As part of my goal of losing weight and toning up I’m dragging my family out hiking as often as possible. We didn’t go this weekend since it’s snowing… again. It might sound like an excuse but my joints honestly don’t like the cold.
Last weekend we did manage to go hiking in the mountains. Since they’re literally in my back yard it’s a short 15 minute drive up to the trails.
If anyone tells you the desert is ugly they’ve obviously never been.
I managed a twenty minute easy hike before my poor joints and generally out of shape body protested. Over all not too bad… for now.
I fell in love with this bush. The bright vibrant color of it’s bark begs to become part of a verian.
And of course what hike is complete without a wild animal sighting? I’m just glad it wasn’t a javelina or a bear. (the pictures are much less blurry if you click on them 😉
