Our plan for the day was to hike to the top of Wasson Peak. We made it into a loop of 8.75 miles with 1800 feet of elevation gain. It was a perfect day to be in the desert with friends. I'll let the pics tell the story...
|Just a half mile into the trail the views started opening up around us.|
|We were headed for the top of one of the peaks in the distance.|
|All day we searched for the elusive crested saguaro, |
mutants that are scattered across the Sonoran desert.
This beauty had us all excited!
|The intrepid hikers at the summit. 360 degree views!|
|Coming down the Hugh Norris Trail, lots of switchbacks.|
Lisa, Pam and John are in the picture...
|Amazing views all day long!|

|This guy has so much going on, it looks like he's juggling!|
