Marilyn and I hiked eight miles in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve and McDowell Mountain Park.  We hiked the following trails (in order): Marcus Landslide, Rock Knob, Pemberton, Gooseneck, Rock Knob, Marcus Landslide, Feldspar, Tom’s Thumb.

Mushroom rock near the start of the Marcus Landslide Trail:


Rock pile on the Gooseneck Trail.

The Gooseneck Trail goes through this rock formation.


Climber on Sven Slab – I think he’s on the upper part of the first pitch of Quaker Oats (5.5).  It’s also possible that he top-roped the climb to the left of Quaker Oats called I Sinkso (5.8R).
