Lake Pleasant Hike

Marilyn and I hiked 8.6 miles at Lake Pleasant on Sunday. We hiked the Pipeline Canyon, Yavapai Point, and Wild Burro trails. We both liked the Pipeline Canyon and Yavapai Point trails. The portion of the Wild Burro trail that we hiked wasn’t quite as impressive, though we did see some wild burros as we made our way back; this made it worthwhile.

The view from one of the picnic sites near the parking lot:

A view from the Wild Burro Trail. The yellow vegetation are plants that are drying up. It’s somewhat more yellow in this photo than it was in real life.

I got these photos with my HX90V.  (I used the A7RII for the earlier photos.)
