The day after Thanksgiving, Penny and I went on a hike in the Phoenix Mountain Preserve. We took a route that Cindy and I had done once before. It's close to 3 miles and took us a couple of hours. It has some pretty good ups and downs. It was a beautiful day. It had rained the day before and the air was crisp. In the photos it looks smoggy downtown, but it was more foggy/misty actually. We saw quite a few people out with the same idea. We even passed one group of 20 that were hiking with some of the Phoenix park rangers. Penny said she had never been hiking before and had a quite a bit of commentary to make about hiking. It was kind of funny. She walks a lot, but wasn't used to the uneven path and ups and downs. Here are the photos! Enjoy! We are taking a big hike the Monday after Christmas for anyone who wants to join us.
