Hiking 500 Miles in 2017 – Week 22

June 2, 2017

Lost Creek Trail at Verrado with friends

I made a new friend through a hiking group and learned of a new hiking area
It has reached the time of year in Phoenix that to hike I must get up very early… at least I’m rewarded with gorgeous sunrises

Cottonwood Trail at Lake Pleasant with a friend

Another beautiful sunrise reward for getting up so early
We saw two deer and a bunch of bunnies
It’s been awhile since I’ve hiked at Lake Pleasant, this reminded me of how much I enjoy the area

Running total:  164.4 miles toward 500 Miles in 2017
total elevation gain 211 feet
