It's been two years since we hiked Fisher Towers. Why I don't know because it is one of the most scenic and beautiful hikes here...at least I think so.
It's a moderate hike with lots of ups and downs to get the heart pumping and leg muscles warmed up right from the get go, but the surroundings are so pretty, I hardly noticed how hard I was breathing!
It's a well maintained in and out trail with a total of 4.6 miles.
I am not sure what this bush of yellow four petal blooms is, but it had a nice cinnamon smell.
We took our time enjoying all the little things along the way.
Does this rock remind you of a boxer covering his face?
He was a lot heavier than the flowers. Every time he landed on a flower the stem would bounce way up and down taking him for a ride.
There was no doubt which arrow we were following!
Ancient Art is a complicated formation with several major summits.
The corkscrew summit is great for a moderately experienced trad climber according to mountainproject.com.
We were in luck. There were three climbers and all three made it to the top of the corkscrew.
After meandering around the largest tower known as The Titan, the trail ascends and ends up on a ridge with a panoramic view.
It's a full 360* view that includes Fisher Towers,
and Castle Valley.
It was an absolutely beautiful, happy day...
