By July 20, 2017Uncategorized

RENEGADE RAMBLE. Day 23: 8.0 Miles
Total Mileage Thus Far: 158.7 Miles

I’m seeking $20 donations for each mile, but will accept any amount.

Granite Mountain Trailhead. Powerline Road #2. Balanced Rock Trail. Cholla Mountain Loop Trail. Branding Iron Trail. Granite Mountain Loop Trail. Powerline Road #2 to Trailhead.

Overcast skies greeted this languorous lass long after first light. Stratocumulus cloud cover had infused my dreams with enigmatic energy difficult to shake.

Three vehicles inhabited the typically desolate lot, but I wouldn’t cross another homosapien [sapien] soul on the trail. Solitary scouting revealed a great many other companions, few of whom cared to associate with one of my kind. Who can blame ’em?

Balanced Rock Trail boasts at least two boulders seemingly defying Newton {not a care in the world about -9.8 m/s-squared}. The photos I’ve included barely do them justice. I stood upon a large sister boulder near *the* Balanced Rock to take panoramas of Granite and Cholla Mountains. Enjoy.

I have rescued the Preserve from trashy balloons twice in the past week. Let’s just do without them, shall we?

If you’d like to hike a leg with me, or a if you have ideas of how might raise additional funds or awareness, message me today.
