Belated post. Late afternoon hike with wife. Trail itself was easy to follow, though underwhelming. Surrounding scenery was very nice, though we did not stray too much from the trail. Hit the oasis and headed back. There were definitely options to do some exploring, but that wasn't in the family cards. Decent stream of people heading in and out.

I was in the area and this hike is in the Boots and Burgers book. Although I didn't have time for the burger I did want to check the hike off. The Garden was there but no visible water. Room to explore if your in the area.

Trail well marked with rock lines across the hard rock sections. no one getting lost on this trail. Nice destination and great views. Popular trail today.

Short hike, nothing special. Not quite the hanging gardens of Kauai.

Mostly off-trail to some big waterpockets that I had spotted a few days prior from atop the nearby buttes.

Morning hike with Paul. Off-trail up onto the mesa, and down to the gardens, then off-trail to the butte to the west of trail. Lots of potholes with water after the recent rains, with the two biggest pools having tadpole shrimp swimming around in them.

Morning hike with plenty of off-trail exploration up the nearby mesas and buttes for additional elevation gain.

Went with my co-worker Edmonia to the Ranger Guided Hike, led by none other than my roomate Paul. His theme for the hike was Bio-mimicry and how it relates to the desert. He did an excellent job and it was one beautiful evening.

The first leg of my wife and I's trip to Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument (GSENM), was a stop in Page to check out the Hanging Gardens. The trail starts at parking, so a roundtrip will be about .3 miles longer round trip, with a round trip distance closer to two miles than one. Not a big deal to most of us, but fair warning to the elderly or those who, like my wife, have bad feet. It was very warm, and incredibly windy, but she was a trooper. (My comment to her was that Page is a giant sand dune being slowly blown into Utah.) Truth be told, I was kind of disappointed by the "gardens", as it was only a small section of unflowering green, and hardly moist at all. Oh well, it was a good way to stretch the legs after the long drive from Phoenix. (Btw, 89T is a pretty darn nice road; hope they make it permanent.)

Unfortunately, no pictures, for reasons which will be explained in a future triplog. :cry: I do remember seeing a smiley face etched in some rock, not too far from the trailhead. My comment was "The ancient Hohokam were a happy people." Do me a favor, and laugh at the caption for my deceased photo ...

---

p.s. Total trip time unknown due to Garmin stripping time data from saved tracks. (Say what!?)

Hot! We pushed it today, trying to fit in as much of the area as possible.

Went for a stroll this evening with a new tactical pack I picked up for AAI work. Not much water dripping from the seep. Forgot my camera, so took some crappy pics with my cell phone.

Great little walk at sunset. There are opportunities to explore and make this a longer and more exciting hike. Unfortunately, I got called in to work before I could get too far.
