We started off hiking part of the Pemberton and then the Scenic Trail for last Friday’s hike. When we got to the Cinch Trail, several of us went on, eventually making it over to Stoneman Wash, returning by way of the Pemberton. Amy continued on the Scenic Trail with the rest of the group. Total distance for those of us doing the long hike was 9.5 miles. The short hike was roughly 4.5 miles.
This is a view of Four Peaks from the Scenic Trail.
We took this photo at the intersection of the Cinch and Scenic Trails. Nancy, Janet, Norm, and Hiungi hiked the Cinch Trail with me. Amy lead the rest back to the Trailhead Staging Area via the Scenic Trail and then a short section of Pemberton.

The poppies are in bloom too, and have been for several weeks now.
Lots of new buds on this saguaro:
