What a beautiful day for a hiking on Cave Creek AZ trails - warm weather, a few friendly clouds, quiet and serene Nature. This was an accidental photo of a human standing by an ancient saguaro. My guess would be, it is probably 200-year old one.
We started by Maricopa Trail, walked along a wash. There were a few more photo opportunities - of the giant saguaros, and the newly springing jumping cactus.
I could not miss to photograph somebody's effort to tidy up the ragged area. They must have left the rake for somebody else to finish the work.
After a good walk, we drove to the Horny Toad Cafe.

We chose our next trail starting point - right here, 6738 E Cave Creek Road, Cave Creek AZ 85331. The trail looked pleasant, and wide open as a river.
