Hiking and Biking 500 Miles in 2017 – Week 39

September 28, 2017

Black Rock Trail Long Loop – White Tank Mountain Regional Park with the dogs

It’s finally cooling off enough to start taking the dogs on short hikes.
This is the first time I’ve hiked without other people since I saw a snake in March. I’ve made a lot of friends and have enjoyed hiking with others more than I thought I would, but there’s a certain peace that only comes to me when I’m on the trail alone.
These smiling faces make the issues I had with my hydration bladder, forgetting the gentle leader, and cactus paws completely irrelevant.
Who doesn’t love dancing saguaros?
