This afternoon, Elizabeth and I decided to do the Pinnacle Peak hike. It was her first to that North Scottsdale trail in over a year. And it was her first ever to the Standing Stones I discovered on the spring equinox a year ago (see below).
It was a great day for hiking. The temperature was 70°F at the trailhead, 72°F at our home. Elizabeth wore a Serbian flag and crest shirt which she got in Belgrade last year. So when she puffed up her chest proudly at the trail summit, I joked that she was representing Serbia on this hike. 🙂
Here some other photos from this little hike.
And now, here are some photos from the Standing Stones adventure. I’ve included some I took during my previous hike here.

MY SPRING EQUINOX HIKE LEADS ME TO A SACRED SITE FOR THE FIRST TIME; PLAYING A GOOD SAMARITAN TO A SUFFERING TOURIST AND MEETING “COLIN FIRTH?”
Expect the unexpected. That has become a modus operandi for me during my Arizona desert hikes. Today, I discovered the “Standing Stones” at Pinnacle Peak a Scottsdale mountain I have hiked dozens of times over the last 30 or so years.
I had no idea they existed when I was guided to revisit the Pinnacle Peak trail. I had intended to dedicate the hike to the Spring Equinox which will take place in a few hours.
