Dixie Mountain Loop – Phoenix Sonoran Preserve with a Friend

The days are getting longer and the sunrises are getting later, which means I don’t have to wake up in the middle of the night to go hiking!
I would love to know the story behind this trail… somehow I feel as though the story in my imagination is better!
The Cholla Forest is not somewhere you would want to get caught in high winds!
My weekday hiking partner in crime!

Running Total:  232.8 Hiking Miles

Horton Creek Trail – Payson, Arizona with a Friend

It was Friday the 13th, where else would I go to hike but the woods!
There was evidence of fire all along the trail
Cooler temps, trees, a running creek, and great company… it was a perfect hike
Just enough color for me to realize it really is Fall

Running Total:  237.2 Hiking Miles
Total Elevation Gain 509 feet

Zero biking miles
