Innovation Parkway Uphill - Early Morning

This is approximately a 3.5-mile hike.  We will start at Chase Bank and walk over to the walking/bike trail and follow it until we hit Innovation Parkway and Tangerine.  At that point we will start the gradual ascent up Innovation Parkway.  This grade is approximately a 10-30% varying grade by my eyeball.  At Roche Ventana, we will cut through the property to see their sculpture garden, do an internal loop on-property back along the fire road and then exit onto Innovation Parkway where we continue up hill.  At Rancho Vistoso we will cross the street and start our descent trip back to cars at Chase Bank.

This is approximately a 1.5-hour trip in the early morning and for some, even shorter.  For those who want to walk it faster they can go on ahead.  If our return time is less fifteen minutes of less apart from each other, I suggest we hit Starbuck's at First and Oracle for a morning coffee/pastry and a social cool down.

    Last night I inherited a young basset hound from a neighbor who found the dog and doesn't have a yard so as usual I'm to the rescue till we find the owner. Did you know they bay?! Needless to say I was up very late and I am going to wait till next weekend to try again. Don't give up on me! I do love to walk!

    I am looking forward to the walk! Hope It happens and hope I make it. I'm not overweight but I am definately not in as good a shape @ 57 as I'd like to be.
