Did one of the normal loops but instead of heading back to the trailhead continued on Trail 100 westbound. Passed under the 51 then Cave Creek to 7th St and finished up at 7th Ave where Kathy picked me up.

Had the day off and decided to go for trail run. Felt pretty sluggish but got through it.

After work jog. I wanted to get a loop incorporating the Dreamy Draw Nature Trail and getting at least 5 miles. Nail it. :) Because the Nature Trail is so vague, I felt like an artist with a blank canvas - I could do pretty much anything in that area and I was bound to come across the Nature Trail at some time. This was kind of nice because it gave me a chance to revisit some trails that I haven't done in years. Started off from the Dreamy Draw TH around 5pm. I tried to use trails that kept me as far north while still remaining in the park as an made my way toward the 32nd st. TH. This kept me jogging along the fence of people's backyard. I didn't make it to the 32nd st. TH. Instead, I looped the small range of mountains that sits in the northern part of the park. I used a trail that hugged the base of the mountains as I circles its eastern and southern parts. This got me a little elevation on the southern side - maybe a third of the way to the top. Continued making my way west using various user trails. Used a trail that brought me to a saddle that is higher and further to the west than the one that most hikers use when hiking this area. After descending from the saddle, I zigged to the north connecting to a trail that was signed as the Dreamy Draw Nature Trail. This is the only part that I did, that I know for sure was part of the Nature Trail. Cig used this part of the Nature Trail to get me back to the TH. Pretty much everything else I jogged was user or Christiansen Trail. Saw 2 bikers and 1 hiker while I was out. Saw a couple of rabbits and that was it.

First hike in over a year, was slow going. I think we caught a 1/2 mile on another trail for a total of 2 miles, but I couldn't find it on the site.

Early morning training run from the Myrtle trailhead. Went north on 1A and then did a little exploring on Trail #100 and Trail #220 to make a short loop and back to 1A.

Hot and humid again, hoping the weather forecast is wrong for the next two weeks. I would kill for 70 degree temps right now.

Too busy with baseball to leave town, so gotta get the hiking in somehow. Good thing some of the trails around Squaw Peak make you feel like you are miles away from the city. Started at the Dreamy Draw park right at sunrise. Didn't really have a plan so just started going and decided to make a loop with Perl Charles and then the 100. Got rained on just a little (nothing like last time) though Gabby loves playing in the puddles. I enjoyed the up and down elevation at the beginning of this loop and then it was pretty flat for the rest which was good because I got a few miles of running in. After a real long streak, I tripped and fell and banged up my knee pretty good but was back up running in no time. A lot of hikers on the 1A and a lot of bikers in the 100. It was an excellent day to be outside!

Did sort of a perimeter walk around the south-eastern Phoenix Preserves. I didn't plan this ahead of time. If I did I probably would have been able to keep the route tighter to the edges. As it is I missed quite a bit.

69° when I left home at 1220. Pollution was awful. Could just barely see the White Tanks from Dreamy Draw. My back was still sore from the AZ 77 pickup two days ago. Before I do it next time, I will buy one of those extendo-pincer dealey jobs. Started out on #220, then wandered. 76° when I finished at 1400.

Decided that it'd be too hot for a Squaw Peak summit, so wandered around Dreamy Draw area including Trail 1A after work.

Did some hiking in the Dreamy Draw area. Started and ended on the Nature Trail, but incorporated quite a few user trails as well. Started at Dreamy Draw and went out towards the 40th st TH. and then climbed the small line of mountains that run east-west and stand between Piestewa and the subdivision to the north. It's been years since I've been up there. Not much has changed though I think there are a few more user trails than there use to be. Jogged some, walked some. Only saw a few people out. No wildlife. Temps in the low hundreds with some nice cloud build up around the valley.
