Hiking at Cave Creek Recreation Area

James, Cierra (woof!) and I hiked about six miles today. We found four of the six geocaches we were in search of. One we simply could not find; the other we decided was too far away and we'd try it another day. I did find three Travel Bugs, I love TB's!

One of my hiking buddies told me that I should occasionally stop and look to see where I came from, so that's what I did, and this was the view.

Little flowers.

One of the largest saguaros I have ever seen, with the afternoon sun.

More little flowers.

Two of my favorite faces.

Cierra making her way along the trail. Her dog pack is almost always off center. This seems to bother me a great deal more than it concerns her. I wish her dog pack was waterproof, that would almost make it perfect.

Lots of little flowers.

James and Cierra, this makes my heart all warm and mushy.

Cierra. The best hiking dog.

James, tossing rocks in to the river for Cierra.

Cierra, loving life.

Fetch *this* rock: OK, got it!

James, making sense of the map for me.
