Piestewa Peak Summit Trail

Workout: 1hr and 45 minutes Hike

This morning we went on a hike. We had two trails in mind. Two trails that we love. Short and sweet Trails. One was Camelback Mountain and the other was Piestewa Peak. Before leaving I had a green monster and OATS in a PB JAR!!! I loved it!!!! No wonder Maria from loves to eat this. I was so happy when the PB jar was almost done. I can't wait to have this again.

When we got to Camelback it was closed off because there was a rescue in progress. I hope everything turned out okay for the people on that trail. We didn't stay to find out what had happened. We ended up at our second choice. It was a tough hike for us today. I don't know if it was because we were both a little cold at first or if it's because we haven't been on such a steep hike in so long but it was challenging. We made it to the top though. On the way back down I slipped and fell on my tushy. It was pretty embarrassing to be honest but I was okay. LOL. My butt actually doesn't hurt too much. I'm a tough cookie. When we got to the top they also had a Saguaro Cactus decorated and a few other bushes. It was pretty cool.

After hiking we went to TGI Friday's for lunch to watch football. When we got home we watched the Cardinals play and I took a little nap. Time for dinner and finish some things around the house.

Hope you are all ready to go back to work!! I know I'm not!!!

Tomorrow morning I have yoga planned before work, which means I have to wake up by 4am to be in the shower by 4:30am. Eeeeek. I'm glad I got that nap in.
