|Out and back again; my little woof and I hiked just over 3 miles with an elevation gain of 358'.
|Some people stop to smell the flowers. My girl stops to smell the coyote scat.
|Through the neighborhood and up we go.
|Pause for water and to catch our breath.
|I opted to do the Westwing Loop Trail.
|My poor ol' girl is getting old and tired.
|I hiked the South side and paralleled the lichen covered rocks.
|A helicopter was out to play.
|Patiently waiting for me.
|Beautiful, 70-degree day.
|At the intersection of this way or that way, I opted to go up rather than complete the loop.
|Looking at the North side of Westwing Mtn.
|Steeper than it looks.
|In my next life I'll be a geologist and I'll know what this is called.
|My little woof.
|Cholla (evil cactus) skeleton.
|Overlooking New River dam.
|Views from the summit.
|Returning to the Westwing Loop trail.
|Views from the trail.
|After the hike - we're clean, fed and relaxed.
