Time to take a break from cycling and I didn't want to do a lot of heavy lifting (climbing) so I headed to Sabino Canyon to do the Seven Falls hike, a 9 mile, rolling route with a climb in the middle. A few people were out on their horses going somewhere unknown but this is the west so....
At mile 4-ish, you get a great view of the 7 falls.
Reaching the base, I continue up the left side to reach the next pool and up another level to the next pool but the way up from there is kind of sketchy. Looking back down, I can see people cavorting around in and out of the lower pool.
Another look back at the falls after I retreat back to the lowest pool. I hang around long enough to munch on an apple and head back.....
....enjoying nice views to the southwest. It's Wednesday, I ride on Thursday and then comes Friday, my final full day in, for me, paradise. I'm a mountain guy. When I drive the Pacific Coast Highway, I don't look at the ocean, I look inland at the mountains. Here, mountain ranges surround the area and beyond them, more and more mountains. Couple that with the sun, blue skies and warmth/heat, geesh.
