Saturday's hike down Pusch delivered a pounding to my lower joints. So, I did a short, 20 mile ride just to get "things" reoriented. Cycling seems quite therapeutic for recovery from hiking. Some of the homes around Oro Valley CC have nice Christmas displays. I'll have to come back at night to see them lighted.
I was driving somewhere and saw this unusual sight, a sidecar having two dogs in it.
Two systems passed through with only a small amount of rain but the cloud formations were......
...very nice and reminded me of one of the reasons I love this region.
Last couple of days have been too windy to ride so I drove to the Tucson Mountains to hike a loop that included Brown Mountain.
The first half is gently rolling but then you ascend and hike a ridge line. Nothing too steep just something on which I can push myself and get a good workout.
The clouds begin their exit of our skies.
I'm on the final portion of the ridge line trail and see Goldengate Mountain on the right, Bren on the left. Both enjoyable hikes. Finished with 4.25 miles and 700' elevation gain. Really epic hike coming Saturday.
