Anyway, so pretty driving up there, got to this one lookout, and thought I would take a picture...when the camera said "all pictures would be saved to the internal memory"...OH NO!!!! I had forgot the card again. I really have to prepare better in the future!
I was able to adjust the picture size down which allowed me to take alot more pictures...took 6 with my cell too, course they are not nearly as good.
When I got to Summerhaven, thought I would buy a card there, the store has a sign out, CLOSED till October 19th.! ARRRGGG.... Thought, ok, the SKI lift store would work....NOT...the SKI lift was closed too...good grief...I had planned to ride it to the top. Oh well...
Drove up the back road to the very top of the Mt. There was Aspen in their glory, and the Big tooth Maple too. WOW.
However as I arrived at the top, a BUNCH of Wild TURKEY'S are running off and on the road... WOW, I never even knew they were up there. OF all the times I have been there, NEVER saw any before....
Color seen from this trail....WOW...looks afire!
Anyway, drove back up to the top, there were more folk there, and this one guy telling me about the trail I ended up taking. Had not planned to go as far as I did on it, but it led alog the top pretty much, and I was not curious as to where it would go.
So here we go, heading down the Mt. Lemmon trail (phone camera)
Hope this rock looks as big when clicked on as it really was. WOW, AWESOME, would that I could have a picture in front of it. I believe this may be Lemmon Rock.
Awesome, the massive rocks up there.
I suppose one would miss some of these rocks, if the forest had never been destroyed. (Phone camera)
Aspen along the trail back. (phone camera)
WOW, (regular camera)
Trail along here IS actually a road, one can take an ATV on, it you had a mind to!
This is really quiet a nice easy trail. I still used my nordic walking poles which helps to steady me, and supports my knees.
More color....hey that is why I am up here!
I had hiked that trail when I was in the Catalina State Park, had NO idea where it ended, and now I knew. WOW what a view looking WEST, I was up above PUSCH Ridge, looking way down on Oracle Rd. and the Catalina State Park. WOW.
I am thinking this "meadow" is what the trail was named for!
More color along this trail
This is Ski Valley from above.
I will take a rest for now. MORE pictures tomorrow, with alot more color!
