Toothaker/Coldwater Loop – Estrella Mountain Regional Park with a Friend

After a long hot summer this cool, cloudy morning was just what the hiker ordered!
Have you ever wondered how strong saguaro spikes are?
We’ve logged a lot of miles together since meeting at this park this time last year, while both participating in the 100 Miles in 100 Days Challenge
The hills have eyes… and so do the cactus

Black Rock Long Loop – White Tank Mountain Regional Park with a Friend and the Dogs

Each time I leave for a hike my girls look at me with such wanting. But they are getting older, and Bertha can’t go much more than 2 miles, so I promised them their own hiking day!
Bertha taking advantage of a small break to get some pets from my friend who joined us.
It’s cool enough now that we took our time getting to the trail and were perfectly comfortable outside at 1030.
Posing with the saguaros… and both girls looking in the same direction!
