I did Tom's Thumb in the Mc Dowell's yesterday as it was a fantastic cool morning. I hiked to Humphrey's saddle last summer and hope to get at least that far this summer. I have hiked several places in the Valley, Prescott, Flagstaff, and Mt. Baldy in the White Mtns. I have not had the pleasure of hiking in the Tucson area.
Abineau-Bear Jaw in Flag.
I think I mentioned it in the first paragraph.
I am working on increasing aerobic strength so am looking for some hikes with[masked] elevation change.
Yes for Meet and Greet. Maybe for LEAD. I need to get to know the group and vice versa prior to leading a hike. I have led a few hikes with the Glendale Hiking Club and AOTC.
I started hiking when I moved to the Valley from Iowa about 8 years ago. I am training for a couple of week long hiking trips, so am interested in continuing to build my mileage and altitude strength. I prefer to hike with others, versus alone.
