Had a lovely hiking date with my granddaughter yesterday. We drove 30 miles and 7000 vertical feet to the top of Mt. Lemmon and walked a little bit of the Meadow Trail. Many of the dead trees from the 2003 fire have now fallen, leaving copious material from which someone had built a couple of shelters. How could a five year old not explore them?
What a sweet afternoon. Chilly, but beautiful.
She slept all the way back down to Tucson.
