One hike down...

... and a whole bunch to go!

Here is the group, out on our first official training hike in the Phoenix Mountain Preserve. (I'm in the second row, on the left, sporting a pink fleece and a thumbs-up.) It was a fairly easy, hour-long hike through the preserve, meant to acclimate inexperienced hikers to the finer points of desert trails.

I dragged my husband along with me on this hike to brave the cold, hike, and learn about proper footwear, nutrition and hydration. And I won some cool hiking socks in a raffle! All in all, a successful start.
