Heather, Marilyn, Marilyn, Nick, Ben, Bob, and Mike joined me for a hike of the Mesquite Canyon / Ford Canyon Loop at White Tank Mountain Regional Park.
This is a view of the Mesquite Canyon Trail from the Ford Canyon Trail.
Ben, Marilyn, Nick, Heather, Mike, Bob, and Marilyn:
We saw pools of water on our way down Ford Canyon. Heather says that this was the most water she’s seen in the canyon.
This was probably the hardest (most technical) section of our descent of Ford Canyon.
I stood atop a small boulder pile to get this photo…
It’s very beautiful here. This is my favorite loop hike in all of the Maricopa County parks.
Poppies – I don’t think I ever remember seeing poppies in November.
