Warmer than expected. Pretty sunrise. A little busy on the trails but not bad. :)

Had a nice chat with TomP on Guadalupe Ridge. Busy trails. Temps in the low thirties makes for good uphill hiking weather. :)

Hiked up to Two Peaks, returned via Ridgeline. Light traffic on the trails, picking up as I finished. Watered a few cactus which I have been doing lately. The lack of rain has been very tough on Somo.
Nice brown cloud/haze down in the valley from all the fireworks last night. Sounded like a war zone most of the evening.
Happy trails all in 2021! :)

Hiked over to the west Ridgeline hill. Back on Ridgeline. Nice and quiet on the trails.
Merry Christmas all! :)

Fantastic sunrise. Hiked up peak 2089 from the south off of Desert Classic, then kept bouldering until I reached the National. Back on Marcos. Cold and windy. :)

Checked out more of the ridgeline north of the Javelina trail. Not bad but not something I will repeat very often. Saw a coyote in Pima Wash, TomP again, quail, a bed spring and a few other relics.
Most people are afraid to get near me. Guess it's time to bathe again. :)

Started just before first light. Forgot my headlamp, but it's never really dark on South Mountain so no big deal.
Climbed the hill (PK 2089) west of San Gabriel, then hiked over to Guadalupe Ridge.
Took a use trail to the ridge north of Javelina, then back across to Beverly, up Santa Cruz Hill and back to the TH.
Nice morning. :)

1st trip
Claire and I decided to take advantage of the magnificent weather for a short jaunt close to home. After waiting for the bulk of the rain to stop we headed out to clearing skies and none of those magnificent waterfalls we knew the rest of the instaworld would be out futilely searching for. I thought it would be fun to wade down the river in Pima Wash but hate that trailhead, so I drew up a loop with Young Man and and Gabe.

After the Everest-esque climb to the ridge, we splashed through HV before heading down the wash. It was just at the start that for absolutely no reason at all I pulled a Hippy and assured myself a month on IR. I was surprised I was able to self-rescue, but knew that it wouldn't stay that way for long. So I asked Santa for bags of frozen peas and RICE. :pk:

Breezy. Too cold for summer attire until the sun warmed things up a bit. The air is almost clear now! Hardly anyone on my trails.
Time for a hot mug of fresh coffee. :)

Thank you all Veterans!
The amount of daylight is shrinking fast. Still pretty dark at 6:30 am.
Took the Ridgeline to Mormon Loop, to Hidden Valley, down National, up and over Guadalupe Ridge, down and up San Gabriel.
Hadn't seen the new part of San Gabriel yet. Interesting Phoenix would build new trail here as San Gabriel is not a officially designated trail.
A coyote passed in front of me early on. Cold the first hour or so. Busy at the trailhead when I finished, parking full.
Not much haze anymore which is nice. Good hike. :)

Not as many clouds as I wanted, but temps were almost cool enough for my liking. Headed up San Gabriel Ridge, then west on Guadalupe Ridge. Came down to National at the west end of the ridge. East on National, then through Hidden Valley. Stayed in the wash the entire way down. Connected back up to San Gabriel Ridge, then back down to my car.

Up San Gabriel Ridge, including the new section at the bottom. West on Guadalupe Ridge to a short distance past Fat Mans Pass. Easy off trail to connect down to National where I headed back east to Hidden Valley. Stayed in the wash from Hidden Valley down to the old buildings, then back up to San Gabriel Ridge to finish. Great temps and clear air. Not many people out. Guadalupe Ridge is definitely my favorite trail on SoMo, and the wash ranks right up there too.

I didn’t feel like another week day canal walk so I hit this one up. A little warm for me. When I hit DC I remembered they did a little reroute so I went over and took it up to the old trail. It was there I saw the only wildlife for the day. A trekkin_gecko :y: She was doing an out and back from Pima. She brought a breeze with her and we did part of the ridge together. We split at the power lines and finished our own routes. Great to see you Kelly and chit chat! Like HAZ, you rock!
