Fisher Point

It's no secret, I love hiking.  And I especially love hiking to Fisher Point.  Mostly it's because you really only have to drive a few miles to get to the starting point.  (And with Fisher Point, there are a great many starting points, which is so cool!).  Today we went via the Sandy's Canyon Trail.  I think most of Flagstaff thought that the trails were still covered in snow...at noon when we started, we saw hardly a soul.  It was really nice!
That's my silly husband at the top of Fisher Point.  He likes to kid around like that...freaks me out!  The route we took today was about 7 miles round trip.  The way Audra & I like to go is 10 miles.  And my friend Kim & I go a route that is about 5 miles.  Like I said, it's cool to be able to go so many routes.
That's my dog Maggie on the left, and my mom's dog, Teaka on the right.  Maggie loves to hike!  Teaka liked the idea of it, but was exhausted when we were halfway through.

One of the things I love about hiking is being outside.  I love the outdoors.  And for some reason, over the past few months my love & appreciation of the outdoors has intensified.  It's like I need to be outside to be able to breathe.  The Peaks were so beautiful the other morning that I burst into tears.  What's up with that?  Maybe I'm pre-menopausal, I don't know, but damn, the sight took my breath away!  Wish I would have had a camera with me!

Anyway, we're hoping to tackle a hike once every weekend.  This weekend we happened to hike Fat Man's Loop on Saturday (it sounds like it's not hard...but it is!) and then the hike today. The reason we're slacking off & not doing two hikes is that Don just had his shift put back to normal & for the first time since August he'll be working days again....woohoo!
