Hiking 500 Miles in 2017 – Week 14

April 6, 2017

Butterfield/Dysart/Toothaker Loop with my step son – Estrella Mountain Regional Park

My step son is visiting his grandparents for the month, I took him on his first hike in the desert

I planned a 3 mile hike, we extended it to 4.3 miles
Coming from Michigan the saguaros are so fascinating, even still for me after 7 years

Running total:  102.3 miles toward 500 Miles in 2017
total elevation gain 257 feet

Friendly Pines Camp – Prescott, Arizona

Spent the weekend camping in the Prescott forest with the Arizona Becoming an Outdoors Woman organization
I was able to get a small hike in during a geocaching class
After geocaching I wandered off by myself and found this
I sat and watched the trees move for about half hour before hiking back to camp

Running total:  103.5 miles toward 500 Miles in 2017
total elevation gain 68 feet
