Friday Night Sabino Stroll

Come join us for our weekly hike and socializing afterward at Risky Business! This is a great hike for new members. We normally walk up the tram road and enjoy the evening views of the canyon. Most folks turn around after 2 miles, but some hardy folks go the entire 7.4 miles to the end of the tram road and back. Everyone walks at a different pace, and so normally we break up into smaller groups as we are walking.  When we get to the 2 mile rock we usually regroup before returning to the visitor center. The group that leaves at 7pm walks a little faster than 2 miles per hour. The group that leaves at 6 walks even faster, nearly 4 miles per hour. Please consider these speeds and your abilities when deciding to join us. If you cannot keep up, be prepared to hike by yourself.

We are hiking in the dark, so please make sure you have a good flashlight. The rattlesnakes are out.   

We'll meet at the ramada (covered patio) in front of the Sabino Canyon Visitor's Center at 7 PM, do a quick round of introductions and start hiking shortly thereafter.

Those wishing to walk the entire road should start with the 6:00 PM group if you intend to join the later starters at Risky Business (Kolb/Sunrise).   Please indicate on your RSVP if you will be joining the 6:00PM group.

Stroll at your own risk. Be prepared for possible rain.

If no host is present at the appointed time (+5 Mins), begin the stroll anyway.

See you there!

      If it's new to Phil, I'm impressed. As usual, I lost track of you before you found that snake. I would have loved to see it.

      The range maps I can find for carphophis don't seem to reach this far west. The scales between the eyes match humilis. This was especially cool for me since this is the fourth family of snakes I've seen in Sabino canyon - viperids (rattlers), elapids (coral snakes), colubrids (most everything else), and now leptotyplophidae.

      I bet it would still happen with a snakenado! Especially if Phil has a say in it! :-)

      Herpicane! I saw TWO Tigers (within 100 feet of one another!) and a 'baby' Gila Monster tonight! Throw in a nice big tarantula, centipede, Pepsis Formosa, unidentified all-black furry critter (melanistic Coatimundi?), Kangaroo Rat, and an unidentified mouse-creature and it was a wild night. :)
