Hikers on the Finger Rock Trail in the Santa Catalina Mountains
Leftover snow with underlying ice made the going a tad slow in places. Seven miles and 3,000 vertical feet to Linda Vista, a good hike for my feet. Nice to be breathing in the fresh scents of the desert plants and stimulating conversation with friends. A new trail for me. Maybe next time, after the ice melts, The Finger, a thousand or so feet higher.
