No hikes in this area yet.
Hi, I am new to Arizona. I moved here from AZ. I was in a hiking group in Redding, CA a couple of years ago. I loved it and found it a great way to make new friends and see the great outdoors.
I loved it...even though I was the one who ended up with a sprained ankle now the size of a baseball. I can't tell you how many people offered assistance...gatorade, gum, lifesavers, an ace bandage appeared out of nowhere, aspirin...so many offers of help. Someone took my shoe off to look at it to be sure it was broken...I was feeling too sick to look...someone wrapped it...all were concerned. Kindness abounded. The leader rene and Mashall and Sid waited with me...Rene had to go on. But the conversation that ensued was lively and entertaining and made the wait go by quickly. The Ranger who gave me a ride, taught me about the flora and we saw deer and rabbits and had a great conversation. All in all, I would say it was a great hike and I enjoyed everyone and the scenery and everything. Even the group of late people who got me to the main group were wonderful and fun and I was so glad to meet up with them. Thanks to all of you. Hugs Cheri
