Sofa spuds is the only way to describe our activity in Tucson the past few weeks. To say it has been hot would be an understatement. We have done nothing blog worthy.
Appointments and occasional errands sum it up !
Getting great reports sure made the month worthwhile and if all goes well in February '17, we might not have to return here in August next year.
Our days started early. The five of us got up about 5:30 and were at the doggie park by 5:45 so Jack could have a good 45 minutes to play ball. Of course getting up that early guaranteed we would exercise our prerogative to take a nap !
Things began to pick up last Thursday after Joe got his stitches taken out. Just as if someone waved a magic wand, we felt free, hopeful and excited...so ready to move on.
The pantry is stocked, the cleaning done, the puppies fence is stowed and even the grill is packed. Tomorrow we head north.
Our first stop will be Bryce Canyon NP where we need to get our "groove" back, dust off the hiking boots, load the backpack and hit the trails. I have checked the weather and with highs in the low 80s and lows in the mid 40s, it sounds perfect ! We visited Bryce Canyon in May 2013 and are looking forward to familiar and new trails to explore.
The pictures in this post are from a hike we did the day before we left Gunnison. Brush Creek Trail is a very easy 4.5 mile hike with a elevation gain of only 315 feet. It was easy to become absorbed by the expansive views of East River Valley with it's twisting waterways...
...and stunning background.
It's definitely time for a happy dance around our house !
So, until next time...
HAPPY TRAILS !
P.S. I took one picture this month... my sweet sofa spuds !
