Our Hiking Day

Collin and I went hiking at the Spur Cross Conservation Area in Cave Creek, AZ today! The path was muddy due to the rain yesterday, and the creeks were impassable, but we had a good time nonetheless. Peter came along but the rest of the kids spent the day at their aunt & uncle's.

At the trailhead 

That's not an optical illusion - that sugaro cactus really is that huge. 

Mutant cactus

Loving our date day!


  1. What a nice day!! That mutant cactus is amazing.

  2. Wait, who took the pic if the other kids didn't come? The mutant cactus?!

  3. That looks like a fantastic hike! Glad you had a good time.

  4. A kind lady also hiking the trail offered to take one of us together. :)


Please be respectful and courteous, and I will reciprocate.
