Spotted a new eagle nest on the way up the valley as 2015 draws to a close.
Big mill homestead.
Conditions are not always perfect.
Crystal clear and cold.
Over to little mill to check in on pumpkin and squash and feed the birds at Joan and Marts.
Quick hike up to the lodge to check on supplies.
The hike out.
We finished up our Phoenix trip with hike up the south side of South Mountain and back. Starting at the warpaint trail head. We took the desert classic around to Corona de Loma and headed up the mountain. That's where the wolf pack took off. Beau and Kimber ventured over the peak and down into a valley before heading back up to the National trail head for a few hundred yards, then head right onto Old Man's trail and back down the mountain to Secret Trail, then back onto Desert Classic.
A wild life sighting
Classic western poses
