The first fox I've seen in the wild, unfortunately, she's in heaven.

Hiking: Castle Creek Trail, Hells Canyon Wilderness (near Lake Pleasant)

This is exactly how my hiking buddy Frank and I began each morning.
Frank.
The trailhead and a sign-in log.
Liam standing on some unknown (to me) history.
The recent rains provided a lot of greenery. 
An old dam and a water pipe that collected spring water.

Frank and Liam.
Liam Ari Puppypants.
A palm tree in the desert.   
Buried treasure.
Buried treasure (a drill bit that is stuck).


The ocotillo are very green.

Being a desert dweller, I wonder what life was like when this was full of water.
Liam. 
Liam is a very good hiking buddy, I love him so. 


Some rocks are too big to put in my pocket and carry home.  
Hearts in nature.

Frank and Liam, and another neat rock.

Glass insulators: want, but I can't reach.

Cacti meets Malinois.

I spy: Frank.
There were many well done cairns on this trail.
Frank and Liam enjoying the view.
Me, with Liam; Lake Pleasant in the distance.

"Is it that way, Frank?" -Liam
A heart shaped rock to finish the hike.
