Phoenix AZ, Agua Fria Trl

In the Phoenix area there is a 42 mile loop trail that circles the valley. The Maricopa Trail.  There are several trailheads around the loop and the Agua Fria trailhead is out near Lake Pleasant.  Mike and I did a few miles on this portion of the trail.

Our wild critters of the day were burros.  We came face to face with the male (called a "jack") almost as soon as we hit the trail.  As you can see, he has been in a few fights.  Later on we spotted the small herd made up of 3 females and 2 little ones.  We spotted a couple more up on a ridge.  Very cool!
