Around Blacktail

Today was Anneke's weekly shopping trip to Tucson, so Emma and I decided to hike around Blacktail hill. We have ridden our horses around the hill a couple of times, but it was always a challenge. There are numerous washes and some very dense brush. The thought was that by going on foot, I could explore a little more and find the best routes.

We were partially successful. The brush is very thick, but we found a game trail that might work out with some judicious pruning. After all, deer are not as tall as a horse and rider.

Still, Emma had a grand romp and the views a spectacular. But, as usual, pictures just can't capture the grandeur.
