Sunday Hike

posted in: Hiking | 1

Marilyn and I hiked the Scenic Trail on Sunday.  Temperatures were in the mid-eighties with roughly fifty percent humidity.  Marilyn saw a shiny snake as she hiked. I saw a small flowering cactus, which is, I think, kind of unusual for this time of year.

Early in the hike on the Scenic Trail. I didn’t realize that the sun was in frame – if I had, I would have taken measures to eliminate the lens flare.

Another view from the Scenic Trail: Red Mountain is visible from most places where the trail follows the ridge.

This is a Graham’s Pincushion cactus:
