It feels like ages ago Mama Boots and I hiked our way through Tucson in early March. In typical ‘me’ fashion, I just had to squeeze in one more trek before we hit the airport.
With Saguaro National Park enveloping the east and west, it’s hard to believe there’s more to see in Tucson–but there’s trails all around, including the Sabino Canyon Recreation Area to the north!
With the right gear, determination, and knowledge, almost any hike can be done year-round. But snow can be dangerous and tough, so I like to always have some ideas for snow-free trails year-round.
The doldrums of winter in the PNW. It’s a well-known joke about those deceptively sunny-but-cold days in February/March being known as ‘faux spring,’ but the mountains can still be too snow-filled for hikes. Enter the Issaquah Alps!
As mentioned last week, I spent ten days in beautiful Winthrop, WA dogsitting for my in-laws. I decided to treat all three dogs to a stroll at Pearrygin Lake State Park. If you think a novice should be walking three dogs at once, don’t.
