Linda, Bob, and I hiked an 8.4 mile loop on the Tortoise, Pemberton, Lariat, Granite, and Wagner trails.
This is sunrise from the Horse Staging Area. (I got to the park early for this shot. The sun was well up when we started our hike from the Wagner Trailhead at 6:00am.)
We saw a horned toad on the Pemberton Trail. When looking at the camera’s viewscreen, it was very hard to see the lizard as it blends in very well with the dirt and gravel on the trail.

A saguaro just off the Lariat Trail. I used a single exposure for this shot.
