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. 🌵

Red Spotted Toad

Friday, August 25th, 2017

Out for a nice morning hike in Molina Basin, located just a few miles up Mount Lemmon within the Coronado National Park just outside of Tucson and ran into a few of these tiny hoppers, the Red Spotted Toad.

These are so tiny and so cute but those red spots are not just for looks. These little creatures pack a poisonous punch so don’t lick it, I’m sure the temptation is there but you’ve been warned.

The top photo is zoomed in to see his red spots  and the photo below reveals just how little these are .

It’s easy to see the big things but if you slow the go then you can capture the smaller details in life.

Having a professional guide escort you thru this amazing ecosystem here in the Sonoran Desert you’ll be sure to see some amazing things that you would pass up if not paying attention.
