Short, after work run. Started from the Apache Wash TH. As I expected the TH was over half full....40 plus cars. A lot of people are making lemonade with the lemons we are being dealt. Did this loop a few years ago and decided to change it up a little by taking the Sidewinder to the Apache Wash trail. This got me a little more elevation and mileage than my previous loop. Once on the Apache Wash I took the South connector to get me to the "other side" of the Apache Wash trail and the took that back to the TH. Trails were busy for a Monday afternoon....20 hikers and 11 bikers. Weather was great with some beautiful puffy clouds to frame splashes of purple, violet and yellow flowers. Really a picturesque day for a hike.

Another short run after work. Did a short loop starting from the Apache Wash TH. Took the Apache Wash Trail clockwise about 1.13 miles to reach this connector and then took the connector over to the other end of the Apache Trail to take back to the car. Temps were nice. No wildlife except for a couple of chipmunks.

Strung together a bunch of SPN trails to create a longer than normal workout. Swung back by the trailhead for lunch under the ramada, changed socks and shoes and took off again. Not much breeze, but intermittent cloud cover helped.

Saw two Western DBacks along the trails in the afternoon. The first was the largest and most polite -- a soft gentlemanly rattle at about 5 feet. The last one was smaller and far more agitated. Gave them both a wide enough berth and pressed on.

Nice day to be on the trails. Now off to soak the dogs. They are certainly tired.

Just the normal smattering of color.

Just a quick workout loop on a very nice day.
