Hike report for Thursday, August 13, 2020:

Our group was small this week, so we made this a dedicated trail work day. We returned to continue our progress on the Greenhouse Trail (there is still much to do!) which is now passable up to the overlook.

Two people started early and hiked up to clear the trail of a number of fallen logs that we noted last week. Two of us started a bit later and kept working on cutting back brush and widening the trail in some stretches where raspberries have overgrown. With the mountain rains, we noticed a lot of growth in one short week! We hike out in a little bit of rain and some thunder.

A few more wildflowers were blooming: hillsides ofMirabilis longiflora– Long-tube four-o-clock – had their flowers still open under the overcast sky. And, Winn Falls was falling bigly (more than last week, at any rate)!

Next week, we’re going up to the crest to enjoy the cooler air and lack of chiggers. We’ll head towards Chiricahua Peak to look around the various springs and explore – hikers can go as far as they wish. Meet at the Silver Peak trailhead at 8 AM Arizona, 9 AM New Mexico.

P.S. The Sandy Bob hike in the Mule Mountains (scheduled for this Sunday) has been postponed until they get some rain and the days cool down a bit. I will send out a notice when we reschedule.
