Hiking and Flying

We're so happy that we knew about the hiking club while staying for the month of December at Palm Creek in Casa Grande.  We joined the club on a hike every Friday in December. I think that was our inspiration for finding a place to hike while we're staying at Leaf Verde near Phoenix. There are several Regional Parks in the mountains nearby and we picked Estrella Regional Park for a hike yesterday. It started out a little chilly but warmed up as we walked.

I recorded the hike with My Tracks on my Android phone. You can get the Google Earth viewable file at

About 2/3 thru the hike, my phone rang with the Skype alert sound. How cool is this to be able to share the sights and sounds of Arizona with my Mom, and friend Dee, in Florida?!
I take a Skype call on my phone from Dee and Mom in Florida

That was a beautiful day enjoying the Arizona wilderness area. Then we did a little shopping at Trader Joe's and enjoyed a steak dinner at Outback. NICE day.

The next day we spent on our computers - a day at the office. But, before dark, Jim had to go try out his Quadcopter in the desert. He had made a few minor repairs after his crash last week and needed to see if all was well. There is a nice open area of desert right across the street from this RV park.

Lookin' Good!

It's good to see your mother is still interested in what you two are up to. It's also nice to see you out enjoying what this great land has to offer.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It's about time.
