Spur Cross Loop 10/09/10

Spur Cross Conservation Area
Cave Creek, Arizona
Mileage 11.26
Time 2:41
AEG 11461ft

Matt and I originally planned a short day trip to Tucson for a trail run in Sabino Canyon, at the last minute, we decided to stay close to home and explore the Spur Cross Ranch Recreation Area. Sure glad we did. This was all new territory for me, and we were treated to impressive views of Elephant and Sugarloaf Mountains. Not only that, this area has some of the greatest concentration of giant Saguaro Cacti in the state. It was a beautiful, and somewhat cool morning in the desert, a nice break from four months of one-hundred-plus temperatures.
