Hiking The Southerland Trail in Catalina State Park — Photo Essay   Leave a comment

Hiking The Southerland Trail in Catalina State Park (Click on any of the tiled images for a larger view in a slideshow format.) — Images by kenne


This trail is usually an excellent wildflower trail, not this year. The primary reason is very little rain this winter. Some recent rains will help for propagating next year’s wildflowers — no “Fields of Poppies” this year.

Aspen Loop, hiking, Mt. LemmonTwo of My Fellow SCVN Hiking Guides, Ricki and Tosh (August 2013) — Image by kenne

This Sunday we are experiencing some rain, the first since early August (already several inches of snow on Mt. Lemmon), so I’ve been going through some of my old photos and ran across one of two my favorite people.

This photo is on the Aspen Loop on Mt. Lemmon, this part of the trail, which was burned during the 2003 Aspen Wildfire.

I love the eight-plus mile hike to Hutch’s Pool in the Pusch Ridge Wilderness area in the Santa Catalina Mountains, but because of a shoulder injury, I will not be a part of this Fall’s hike — Bummer!

End Of The Trail   Leave a comment

My days as a hiking guide
May soon have long since passed
But, for this hiker, the trail never ends.

The call of the trail has not silenced
In the course of the coyote’s song
Echoing down through the canyon.

The pace may have slowed,
Canyon walls gotten steeper
Only to be balanced by desire.

But out there in the canyons
The ghosts of young trail runners
Brings back images for the past.

Casting strides to the wind
Hiking trails that have no end
Chasing trail-dust on the wind.
