3.2 Hike @ Papago Park and "Cold Ones" at the Gazebo finish line!

Friday forecast ... about 100 degrees ... just right for a desert evening outdoors ey? Join us for a "Meetup Hike" trekking on the Papago Double Butte Loop Trail. Add to your busy day 2.8 to 3.2 miles of walking by the time we finish. Our path of level dirt trails, "Whoop-T-Do's", rock climb on Little Butte and Colosseum stair climb lap or two ... will get your Heart rate up. Burn baby burn. I like it! Flashlights or headlamps good pack. Lite sticks another glow option, as the day gets dark near 7PM .. and with walking on level dirt trails towards our finish, nearer 7:30 PM, back @ the Gazebo.     (See last week's hike photos)

Post Hike Social Hour ... "Cold Ones" at the Gazebo finish line! Pre-Hike a beverage preference into the ice coolers, ready for a "finish line chiller". Should taste great, ey? Park Recycle bin there, trash can and water fountain.

I'll bring a Citronella Candle to help fend off the peskies. Sharin and Annette volunteered coolers and ice! Thank you for that. We're good now.

... meet at the Gazebo ready to hike. Hope you can be there too!
