The trail climbed and climbed until it topped out at a pass of sorts, at about three miles. We stopped for a small snack on a nice bench there and relaxed a bit. Then we climbed some more. It wasn't a bad climb, but just another climb that we had forgotten about.
We finally merged with the Go John trail which leads down a series of switchbacks to the parking lot
We got back to camp and per Runkeeper, on the phone, we had covered 5.53 miles. No wonder we were bushed! Earlier, as we hiked, I asked Lynn what she was thinking about. She said that she was trying to decide whether to make ham sandwiches with smoked cheddar or Swiss cheese for our lunch meal... A nice distraction, for sure... Whatta gal, she is.
We decided on smoked cheddar and had a fine meal.
Later, I was looking for tracks at our site and identified javalina tracks here with tiny prints, obviously belonging to babies. At least we know that they are present here. Now to keep a keen eye out for them. Lena, beware!
We have a new HDTV in the coach now, so we were able to watch PBS for a couple of hours this evening. There are about twenty OTA (Over The Air) channels here in the Phoenix area. The antenna on Shorty did the job. A nice distraction from reality for a change, for us anyway. Plus, this TV weighs only about ten pounds compared with the monster I removed at home. Makes a big difference on the rough roads, since the dash doesn't dance at all now. Ahhh, technology...
Thanks again for dropping around for a view. You are the reason I invest the time in this and the photos. Without friends with whom to share life, what is the point?
