Camelback

Instead of complaining about the weather yesterday, we decided to just get on out there and quit sulking. I tried pretending it wasn't hot, but it was. Very. Rand thinks he's all acclimated because he's been working-out outside during his lunch break. Maybe he is. He definitely tolerates the heat better than me. I was in seventh-heaven in the cool Pacific Northwest for most of the last month.
So anyway, we went to Camelback Mountain to hike around. Rand sported the backpack with the big baby, and I sported the backpack with 4 bottles of water. We didn't go far but it was fun. Anxious for it to cool down so we can fully enjoy the sights around here!



You can see downtown Phoenix through that low spot in the rocks. It was a lot more clear in real life.

We were heading for that shady spot!

Desert-Shmezert. Look how green that is! :)

Wow--beautiful scenery. But, the pictures just make it LOOK hot. I don't tolerate heat well either. So happy that fall is here! Kids start school in 2 hours!!!!!!!

If it were a perfect world I would be planning a trip down there in February or March. I love it there and want to come back so much. The Great Marshmellow

I certainly hope that there was some fishing to be found after that long hot walk.
