the hike Let’s return to the desert as the temperatures drop out of triple digits. This is a loop to a stone grotto, which uses social trails and washes and a little route finding. Vistas and saguaros abound. I will be navigating off the track I made when I learned the hike, so a little backtracking is to be expected.
