Today’s hike went up and down Lousley Hill. At the bottom of the hill, we hiked down Lousley Wash and made our way over to the Verde Trail. We then picked up the North Trail and took the Chuparosa out to Pemberton. We completed our loop by taking Lousley Wash back to the Lousley Hill trailhead. Total distance covered was almost seven miles.
There were eight of us on the hike today: Me, Marilyn, Linda, Janet, Bob, Sue, Sharon, and Amy.
