Hiking: Maricopa Trail, Lake Pleasant

Maricopa Trail.  This trailhead is tricky to find, I guess they don't want too many people hiking here.  
Up we go, Zane.
New Waddell Dam.
CAP canal. 
X marks the spot.
A face to love.
Random hiker/geocacher we met today.
Taking the opportunity to do some dog training as we hike.  
Frank exploring.  This would be amazing if it were full of water.
Zane getting to explore off leash.  Several times today I'd let him go, test his recall and he did really well.
Exploring Malinois.
Zane loved this area, he ran up and down and all around.
This area was the highlight of the hike, a good place to explore.
Packrats nest.
This is why I call him "off trail Frank".
There are many wild burros in the area, a lot of good smells for Zane to explore.
A holey roller - ha ha ha.
Taking a break.  I sprinkled Zane with water and he licked it all off.  
5 miles.  Lowest elevation 1508.  Highest elevation 1833.  Elevation gain 325 feet.  A lovely 75 degree day.
