Seven Falls Hike

Iíve fallen behind in story writing, I believe that I have five and possibly six adventure stories to tell everyone about.

Our gang did a 10 mile walk hike on the first Saturday in December, we started at Sabino Canyon trailhead, and walked the Bear Canyon trail leading to the Seven Falls area. We had a few miles of paved road to get to the trailhead, and we had incredible vistas of the hills. This wide picture has Lloyd on the road with the canyon notch that has the start of our trail, in the center.

One of our resting spots had us in the dry wash, where the trail crossed, and this really neat and very green grass was flowering and seeding out. This had all of us interested in the plant life of the canyon.

The Saguaro were striking with the dark blue sky. Every bend of the trail gave us a new view of the desert plant life.

This is the panorama of the canyon wall just before the Seven Falls valley is in view, in the center of the frame. This canyon has no running water, except during rains and when the snow melts in the high country. we found only a trickle running through the pools at the base of the falls.

This is the valley of the Seven Falls. There is a pool of water lower center, and if you click on the picture to expand it, there are people on the third level of the falls, orange and white shirts.

Lloyd and I stayed at the lower level of the falls, but the others with more energy, climbed to the upper levels. This is the group, posing for a picture being taken by another hiker, Steve, Maria, Bill, Linda, and Mark.

Another parting shot of the Bear Canyon, and trail to the Seven Falls.

Not planned, but a fun stop. Our gang at Rustyís Family Restaurant and Sports Grill on Grant Road, here in Tucson. Linda, Bill, Mark, Maria, and Steve lower right, at our table, Lloyd and I were taking pictures. We all had various amounts of muscle discomfort in the days after, but itís just a part of conditioning for more adventures.
