Second windy day in a row but better tomorrow. Front came through and the mid 90's are gone but back by Sunday. Today, the high was 70 so I went for a hike at Sabino Canyon. The visitor center has a lot of neat displays.
In addition to signs warning of mountain lion sightings, active rattlesnakes a new one has appeared. A rabid fox wandered up to a guy and bit him a few weeks ago.
Lot of people out today enjoying the cooler temps as I cross a bridge and head to Blackett's Ridge Trail. Just wanted to take it easy which I find difficult to do, but did.
What impressed me the most visually (the steepness of the trail always makes an impression on me) was the fine display of flowers on the Ocotillo plants.
They are not considered a cactus, rather a bush with long canes. I stopped prior to the top and....
....turned around and headed back down. Didn't want to stress the legs too much so finished with a bit over 4 miles and 1100' of climbing.
