Yeah, sure the clouds create dramatic images against the mountains but geesh, a 3rd ride is cancelled on this trip, 3 more than have ever been cancelled while I am out here. I am grateful though that the rain is not all day, just spotty. I take my wife and oldest daughter to Sabino Canyon to ride....
....the 4 mile tram ride up the canyon. At the end, I lead my gals on a half mile trail to the river and then lead them cross country back to the road. They were troopers through this even though they picked up some cactus spines.
Got out for a short ride on Friday and then drove the family to the Phoenix airport on Saturday morning. While up there I hiked the iconic Camelback Mountain (more on that later) and then on Sunday, a super duper epic hike coming. I hesitate to post superlatives like that because too often I allow weather, approaching darkness, rattler probability, etc... to deter me but I am committed and not to the funny farm.
