What an amazing day!
I had an amazing time today with my son. We hiked up Sabino Canyon. It was a little on the warm side but still beautiful all the same. It took us 3 1/2 hours and I can't believe how much easier it was this time. I can really tell the difference when I'm fit. Praise the Lord!
The main reason for our trip was to give Trevor some exercise carrying a full pack while hiking. He is preparing for Boyscouts. Tomorrow he will be crossing over from cubscouts to boyscouts. He is so excited. So I will be MIA until Friday. We are camping for the event. The ceremony takes place at Mt. Lemmon.
To cool off Trevor swam in the stream. He said the water was really nice. I walked in place while he swam to keep my heart rate up. A lady with her two little toddlers asked me if I was doing it for exercise. I said yes, and she said, well let me do it too. So we were both walking in place until she had to catch up to her 2 year old. I must've looked funny, but I didn't care. It was a great workout.
It is amazing to see this site in the middle of the desert. The two ducks swimming in this stream just seem so peaceful. God's creation is truly magnificent.
I had to take a picture of this. I thought that whoever did this had a very creative mind. I guess you can call him rockman.
We had such a great time hiking and I'm looking forward to tomorrow camping. I am truly blessed to be able to be out and enjoy God's wonderful creation.
See you ladies on Friday. Until then, let's keep springing.
