We took a sunset hike with a ranger led group on 5 December. Amazing these plants can grow out of the rocks. The wavy pattern on this barrel cactus caught my eye. A wavy sunset too! The almost full moon rose to guide us back to Sus picnic area. We went back on December 18th for a really great geography presentation. We took our own sunset hike after a rainy morning. Great lighting. We took the Hugh Norris Trail about a mile up to the large boulders and overlook. Our friends – they have so much personality! So nice to have this saguaro pose just right there in front of the sunset! Such a beautiful place to watch the sunset. Wish it was a closer drive to the condo.
