Sunday March 1, 2020 Queen’s Canyon Kofa, Arizona
Posted two blogs today. Read the one below this to stay in sequence.
I was thinking of doing some hiking today but I wasn’t sure where.
Once I got it going I drove on up the road a couple miles.
I stopped here and got out to have a look. I could go two ways so I picked the easiest way off to the right up a creek.
I walked up through this creek to get back into the area there to have a look around.
Lots of desert type stuff to avoid while walking around.
Some of the places were lush with green grass.
I could only go a short distance on that walk so I returned to where the van was parked and went off to the left this time.
It was pretty rocky but not too hard to go on up stepping on rocks.
I walked through this area headed on up to the big rock.
I continued on up the canyon going through here.
I walked by this interesting cactus. Looks like it’s getting some new life.
I walked up onto that lower ridge on the right, not that high one.
And eventually started on back taking this different way.
I noticed this little cactus which was getting ready to bloom I think.
It’s always good to see the van on the way back from a hike.
After a good rest and break I drove the van back down the road a mile or so to the Signal Peak trailhead and parked. I went for another short hike up this canyon keeping to the right side for a ways.
The creek I walked through had some nice rocks to walk on. I picked my way through the rocks very carefully.
I only went about a mile and turned on back towards the van taking a different route back.
I missed the van a little on the way back but only had to walk up the road a bit to find it.
Coffee and snacks
After a good break I drove on down the Queen’s road headed out and stopped in this spot in the shade for another break.
I had some coffee and made 3 biscuits.
Tonight’s camp spot
After eating I drove down the road putting the rough stuff behind me and camped in this spot just before the sun went down.
I did three walks today which kept me busy most of the day and now I’m tired out.
Nice day for walking and enjoying the desert.
