Friday Fitness Hike

Bob and I hiked a little over eight and half miles in the Competitive Track area.  We started off on the Tech Loop, made our way into Stoneman Wash, went up a feeder wash to Pemberton, and then made our way over to the Long Loop via a wash that I had not yet visited. We then followed a minor, but passable wash to another segment of the Long Loop which we used for our return.

This is a view from the parking lot just before sunrise:

We saw this tortoise as we were hiking up the hill leading to T-Bone Ridge on the Technical Loop. Linda and I saw a tortoise – possibly even this same tortoise – in pretty much the same location in 2014.

We made our way into this wash which we used to hike back to the Long Loop:

The Senna plants are blooming again!
