I don’t normally write about people, but, this is different.  Two of Phoenix’s most impressive hikers are out somewhere on the trails constantly.  And they’re not exactly what you would expect. Barbara and Sue have been making their hiking rounds casually for the better part of a year now. They […]

Arizona’s 5 C’s Can you name Arizona’s five C’s? Or, are you wondering what the heck is it to which I’m referring? The few Arizona natives that exist recall learning them in school but, I swear, always forget the easiest (and what should be the most memorable) one of them […]

Follow my blog with Bloglovin I finally conquered the Humphrey’s Peak hike in Flagstaff.  And I feel super accomplished for it. I was a little nervous going into it because even though I’m a fairly experienced hiker, I wasn’t sure I was going to have the mental grit to finish and […]

The Devil’s Bridge hike has long escaped me considering I have lived in Arizona my entire life.  I’m not sure why.  Maybe it was that I “didn’t want to do the hike everyone else wanted to do.”  Maybe it was that I just never really set out to hike it […]
