Did you know there are exactly 52 Sundays in 2013? Each Sunday, I’ll try to post an image from some sort of adventure I had the previous week. This is all in the spirit of getting myself to write/blog more this year.
This image was taken on the Esperero Canyon Trail in Sabino Canyon, on New Years Day. The previous week, my sister invited me hiking and I sprung for the “America the Beautiful” Interagency Park Pass. There are many benefits to purchasing this pass; not only will it motivate me to get outdoors more to get maximum value out of visiting as many parks as possible, but it will also mean that I no longer need to fear getting a ticket every time I decide to drive up Mt. Lemmon to hike, and blow past the self-pay stations. I will be a rebel no more.
On the Esperero Canyon Trail, we found it to be a fairly easy hike, however we only hiked about half of the trail. Hunger struck and we started to run low on water. (Note to self: invest in a Camelbak) This image was snapped about a quarter of the way in, and as we started to descend into a dry riverbed, this tree caught my eye. As my sister and I snapped a few pictures in the rocky riverbed, other trail-goers stopped and admired the tree as well.
It was a good hike and the perfect way to kick off the New Year. I’m looking forward to hiking the whole thing soon.
