Here are some pictures from the hike we did yesterday along one of the urban trails that we are fortunate enough to have here in Phoenix.
We have many desert trails within a few miles of where we live, and this hike that we did up Piestewa Peak is one of them. We only hiked about 1/2 a mile up, but we all had a great time, the girls did well, and we got lots of comments from people impressed by how much they seemed to be enjoying it.
This is a classic Sonoran Desert view. I kept thinking about all the pictures I will be able to take on hikes like this with my new camera when it arrives.
And this is a classic "brown cloud" view of the Phoenix skyline. Gorgeous don't you think ?!
As I was putting Kendra to bed last night after an action packed, yet comfortingly frugal weekend she said to me, "oh Mommy, I just love our family weekends don't you?"
