Dateline 12 May 2015
The unusually cool weather continues and while it was a bit chilly and somewhat windy on Mt Lemmon a splendid day was had by all. The hike down the Lemmon Rock Trail, through the Wilderness of Rocks, across Marshall Saddle and down Marshall Gulch was full of delights. One reason to take this steep trail is the amazing vistas. Just now the strawberries and New Mexico raspberries are in full bloom – very striking! Everywhere was a touch of spring green from the bracken along the trail, the young pines and Douglas firs, and the knee-high oaks and maples along Marshall Gulch. It was the best kind of hike – too short!
