Granite Mountain Reflections

Granite Mountain Reflections

We took advantage of no parking fee on Wednesday to visit the Peavine Trailhead near the Prescott Lakes Parkway. We found moths, possibly lunate zale moths, resting on the outside wall of the toilets. As we approached the trail, an elaborate City of Prescott mowing vehicle was cutting down swaths of weeds. We observed a city firetruck positioning itself near the fire practice area. Yes, there is lots of activity on this trail, especially on Wednesdays, In addition to other hikers, we encountered a Scottsdale cross country team (boys and girls), several bicyclists, and two women with horses. We found a diamondback rattler slithering alongside the trail, too. We noted individual plants that had found enough soil to root on the granite cliffs. We enjoyed a view of the reflection from the granite dells on backwater from Watson Lake with a distant view of Granite Mountain. All in all, an interesting walk on the former railroad bed.
