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!

    Hot and a bit steamy as expected, no complaints. Met a large Tarantula on the way back. Lovely golden new moonset.

    I don't think I can walk 2 miles! Maybe I am IN the wrong Group!

    I guess I was thinking of "Slower Walking", when I joined. When I use my Walker I can Walk much faster than I can with or without the Cane.

    Sunset in Sabino Canyon probably is prettier than any other time.
    I could take pictures, but I am NOT a Professional of that either at least NOT in the form others do.

    Hope you have a magnificent time.

      I didn't see this until tonight. IF I find someone that wants to stroll with me, I will do it in the future. The reason why I joined these groups is so I wouldn't do EVERYTHING in my life alone anymore.
