Primrose Overlook

Sometimes being in the wrong place works out fine. My hike today was an example of that.

Johnson’s Hole or Bowl?

I completed my longest hike of the year today - 12.2 miles. My previous best was 8 miles. The purpose of today's hike was distance, not climbing. I can proudly say - MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

Mountain Bikers for Shore(line)

This time I went much deeper into the trail. By so doing, I found one of its greatest treasures - lots of mountain biking trails and lots of mountain bikers riding.

Lighting the Valley

While hiking this morning on the west side of Big Baldy, I looked out into the valley and saw a splash of light from the rising sun. It dawned on me, pun intended, that the light was funneling through the canyon almost like what a flashlight would do.

Bounteous Dusk

Tonight I had finished dinner and cleaning up the kitchen and saw that there was still daylight out. On top of that, Ann was heading up to do homework. So I made, what turned out to be a terrific decision, to grab my gear and head out to the Squaw Peak road and try to grab some last light pix.
