Summer on the Rabbit Trail; Mesa, Arizona, June 14, 2016  GPS Map 

Someone has trimmed more branches on the rabbit trail, making it easier to get through. By starting at first light I beat the heat and didn’t have the sun shining on me until the return trip. Other folks were out walking.

I know, the calendar says it’s still spring. But the weather says summer.
