This morning I woke up at 6:30 and couldn't go back to sleep, so I did my brain games and then got up to see how the day looks.
Beautiful! This is going to be a day to get outside and go on a hike. Checked my Google and found a trail in the Usery Mountain Regional Park, just north of Apache Junction. So nice there are so many trails within 15 miles of Kay's house.
This is what I have to listen to each morning as I sit down with my breakfast. I believe they are Great tailed Grackles.
After coffee and breakfast, Yuma and I headed out in the Jeep at 11:30 to do some hiking. Didn't take long and we were driving through the park.We pulled into a very crowded parking lot. Hiking the trails is a very popular exercise in this area. And many are from out of state just like me.

I slipped a number of times on the sandy trail, but as I got near the bottom coming back down, I managed to take a hard fall. My feet and pole slipped from under me and I landed flat on my back. Nothing broken, but I will probably be sore tonight. Had about 8000 steps today and we arrived home around 2:30. There were a number of mountains, so I wasn't sure which one was Lone Mountain, but I was certainly tired when I returned home and put my feet up.
Thanks for stopping by.
That was an awesome hiking trail. I'm sorry you fell, but you did get a lot of beautiful pictures. The one of the back side of Goldfield Mts. is super. I hope you're in one piece in the morning.ReplyDelete
Usery is our favorite of the Maricopa County Parks for a Cactus League trip. As you know it's well located for most things on the east side.ReplyDelete
