Starr Pass Trail

Today we hiked the Starr Pass trail.  It was a windy day, but it was just lovely.  There were many mountain bikers out on the trail.  The ocotillos are lush and green.  It's amazing how much they've leafed out in the last few weeks.

This is from the top of the climb.

I love this view of the three hills.

This is a switchback on the trail.  One of these days I want to sit out here with lounge chairs and wait for mountain bikers to ride through here.  I want to see someone ride this.  It's so much worse than it looks in the picture.

We covered about four miles.  We were at the top in 40 minutes, it takes longer to go down due to the loose rocks.  I'm pretty happy with that time.  Towards the end the foot was starting to yelp a little, but over all I think I can say I'm better off than I was before surgery.  


  1. Wow, it must be much warmer this winter than last! The ocotillos were just barely starting to green when we left end of February. So glad your foot is doing well!
