Hiking: Yavapai Point Trail, Lake Pleasant

Looking up. 
Part of Yavapai Point Trail parallels Pipeline Canyon Trail, on the other side of the canyon.
Saguaro cactus fruit.  The Tohono O'odham call the fruit "bahidaj".
A grasshopper color coordinated to his environment.   
I don't recall seeing as much saguaro cactus fruit as I have this summer. 
Looking back on our way up. 
My hiking buddy Frank, doing Frank things. 
Looking down on Pipeline Canyon Trail at the bridge that crosses the water. 
The view from the top, also where we had our snack. 
Frank at the top. 
Me at the top. 
Me, on our way down.
Lowest elevation 2003 ft, highest elevation 2382 ft, for an elevation gain of 379 ft.
To find the Yavapai Point Trail, park at the North end of the Pipeline Canyon Trail, from this trail you'll find the trailhead signs to Yavapai Point Trail.  
Today's hike was 3.2 miles.
(YTD: 76.3 miles)
