Running Homestead Trail of Lynx Lake

Last weekend we spent another weekend in the mountains camping and trail running. This trip we spent it in the Ponderosa pine and oak forest of central Arizona.

One of my favorite trails is the Homestead Trail of Lynx Lake Recreation Area which offers sweeping vistas of the pine-covered Bradshaw Mountains. The trail has an elevation of 6,065 feet and crosses a number of intermittent streams where wild rose and columbine flowers grow beside the creek bed. Many of the rock types exposed along the trail are metamorphic varieties similar to what one finds in the lower reaches of the Grand Canyon.
