Beck Hill Trail
I went for a hike yesterday. The weather has been beautiful, and I feel like actually being outside again. Yesterday, with temperatures in the 70s and a day off, it was the perfect day.
I hiked the Beck Hill loop, partly to just get out there, and partly to check out the native cactuses, to see if they are thinking about blooming any time soon. They are not, as far as I could see. However, I did harvest a few Mammillaria tetrancistra seeds, to see if I can make them grow. I was a little disappointed to not find any buds on anything, but I guess it is still a little early. Here are the plants I DID find: A Cylindropuntia, an Opuntia, an Echinocereus, and the Mammillaria tetrancistra seeds.
I love this area. There are red rocks like Moab, but there is actual variety. I like this photo, with its contrasting very black lava rocks on top of the red sandstone. This is from the trail I hiked today, too.
For you geeks out there, here are my hike stats, via Strava:
