I think it best if I give advanced warning to my few Ohio friends....I am returning to Ohio....soon. My experience in Arizona has been a good and interesting one. I embraced the traditions of the old southwest, just like Richard Harris did in the aforementioned movie. I suffered (OK, I did not have sticks inserted through my nipples while tied to a post) in the heat, avoided killer rattlers, climbed through cliffs, got lost a few times, hacked through wildernress using a machete, walked on water, etc.... Still a few hikes/rides to come, beginning tomorrow. I have been surprised that, while visitors are down from the 1000+ uniques each week in the summer, there are still enough bored office cubicle dwellers numbering over 700 who come here each week. The organized rides have fizzled but when I am back, I will whip those central Ohio cyclists into shape and get the organized rides going, 1-2 time each month since it will be winter and it is the midwest afterall. Let's see, what else to say...oh yes...as I write on the pages of every summit register,......GO BUCKEYES!!!!!
