Officially, monsoon season ended with the entry of October but it continues to rain, which is a good thing. I intended to get out for a good ride but was thwarted by a long line of showers so ended up with only 30 miles. Then....
....Amy and I drove way up Mount Lemmon to check out some camp sites. We became interested in overnight camping and bought the requisite gear. We're both really looking forward to it. The daytime high up there will be around 60, the overnight low in the 40's so we're taking a lot of wood! On the drive down, we viewed an incredible sunset.
We paused at Windy Point Vista to take the above image. Note the group of people a little farther out and with a slightly better vantage point. Incredible view!
I've kept this blog going for well over 10 years. In that time, it's 97.25% about the hikes and rides. I think that's why anyone wants to visit and you number in the millions...ok, a slight exaggeration, lol. I think I have made certain statements in the last 6 weeks that would cause one to wonder if my personal life was ok so in the interest of full disclosure, Amy and I separated for reasons that only I and any other idiot would understand. I was so, so freaking stupid which is not easy for me to admit cause I'm generally kind of somewhat intelligent. The six weeks was a well deserved kick in the side of the head which really shook me to my core. Anyway, we are again, a very happy couple.
And the drive continued with a neat look at Thimble Peak and its surroundings.
Next morning, we did a 30 mile ride which included a visit to the 49er neighborhood. The people who live here create the most amazing and comprehensive displays I've ever seen. They've just begun.
