers early on. There was actually a small stream running next to the trail at one point. Once I left the shaded first mile, there were wildflowers EVERYWHERE! I really didn't expect such a great show. The contrast between the burned trees and the abundant wildflowers was interesting. Of course that meant there were also a million bees around, and they didn't like me staying and taking pictures too long.

The real elevation gain began after making the turn at the fence/trail junction. It was all manageable though, nothing too steep. The wildflowers continued as I went up, and the rocky scenery was awesome. Didn't see any other hikers for a long while. It was warming up a bit more but still nice. Made it to the saddle and checked out the views on both sides and continued up. The little valley area between the saddle and the summit was also full of flowers. Enjoyed the views from the summit, climbed around the rocks a bit, had a snack, and headed back down.

It really warmed up on my way down and I was glad I brought a lot of water with me. Passed a few groups of hikers that were going up as I was going down. It was cool to have some good views in front of me most of the way down. I really enjoyed this hike a lot, and I'd like to come back and explore some more of the trails. I feel like this is one of those quintessential Arizona hikes.

Evening bike ride through North Central Phoenix. Took Encanto from my house over to 3rd Ave, 3rd Ave all the way to where the bike lane ends at Maryland, Maryland over to 15th Ave, 15th Ave to where it ends at Dunlap, and 15th Ave all the way back home. Not a whole lot of traffic on any of these streets. The road is a little rough for my bike along 15th Ave between Northern and Dunlap. I never realized the homes were so nice between Bethany Home and Dunlap here. Nice ride! I'm glad to have so many streets with bike lanes near my house.

Figured this would be my last chance at Piestewa before the temps hit 100+. Got there around noon. Pretty warm but bearable. Not as crowded as usual.

Saw Mr. Bartels coming down as I was going up, but he had already passed me by the time I recognized him, and I didn't want to be the guy yelling out a stranger's name. Next time, Joe!

One of my fastest times up. Pretty warm out but manageable. I expected a gnat-fest today but they really weren't out at all.

Evening bike ride through my Downtown Phoenix hood. Getting back into riding my bike. Rode from my house in the Encanto area to 5th ave, down to Fillmore, over to 12th st, up to Virginia, back west to 3rd ave, up to Camelback, back down 5th ave to Encanto and back home. Nice ride. Mostly on bike lanes. Perfect weather. Love living in Downtown/Central Phoenix for all the diversity and culture, and all the historic homes and neighborhoods.

Went on a late morning hike with the goal of seeing some chuckwallas, and we were not disappointed. We probably saw 30+ of them. The Mormon Trail was really crowded as always, but it wasn't too bad once we got on the National. Weather was nice when we got there, but it got pretty toasty in the afternoon.

My girlfriend and I hit the trail around 10am. Her first time on Peralta, and she really enjoyed it. The parking lot was completely full and we had to park in the overflow lot a quarter mile back. Weather was very nice, with some intermittent cloud cover and a nice breeze most of the time. The crowds were definitely out today though. We kept going to the lone pine overlook. Thankfully there were only a couple other people there. We hung out there for a while and enjoyed the nice chilly breeze before heading back. Lizards were all over the place on our way back. Despite the crowds it was a great day to be out there.

My girlfriend and I stayed the weekend in Pine, intending to take our first trip to Fossil Creek this day, but with a thunderstorm in the forecast, and the fact that it was already raining when we got up, we had to change our plans. We wanted to go somewhere we'd never been before, so we decided to check out the Petrified Forest. Random, I know, considering this is a good 2 hr drive from Pine, but I'm really glad we went. I didn't know much about what to expect from this place, but it was awesome! Didn't realize how big this place is and how much there is to see.

We came in from the south entrance. There were a lot of tourists but it didn't seem especially crowded, since it was a Monday. It was mostly clear when we got there, but we could see a big storm coming in from the south, and soon enough started hearing the thunder. We stopped at pretty much all of the major spots along the way through the park, and hiked all the short trails. The storm was getting closer and closer, and it started lightly raining on us on the Crystal Forest Loop.

By the time we got to the Jasper Forest overlook it started pouring on us, and the thunder was crashing right overhead. We had to get back in the car and wait it out for 20 minutes or so. Once the rain slowed down we continued up the road to the Agate Bridge. That was definitely a cool spot. With all the rain there was water flowing and actually a waterfall under the bridge. There was water flowing all over the park actually, which I'm sure was a sharp contrast to how this park normally looks.

We kept going up to Blue Mesa and that was probably my favorite spot of the day. The Blue Mesa Trail was a great, short hike. It was cool being able to actually go down into the little canyon. Like a lunar landscape down there. There were little streams of milky water flowing all over the place. Pretty much no one else down there with us.

Unfortunately we had to rush a bit by the time we got to Puerco Pueblo. It was already after 4pm and we had a 4 hr drive back home to Phoenix ahead of us. We still had time to stop at a couple of the Painted Desert vistas though. Beautiful. I would love to come back here again with more time for hiking. We stopped at the Falcon Cafe in Winslow for dinner on the way home. We'll never stop there again...

My girlfriend and I were staying at a cabin in Pine for the weekend, and this hike was only about 5 minutes away, so we figured we'd check it out. Didn't expect a whole lot from this hike, but it turned out to be pretty nice. We were thinking we missed the trailhead, but it turns out we actually hadn't gone far enough down the road. The TH is very visible from the road and there's enough parking for several cars. It was a little warm when we got there but there was some cloud cover and a breeze.

Most of the trail meandered gently through the forest. The area is very lush with a lot of greenery. At some points we got some good views of the canyon. There were some nice patches of wildflowers here and there. The area seemed very vibrant and alive. I've never seen so many butterflies in one place!

I didn't do a whole lot of research on this one, so a couple miles in when we got to the sign pointing left to the Oak Spring Trail, we figured that was the way to the spring. You'd think the "Oak Spring Trail" would get you to Oak Spring, right? Nope. Lol. The trail immediately started switchbacking up out of the other side of the canyon and we knew we went the wrong way. We backtracked to the sign and just continued ahead on the Walnut Trail for a few minutes and saw the sign for the spring itself. There were a couple nice little meadows before getting to the spring.

The spring area was a very nice shaded setting, though it was loaded with yellowjackets. Looked to be a good amount of water coming from the spring, but it was hard to see it as it was almost completely covered in greenery. We enjoyed the shade, dodged the yellowjackets, and hung out for a while before heading back. The hike back was a nice stroll. Saw a good sized snake on the way back.

My girlfriend and I stayed the weekend in Pine and did a little exploring of some new territory. This was our first visit here. It was a beautiful day out...cool and breezy with some cloud cover. The park was pretty crowded as it was mid-day Saturday, but not so bad that it wasn't enjoyable.

We walked around to all the viewpoints and then took the trail down under the bridge. This place is so cool! This made me realize I REALLY needed some new hiking shoes though. When we got down to the rocks under the bridge we were slipping and sliding all over the place. We saw a couple other people totally wipe out. I managed to make it a couple hundred feet under the bridge before I decided it probably wasn't a good idea for me to go any farther, lol. It was awesome standing under the waterfall and feeling the cool water splash on me.

The hike back up was a little steep but very short. There were still a lot of people going down as we were going back up. We really enjoyed this place, and we'll probably come back next time we're in the area (with some better shoes!).

Early evening hike. Great time to be out here as the trail is in the shade most of the way. 2x up the main North Mountain side, then walked around the basin a bit before it started getting dark. Saw a huge western diamondback, about 4-5ft, just slithering right across the main North Mountain trail and went over the side. Several people stopped and watched it. I swear, I keep seeing rattlers in the most unlikely places this year.
