This is the 1st of 3 hikes I did while I was in Tucson this May taking care of ongoing family estate business.  The previous trips as of late included no hiking but this time I was determined to get out as it helps de-stress from all that's involved w/this executor stuff.  I opted for Guthrie Mtn. as I couldn't recall having been there before, & I'm always looking for something new.   smile.gif

I parked @ the Upper Green Mtn. TH along the Catalina/Mt. Lemmon Hwy., one of several fee-free parking lots.   up.gif

The trail initially goes up & over a saddle through the woods, then switchbacks steeply down the other side to a trail junction where I turned right/SE.  Views open up a bit though Guthrie remains out of sight for awhile.   cool.gif


I passed the junction for Maverick Spring, & a short bit later was the turnoff for Guthrie Mtn. which to my delight was actually signed & easy to follow.   up.gif


The trail follows the spine of the ridge, has a short airy section, then resumes in light forest cover to the summit where views abound.   smile.gif

After a brief rest & snack, I headed back out.  When I hit the main trail, I came across one mtn. biker who sounded a bit annoyed when he told me "Just when I think I'm alone out here I see someone else!"  Likewise.   wink.gif  moon.gif
