Arizona: Catalina State Park
|Riding in the Desert|
|The 50 Year Trail is Rocky|
I ran a 50K trail race on Nov.22 so I took a short break from running, but I did ride my bike and hike only a few days after racing. We hiked the Romero Trail where we saw the ruins of an Indian village. Also, we biked on the 50 Year Trail where I fell a couple of times going downhill. At least I never landed in the cactus and I'd still be able to run in a few days like I had planned.

Traveling in our new RV was fun, but not without its little problems like a few cold showers and waiting for 5 hours to replace a broken tire valve. Those little things didn't make much of a difference in our fun adventure, though. Just look at those mountain views from our campsite where we roasted marshmallows after our bike ride!
Do you like the desert? I liked visiting the desert more than I thought I would - so much to see and weather that was nice enough for shorts in December.
What's your favorite camp food? New for me: I made a banana boat - a foil-wrapped banana topped with small marshmallows and chocolate chips and melted.
