Walnut Canyon National Monument
Today we took a day trip from Pinetop, AZ to the Sam's Club in Flagstaff, AZ to replenish our wine & some groceries. It's about a 2 & 1/2 hour drive each way. On the way, we noticed a sign for the Walnut Canyon National Monument. Since we had time, we decided to stop on the way home. It was a great place to stretch our legs & get a little outside sightseeing. There are 2 paved hiking trails, but the most stringent one, called The Island Trail was closed, as was the Visitor's Center (due to Covid 19 of course!). We walked the Rim Trail & enjoyed a little time in the sun with some magnificent views.

Superstition Mountain Cougar Shadow, 27 Mar 2020So first here's an official description about the cougar & something I found on line.
When and where to view the Superstition Mountains cougar shadow
- Timing is critical. The cougar only appears during the third week of March and September. The last thirty minutes before official sunset is prime time for viewing.
- If you want to see this phenomenon in person, head to the vicinity of Superstition Blvd and Goldfield Road in Apache Junction for a relatively unobstructed view.
#1 rule of enjoying nature: Leave only footprints, take only pictures.
- There is a wide shoulder on the east side of Goldfield Rd (opposite the homes) where you can pull off to view the cougar and take pictures.
- Check the forecast before you go. The cougar shadow is usually only visible if the western sky (where the sun sets) is free of clouds.
- Please be respectful of people who live in the area by keeping music and voices at a low volume. And of course, leave no trace that you were there.
The picture of the Superstition Mountains Cougar below was taken from the open space access point at 4th Ave & Goldfield Road in Apache Junction, AZ on September 17, 2018.
