After work jog. Started from the Apache Wash TH around 3pm. Went out on the Apache to where it connected to the Badger Brawl. This stretch of the Apache is kind of nice. Some minor up and down as you cross a major wash. Even though there is no water, there is quite a bit of greenery around the wash. It is annoying that you have to do this stretch any time you want to do a trail to the east....feels like I've done this trail a hundred times. Badger is a nice trail for running. Very flat, with the exception for some washes. It is a little rocky in sections but it gets smoother as you go. Took the connector over to the Cliff Walker trail. The connector is a serviceable trail composed of hard dried dirt....did I mention that it was flat? Took the Cliff back to the Badger. Flat. Ideal for jogging. In my opinion some of the better views of the east side trails as you over look the wash. Some decent "cliffs" as the trail goes along the edge. Took Badger Brawl back to the Apache Wash and the Apache back to the TH. Nice run. Weather was great! :y: Met some lizards and 1 biker. Surprised there weren't more people out with this kind of weather.

Did a lasso hike with a long tail. In on the Apache Wash to the Badger Brawl and then took that out all the way to the connector and then back on the Cliff Walk Trail. Jogged a good portion of the trail. I was "breaking" in a new Garmin (650) and lost data twice by inadvertently touching the screen. One time, I paused it and it stopped tracking my movement/time. And then later in the hike it started over from 0! (Sigh). So my mileage is more a best guess than an accurate account of this lasso. Good hike/run. Very windy, though muggy. No wildlife. Saw one biker.

Low temps and sunshine seemed to suggest a long, but not too strenuous, hike. Hit the eastern side of the Northern Sonoran Preserve for a convoluted meander. Not many folks on the trail today.
