This photo was taken at approximately 2:15pm today - after a 6-MILE hike with the girls. Note my flushed cheeks from the warm weather (the high was 86 degrees today).
We hiked up Seven Falls in Bear Canyon in the Santa Catalina Mountains. And this is "real" hiking - with stream crossings, rock-hopping, and trekking uphill. At the end of the trail, there are waterfalls (hence the name) and pools for swimming (but fair warning - the water is c-c-cold).
The hike was totally fun - and it was good to know that we COULD do it. Up-and-around, over-and-through...carrying the girls deep into the heart of nature.
When we pulled out of the parking lot, our 3-year-old suddenly said, "Can we come here EVERY Saturday?" Needless to say, I think the adventure was a huge hit with our whole family.
How did you spend your Saturday? If you live in or near Tucson, have you ever hiked 7 falls?
