Tuesday, February 21 - We returned to Tucson Mountain Park this morning to hike among the Saguaro. It is a very short drive from Justin's Diamond J Campground to the desert full of trails. Actually, we could have walked right out the back of the campground into Tucson Mountain Park but that would have made today's hike way to long.
This is a very rocky trail. Have your boots on.
The terrain changed as we changed elevations.
We decided to cut across country making our own trail. We ended up wandering around the desert until we found a road. We then continued across country keeping the road in sight as a marker. After another mile or so, we stumbled on the truck parked beside a picnic area.
This guy sure has the arms.
If you do this trail, be careful of the fishhook cacti. They are close to the trail.
The birds were enjoying the gorgeous day too.
We say good bye to Tucson. Tomorrow, Thursday, we will be in Sedona, AZ. The weather is much colder. We will make the best of it for sure.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y’all back real soon. Have a great day!
