I've become super motivated to get back into cycling shape. How I allowed the deterioration to happen is self imposed idiocy. I rode north to Saddlebrook and wow, look at the view.
I've been itching to get back to organizing group hikes and so scheduled the first for October. Finger Rock Guard is an awesome destination and worthy of the first hike which begins from the valley.
It is amazing to me that large saguaros can be pulled out of the ground with nary a rootball and yet they can be replanted and survive.
