Hiking Douglas Springs Trail

This morning my husband and I decided to hike part of the Douglas Springs Trail on the east end of Tucson, Arizona. It's February and the weather is beautiful, about 53 F. The trail runs along the northern boundary of the Saguaro National Park East.
            The trail starts out flat then begins a gradual climb into the Rincon Mountains. 
                      There is quite a variety of cacti and other plant life along the way.

Surprisingly, there were not many birds, which is a big interest of mine. However, the song of the Cactus Wren could be heard up and down the trail. He is a great little bird to see!
A quick look at a tiny bit of wildlife!
