1st trip
first time hiking here
hit most of the trails, i think
enjoyed the high points on cholla loop, arrowhead point and the h4 loop
backtracked to hit sunrise and get double digits
lots of people out - families, dogs, audible music, people carrying dogs and kids
a little busy for me, but to be expected on such a nice weekend day
have wanted some new trails and thought it was definitely worth a visit
home in time to watch second half of Creighton vs. Marquette
big win for the blue jays!

Solo morning at Thunderbird. I have never seen Thunderbird that green. I posted a few pictures on my Instagram account. Crazy green.

Morning trail run with a bud, started around 7:30 and the sun was starting to cook by the time we were off the trail. They'll only be getting earlier from hereon out...

Saw a very colorful chuckwalla monitor the passerbys.

While Thunderbird Park would not be someplace I'd drive to for a weekend hike or to enjoy a full day off from work, this is one awesome area for squeezing something in mid-week during a work day; and the particular route I cooked up for myself was an absolute blast! :A1: I apologize in advance but to prevent getting someone else [or myself] into trouble, I've decided not to publicly post my GPS track for this one... or go into my normal detail. Let's just say, my loop-like adventure:

    -incorporated [at least] four little peaks - 1682, 1686, 1831, & 1862
    -repeated less than .75 miles of trail
    -would definitely not have been approved by my PT :D
    -involved a Southern Arizona style descent off 1862'
    -was a pumpkin ton of fun!

It's been years since I've hiked in the Thunderbird Park off of 59th Avenue and Pinnacle Peak -- my old neighborhood. They have renamed all the trails and some like "Ridgeline" is not on Hike Arizona yet. The park is now called Thunderbird Conservation Park. Absolutely a gorgeous day for hiking and it was obvious I wasn't the only person who thought so. Hundreds of people on the trail and something I have not seen on a trail before....a parrot perched on the arm of a man. He was hiking with his dog and his bird. It was a beautiful bird and I should have asked permission to photograph it. Oh well.

Short jog around cholla, post rain. A little muddy with some good size puddles. Just around 40 people while doing the loop.
