Panorama Trail

We came to Show Low based on reading about the White Mountains trail system on the blog, Occupation of Independence.  Now that Jim and I are older, we enjoy the rocky technical trails much less than we used to.  The enjoyment of the challenge of negotiating the rocks is now out weighed by my desire to not be maimed.  It just takes too long to heal. 
Today we walked part of the Panorama trail.  It starts out as a packed dirt trail through the piney woods.  It reminds me a lot of Bend, except without so many rocks, and way fewer people.  We saw seven people on the trail.  Seven!

The trail eventually heads up and out of the woods.  The view is lovely and green.  Those little lumps out in the distance are cinder cones.

Tomorrow we'll return with the bikes, and enjoy some suffering at 6,750 feet.
