The Arizona Trail

Thursday, September 28th, 2017

The Arizona National Scenic Trail stretches 800 miles across the entire length of the state to connect deserts, mountains, forests, canyons, wilderness, history, communities and people. This non-motorized trail showcases Arizona’s diverse vegetation, wildlife and scenery, as well as unique historic and cultural sites. The route provides unparalleled opportunities for hikers, mountain bikers, equestrians and other trail users. This photo was taken where the AZ Trail passes along Martinez Canyon, a very scenic, but hard to reach area!

Autumn is a great time to get out on the trail and explore the fantastic scenery!  Call us to plan a guided hike or bike ride and experience the beauty of the AZ Trail and Southern Arizona. 🌵

Wild Mustangs

Tuesday, September 5th, 2017

While biking on the Los Burros trail in the Tonto National Forest this weekend, I came across a herd of wild horses!  There were six, and they were beautiful animals!  I got off my bike and approached them slowly.  This stallion also approached me slowly and eventually allowed me to pet him.  Then he decided to check-out my bike and backpack.  I guess I had his approval to continue on by.

The Salt River wild horses are a historic herd of wild horses, the last remnants of the vast herds of wild horses that once roamed our planes, but unlike the bison, we still have a chance to preserve them for generations to come.  The word Mustang or Wild Horse is used interchangeably.
