Hiking and the Tucson Shootout
Wednesday morning, I headed to Sabino Canyon to do the Seven Falls trail. The trail crosses a stream multiple times before emerging at the head of a canyon at what is called "Seven Falls" because water cascades from one level to another and so on. It's a beautiful site. The trail is also about the only relatively flat one in the area and it was good to get out for
Thursday, I rode to Oracle. a 48 mile ride out of Oro Valley, gaining 2100' in 24 miles before stopping at the Circle K for a drink, non alcoholic of course.
Then it's a downhill return. With the winter rains, there is lots of grass and flowers everywhere, along with the cacti.
Wow, a RV show. Dozens and dozens of RVs with some more than $200,000. I've run in to a lot of people who park their RV around the Tucson area for the winter and then travel the US the remainder of the year. It's an interesting life but not one in which I have much interest. Well, tomorrow is a rest day and then the Saturday Tuccson Shootout ride. I finally realized why it is called "Shootout" but more on that later.
