A Crissall Thrasher sung my hound and I onto the Dynamite Trail near San Tan Mountain. The trail is well marked and easy to follow without a lot of challenges or variation in the views. A sprawling vista all the way to Usery Park and Red Mountain presented behind us before we wound back between two hills that led us to an unimpeded view of the rolling hills of San Tan Mountain. Along the way cute little Verdin and a couple Cactus Wrens chirped. Some nifty rock formations peppered the route, too. Sparkling granite, shale and at least one huge quartz deposit about a mile and a half in that looks at first like a crumbling structure were eye-catching, too..
