I drove to Papago Park outside Phoenix in nearly 100 degrees for a good mountain, desert hike.
Though I only hiked 3 miles, a lot of it was rough going as I climbed around in the mountains. I could feel the use of new muscles when I was done.
All the living creatures were hiding from the sun except a few lizards and the Arizona Quail gregariously squawking in the desert brush. In the past I’ve seen tarantulas emerging from they holes, but today they were keeping cool.
