Wildcat Trail - Monument ValleyMay 9, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 79 °F
4 mile hike round West Mitten Butte, may not sound far, but it was down and back up a very steep red sandy trail with temperatures in the 90Fs. It was roasting, although we had some cloud cover round the back of the Butte where we had our picnic.
Fantastic hike though, lots of plants, some in bloom with lovely scents (salt cedar). Also saw interestingly shaped trees, lizards 🦎 and a few horses, one with a foal. Then there’s the scenery, sandstone towers and cliffs rising from the desert all around us. Wonderful hike definitely worth the pain from the heat ☀️.Read more
