Hiking The Superstistion Mountains

This morning we drove to Apache Junction to hike in the Superstition Mountains. What a beautiful morning for a hike. The sky was so blue and the sun was warm. By the time we arrived at the trail head the parking lot was already full, we managed to get the last spot. I haven’t built up my hiking tolerance yet and today’s hike was about as much as I could handle. I feel sorry for Chris because she could have gone further but we had already spent an hour going practically straight up and I was toast. The scenery we saw was beautiful but we missed the best because we turned around when we did.
It felt so good getting back to the RV and just sitting in the Sun, having a beer to replenish the fluids we lost. Again this evening we had a BBQ and watched another spectacular sunset.

This evening we walked around the campground which would not be possible if the moon was not as full and bright as it was. Earlier the coyotes were so loud that it sounded like they were right next to us. Then just as quick as they started they were gone. I’m sure they will be back sometime this evening.

Our trail took us up and over this first ridge
