Once again Tucson Mountain Park trail map fooled us...or rather the lack of signage and additional trails that are not mapped. BUT, on such a gorgeous day we enjoyed the heck out of the hike and met some new folks too! Jim and Allison are fellow full timers, mountain bikers, road bikers, hikers and have a blog too! We hope to meet up with them to check out some (new to us) biking trails soon.
This little guy brightened my walk around the RV park this morning with his finery and happy song. I hear there are a couple of pairs living around here.
Hoped to wake up to a dusting this morning at camp, but our rain stopped before it got cold enough. The surrounding peaks in Tucson Mountain Park got a dusting though.
|Heading over Gates Pass Rd toward Camino De Oeste trail head.|
|Approaching the trail head we interrupted this guy...|
|It's a nippy 40 degrees, but as pretty as can be.|
|Bowen House ruins.|
|Endless shades of green around us.|
|You didn't think I could refrain from cactus photos for a day, did you? |
