A Section of the Continental Divide Trail and the Wild Burro Trail in the Tortolita Mountains

This post contains photos from our two hikes we did on our way to our next stop in Tonto National Forest in northeast Arizona. Since we were in no particular hurry – and since Abby in particular requires a daily hike – we pulled over to hike a section of the Continental Divide Trail after leaving Gila National Forest, and then stopped the next day north of Tucson in the Tortolita Mountain Park where we knew there were trails without as many people as in places like Saguaro National Park. The latter stop was made on a cloudy day so the photos of Wild Burro Canyon came out rather dark, but our 6-7 mile loop was entirely pleasant and a nice break from driving. Our hike on the CDT the previous day was impressive as it offered views of the basin below before getting into some sections of interesting rock formations and big trees.
