What do you do when a friend suggests starting a hiking club?
Jump up and down and agree to it immediately? Yes, that’s what I did! How fun to have a group to share adventures with!
We are starting off with 7 members and 5 of us were able to do the first hike today.
We selected a short local favorite hike, Fatmans Loop. If you veer off this trail you can climb to the top of Mt. Elden.
Click the link above for more info on this hike and it’s unique name.
One of our members had to turn around after 30 minutes into hike due to prior commitments. This is the text she sent us during her descent back down.
She didn’t even scream . Maybe because she knew it was just a milk snake and totally harmless. But look how long it is!!!
This hike is known for being a bit rocky and dusty with very little shade on the climb up. But thanks to recent moisture from a Spring snowstorm last week we were treated to some color to brighten the otherwise dreary landscape.
Next week we are tackling a section of the Arizona Trail ! So stay tuned.
Hopefully I won’t have to do this after every hike.
Heading back to foot doc today for a follow up.
Hopefully there is no mention of “rest” or “boot” or lecture on not ” over doing” it. Ha! As if I can be reasonable and moderate in my desire to hike and play tennis.
