Friday Fitness Hike

posted in: Hiking | 4

Bob, Mike, Linda, Sara, and I hiked a 8.25 mile loop starting from the Horse Staging Area. The morning was surprisingly cool for mid to late May. I was cold when we started and added a layer that I wore throughout the entire hike.

This is a look at one of the vertical banks in Stoneman/Pemberton Wash.

A dead tree in Stoneman Wash:

This textured region of desert is just south of the service road that connects the Long Loop to the Pemberton.

Bob, Mike, Linda, and Sara. This was a tricky shot to post-process due to shooting into the sun.

Another view from the service road…

    Amsterdam and McDowell Park. What a cultural contrast. Thanks for sharing.
