Our final couple of weeks in Tucson have been busy days. We have new glasses and sunglasses, all my appointments taken care of, new RV house batteries thanks to The Battery Guy, who replaced them on site (always my favorite way to have service done), new fluids in Belle, and two fans installed in the engine compartment thanks to Rick's RV Service, AND visiting with Carol, Ronnie and their pup Cooper.
We managed to get in 3 bike rides, 2 days of hikes, and some yummy eats in between all of our appointments.

The Loop in Tucson is 131+ miles of shared bikeways that connects parks, trails, and bus and bike paths. The best part is that we can get on it right from the KOA.
Our choice for hikes was Catalina State Park. Since Carol and Ronnie had never been to Catalina State Park, it was our choice for some easy and beautiful hikes. The first day we got a late start due to a bone density test I had done so we hiked the Birding Trail. The next day, we combined the Nature Trail and Romero Ruins. It's been warming up to the low 90s here so an early start sure helps beat the heat.
|You have to cross the wash to get to the Birding Trail...fun !|
This thick, cool, luscious, grass lined Birding Trail in one section......and I wasn't the only one who enjoyed it !
|I see you Cooper !|
The views from the ridge are very pretty...especially with wispy clouds.
Isn't this a beautiful saguaro? It was huge, healthy, and so full.
Well, until next time...
HAPPY TRAILS !
Up next, spring in Moab, UT...yippee !
