Canada del Oro – 2013 May

The CDO! Neither Lance nor I had ever been down the Canada del Oro trail and this was a great trip – Montezuma Quail, Painted Redstarts, Western Tanager, Horned Lizards, Black Rattlers, Flowers, Bear Scat and WATER! Both Lance and I were surprised to find miles of flowing water, quite a treat! Thanks to Alison and Erin for shuttling us and picking us up!

Great photos and post about the hike from Lance

A post from Sirena about her CDO hike – both Lance and I read this several times to get an idea about the area and what to expect – great!

HikeArizona description of the hike – as always on HikeArizona be sure to check out the Triplogs which can give you some great ideas on recent conditions and what to expect.
