April 28 Monday 8:00 am Take Your Walk to the Desert (moderate) Join park docent Coni for a moderate 3 to 5 mile hike (ability of hikers and weather will determine the length of hike). We might hike through riparian areas with seasonal water in Cave Creek or hike across the mesa tops in the upland Sonoran Desert vegetation. We may see wildlife, petroglyphs, and colorful wildflowers. You may learn about cochineal (wow, whats that?), agave, mesquite, prickly pear, and maybe even taste some wolfberries...and, of course, every where you look - wonderful views!
