First Summer Hike In The Santa Catalina Mountains, June, 2015   Leave a comment

The remnants of Hurricane Andres moved into southern Arizona yesterday bringing clouds, scattered showers and cooler weather to the area. Hikers gathered at the Lower Butterfly parking at the Bigelow trailhead in a light rain to begin the Sabino Canyon Volunteer Naturalists (SCVN) first hike of the summer in the Santa Catalina mountains. By the time we began our scheduled 9:00 am hike to Leopold Point, the rain had stopped and we were able to complete the four mile hike without rain. Temperatures in the fifties and occasional strong wind gusts made wind-breaker jackets standard apparel, it was a perfect day for hiking in the Santa Catalina’s.

The Sabino Canyon Volunteer Nationalists (SCVN) lead the first Friday summer hike on Mount Lemmon yesterday. The schedule will every Friday through August 31st. You can get the complete schedule by going to http://sabinonaturalists

Yesterday’s hike on Butterfly #16 and Incinerator #18A to Leopold Point. This hike is one of my favorites and one of the few that Joy and I have hikes together. If you click here to see my blog posting on our hike a year ago. If you watch the video, you can see why Joy doesn’t hike with me anymore.

There were about 18 people in yesterday’s SCVN hike. While yesterday’s temperature hit a record 107 degrees, the temperature on the mountain was in the upper 70’s, which is way we spend the summer hiking on Mount Lemmon.
