Peralta Trail

Sunday workout: 3 hour hike (789 calories burned)

Hi blog buddies! As you can see today we went hiking. It was a little cloudy and we were nervous that it might rain while we were out but it didn't. When we first started out it was kind of cold. I wore a sweater and my gloves and was hoping that it would get a little warmer soon. We had planned the hike for many reasons but the main reason was to take our holiday picture. We are sending out holiday cards this year and we wanted Weaver's Needle to be in the background. =)

Here is some information from Peralta Trail which is in Superstition Mountains. It's one of our favorite hikes and we hope to do other trails there soon. The information came from Hike Arizona which is a very helpful site and we use it very often.

Difficulty: 3

Distance Round Trip 4.9 miles
Trailhead Elevation 2400 feet
Elevation Gain 1380 feet
Avg Time Round Trip 3.5 hours

Weaver's Needle

"Weaver's Needle (elevation = 4553 feet; 1388 meters) is the main landmark in Arizona's Superstition Mountains. According to one of the more well-known legends about the range, the Lost Dutchman's Gold lies within its shadow." Information from Gemland

After hiking we were pretty hungry so we went to TGI Fridays. I got a chicken sandwich with a side salad. The salad was not that great so I didn't eat it but the sandwich was pretty good. We enjoyed some football while eating our lunch. We just ordered our holiday cards and are about to eat dinner. Tonights plans also include putting up our Christmas tree and our Christmas Village. Every year we add something to our village and we buy eachother a Christmas ornament. I will post pictures of our different ornaments tomorrow.

Have a great night! I go back to work tomorrow..ugh. I'm feeling a bit lazy.
