A rest day but had to get out and do a small hike once a brief period of morning rain departed. The Linda Vista trail head is about 1/2 mile from my place and has a relatively easy trail to follow. I found a guy standing and looking at the peaks. Had a nice talk with him about access to each peak and the challenges associated with the approaches.
The clouds go rolling by over the Sonoran desert.
The cactus are plentiful and so I keep most of my attention diverted to the rolling trail as it partially ascends the foothills of the Catalinas.
Some of the Saguaro cactus are massive and funky looking. Looking......
......to the southwest, the skies are clearing and setting up a great week of weather. I finish the 2.2 mile hike with 450' elevation gain and soon find myself.....
....back at the condo and looking at the peaks where the fir trees are supporting the snow that fell up there this morning. Look closely to notice the dusting of white. I should be up there this week via bike.
