Quick exercise this morning before it gets warm. Climbed to the top of a foothill over looking Dreamy Draw park to see how the progress was going. I thought it was supposed to re-open this fall, but now I hear next spring '23. The parking lot and facilities look like there's quite a bit of work to do. Nice day though.

I've done Sunrise many times, many ways, but never this way. I started at the main parking lot for Sunrise and hiked up to the top and back down the other side via the 136th St spur trail, back to the neighborhood and back to the car. One big loop. It was very nice except the road-walking part. Not too hot, not too crowded. I took a break on top and watched and listened to all the building going on near Adero and they were very busy. I remember years ago there was nothing around here, I wish it would slow down. Anyway a great hike!

Beautiful morning in the Phoenix Mountain Preserve. Very humid but once I got to the top, it started raining for about 20 minutes. It felt very good. Not very busy which is nice and I got a good workout in!

Decided to hit the trail early this morning for some much needed exercise. Busier than I thought, but not too bad. It was very warm and humid, I was completely drenched by the time I was finished. It sure was pretty with all the green from recent rains though; some of the trail was washed out however.

Quick morning workout hike on Black Mountain this morning. Windy and very hazy; last time I was here was much greener and the views were better. The trail was buzzing with activity. Many flies and bees the whole way, the trees were blooming. Saw a few people here and there.

Nice hike in Prescott with cooler temps and whispering pines. Windy. Lots of birds and a rattlesnake hiding in a bush. No people. Fun day!

Delightful hike with friends! Not a whole lot of wildflowers but saw plenty of wildlife, including a huge lizard. Nice temps and clear skies made for a nice day!

Beautiful day to be in the Spur Cross area! Started out very windy but calmed down to a nice breeze that kept us cool when it heated up. Not too many people out until we got back close to the trailhead. Saw a Gila Monster!

Good hike in the northern part of the McDowell Preserve. Many interesting rock formations and vegetation. Saw a crested saguaro.
Cool and windy to start, warm when I finished.

Quick hike in the Preserve trying to get myself back into shape. Hit both mountains and saw quite a few people for a Tuesday morning.

Beautiful day for a strenuous hike along a ridgeline I have wanted to do. Lots of ups and downs and craggy rock to climb over. Surprisingly, I saw 3 people and a dog up there and many walking Trail 100. Must be the holidays and people still visiting. Plus, Dreamy Draw is still closed. Lots of fun!

Great morning to be out in the McDowell Preserve, so I decided to do the challenging Hog Heaven Loop again. This time I completed the loop by going around Tom and and down the Lost Wall Loop. The temperature and clouds really helped; last time I did it in the summer. Surprised to meet another hiker by the thumbnail and saw him again at East End. Ran into another hiker coming down from the ridgeline past the lost wall. Great hike I loved it!

Hiked in the beautiful Goldfields this morning. A good track from Hike Arizona kept me on the right path and I also visited
a nearby Eastern peak from the saddle, I measured other peak at 3125 feet, according to Garmin. A little overgrown in places, but cairned well. Enjoyable day! I'll have to take the loop around next time! :)

Woke up late so I wanted a quick hike close to home. Haven't done this one in a couple years so here I go!
The crowds on the summit trail were more than i expected to see; looked like a weekend almost. Didn't sit at the top too long as there were a lot of bees especially on the actual summit. I decided to lengthen the hike and take Freedom trail afterwards which is much better. It's a good way to cool down and it's prettier. Most of all, I wanted to check the progress on the TH construction, looks like it's almost done! The facilities, signs, and parking are as plush as Gateway or Lost Dog! I imagine Dreamy Draw will look nice when it's complete too!

Humid hike this morning but the breeze and the clouds made up for it. Everything smelled so good after the rains and is green and lush. I saw so many butterflies and even a rattlesnake out there! And a beautiful crested saguaro. Had a quick side trip to the balanced rock of course!

Nice workout hike this morning in Flagstaff! I have had this one on my list for a while but weekends are crazy, but weekdays aren't so bad. Nice hike, nice temperature, but mostly exposed so lots of sun most of the way. The steepness and rocks/steps will kill your knees and ankles but the payoff is worth it. The second half of the hike is better and more shaded with pines and aspens which is lovely. The fire damage is evident, will be back!

Quick morning hike near home. Got early start before it gets too hot but 90 degrees when I finished. Very buggy out and very hazy. Cool temps are coming! :y:

Quick morning workout to the top of Dixie! Warm and humid but shaded most of the time with a cool breeze.
