Last week we went on the toughest hike we have attempted in two years. And we made it! We hiked to Fremont Saddle where we could see Weaver's Needle.
We have hiked that trail several times over the years we have been coming to Arizona. It is full of rocks that make the hike treacherous. It is uphill, but that isn't really a problem. Coming down is more difficult. I fell when I took my eyes off the ground. No serious injury but a good cut on my shin with lots of blood and a few bruises and scrapes.
Here are some of the scenes along the way.
Near the top we had a great view of the Phoenix valley.
John sat and rested among the rocks when we took a break.
We hope to keep in shape hiking so we can continue to tackle a few challenging trails.
