More Tucson Mountain Park

We talked about riding this morning, but ultimately wimped out and went for a walk in the desert.  The cool thing was we got to watch one guy make it up a really steep part of the trail.  It's about a 25% grade in places.  Here is a movie of the photos I took of him.  There is really stupid music, so if you're at work, mute.

We headed over to the 36th Street trailhead.  This is the nice part of the trail.

A dead saguaro.
This is a wash full of grass.  There's a wall at the end of it.

Why is this here?  The rocks are mortared, significant effort was required to construct this.

Jim was dispatched to see what was on the other side.

On the other side was another sandy wash, but at the level of the top of the wall.  We are well and truly confounded as to why this was constructed.

It was a pretty day, fairly overcast, but pleasant.

All in all, this is so much better than being in North Dakota.
