Happy October

I dragged D out into the desert this weekend to have him take one good look and say, “I love this!” We hiked South Mountain Saturday and made it on Camelback with Nelson Sunday. It was fantastic!

Now, I need to research some light weight, inexpensive sleeping bags and a tent. I’d like us to wade into the world of camping — of which, believe it or not — I’ve done very little of.

Happy October

If you live in the Phoenix area, what is your favorite trail? Why? Where do you like to camp?

Three cheers to cooler temps!

  1. That’s a great pic of the 3 of you! No advice from me on camping in the desert, other than watch out for scorpions!

  2. Great pic of the three of you for the Christmas card…hint, hint

  3. Great photo of the three of you. Happiness!

  4. How wonderful!

    Is there camping off the Apache Trail? It is fabulous around there.

  5. It is hard to believe you haven’t camped much! It’s a good time to buy sleeping bags and stuff, everything is on clearance.

  6. Yaaaaeey! My favorite Phoenix activity! We love South Mountain Mormon Trail to Hidden Valley loop, like a lot. You should try it!

  7. I’ll have to find out where Bubba’s favorite camp spot is in Oak Creek, but if you make it up to Sedona, there are some spots I can lead you to. Gorgeous camping with crazy cliffside spots and incredible views. It’s impossible to hate it and, bonus, it’s not ridiculous hot there.
