Long hot day today in the Superstition Mountain Wilderness. This part of the AZT is uncharacteristically steep and rocky and dry.
I bypassed a few stock ponds before I found some water that didn’t scare me
Saw some interesting wood
A huge (and living) alligator juniper
A pinkish white version of my favorite flower
Some great cacti
And some beautiful scenery
I see one or two rattlesnakes almost every day around 4 pm.
This guy was not too active but completely blocked the trail
350 miles into this thing,
