Then, after sending Danny off to Atlanta for time with his Daddy, we contemplated, briefly contemplated, yard work. Somehow it was pushed back, shoved, no, quite frankly ignored in lieu of a hike with our neighbors.
Up the large, large, rough and stony hill, a.k.a.
"mountain"(to the every day desert dweller,) switchback after switchback, and hill after rocky hilly,.....huff puff, mountain!.... we went, and then descended. Length of course: 4 miles. Time to complete: 3 hrs. One tumble and several pitstops later, we arrived back at the parking lot to our CAR!!!! We almost kissed it!
We then proceeded IMMEDIATELY to Sonic for slushies and cherry limeades. Finished those just in time to walk in the door for a young man's haircut. But wait, there's more!
Then, we spontaneously invited a few friends out to Deer Valley Airport Restaurant in honor of Mary Lee's birthday. There were 11 of us, and a fun time was had by absolutely everyone. On the way home Daniel said, "I love Mary Lee."....and he meant it. I told him, "We all do!"
Did I mention I was able to capture a shot of my two favorite hikers on one of their pitstops today?
