A night hike. I thought it ought to be interesting, gather at 6:30pm well after the sun had gone down. When I arrived, there were dozens of cars parked along the road and I soon discovered this trail, which goes up to an observatory, is a popular night hike for the U of A crowd. Actually, rather than a trail it is a paved road and pretty steep too, 3 miles round trip.
The views of the city lights and a full moon were fantastic all the way to the top. However, what made this especially interesting were the six people who made up our group. It didn't take long for me to befriend one guy who used to be a door man at a popular bar. He had lots of good stories to tell from his five years, including being the point person for recruiting women for the Friday wet
T-shirt contests! What a great guy. One of our group works with Kendal Jackson winery!!!!!! Gosh, there is no one nearly so interesting riding around the central Ohio pelotons. Anyway, a fun time and followed on a quick 25 mile bike ride up to Catalina earlier in the day so a good day. Friday was a work day but then Saturday, the famous Tucson Shootout ride.
