Friday’s hike started at the trailhead for the North Trail. Linda, Janet, Bob, and I joined Ranger Amy for a 7.2 mile hike that utilized the North Trail, Chuparosa, and part of the Pemberton Trail. We focused on hiking, mostly. I took few photos on this hike than usual.
I took this photo before the hike begin, shortly after sunrise:
Linda took this photo of Bob and Amy at Cedar Tank. The tank has water in it and Amy saw swimming shrimp. There were also mosquitoes there, so we didn’t stay long.
We stopped to take a group photo near an old water tank no longer capable of holding water due to many bullet holes.
We saw these large saguaros as we were nearing the Chuparosa Trail on our way back.
