A truck transporting a saguaro. This is not an unusual sighting and interesting how they could an arm to it would not detach from the main body. So, I've got a flooring project going but can't do that all day so out each day for a short hike including....
....driving Catalina Highway, passing Hairpin/Soldier Canyon where I'm leading a hike in two weeks, then hiking up Soldier Trail. I was looking to find the top of the canyon. I noticed a faint trail coming fin from my left so jumped on that and soon....
....how bout that!?! I found myself following a faint but cairned trail that bordered the canyon far below. I wonder if this continues for the length of the canyon???
Some interesting rock formations but exited the canyon on the right....
....regained the faint trail and then onto Soldier Trail. Will come back and complete that rim trail to see if it goes to the end of the canyon which I think is likely. Then, of course, can I drop into the canyon and hike down canyon to the road? On Monday, still working on the floor project I.....
....needed a midmorning break and headed to the Tortilitas where I picked up the Lower Javelina Trail. The sun rises and illuminates two saguaros.
I've not previously hiked this loop but it was a decent, albeit short hike of 3 miles. OK, back to the floor while waiting for kickoff of my mighty Buckeyes later today.
