Larch Mountain

12 miles of hiking • 1500' elevation gain •

Starting from about MP 9 on Larch Mountain Road(where they stopped plowing). Grueling uphill grind through heavy wet snow. Was pleased to have mild winds and some views under the cloud deck at the summit. Totally gassed afterward.

Lower Macleay to Collins Sanctuary

6 miles of hiking • 750' elevation gain •

Another exploration of our wonderful urban trails. I forgot how gorgeous Balch Creek Canyon is, very quiet in the morning,and then extremely crowded in the afternoon on return. Instead of going up to Pittock Mansion, I looped the Audobon trails. The Collins Sanctuary was delightful. Looks so pretty with NO IVY!

Markham loop

4 miles of hiking • 750' elevation gain •

Variation on the last trip, just wanted to explore more of this trail system. Trails are quieter than Forest Park, but the ivy is frightening in some areas.

Who needs an umbrella when you have trees?

Did a loop with the Marquam, flicker and Towhee trails. How lucky are we to have such wonderful trails right in town? Dreary moods begone!

Tolinda Trail-Forest Park

3.5 miles of hiking • 500' elevation gain •

New trail to me-connects lower part of Germantown Rd to Leif Ericson drive. Evidence of old homesite. Muddy and slippery fun.

Tanque Verde, Saguaro NP

18 miles of hiking • 5250' elevation gain • 1 night

A challenging trip in the desert to start the year. Went up Tanque Verde Ridge to camp at Juniper Basin, 6000 ft where there was some snow. We set up camp then climbed Tanque Verde Peak. Sun went down and temps plummeted. Cold night in the tent, need to fix that situation.
