Now that I'm recovered from Part Deux, here are some photos from the final hike. The Dragoon Mountains, behind Rick and Lindsay's house. It was very hot but it wasn't a hugely difficult hike. Lots of rocks and boulders to climb/crawl over, but hey -- after those trees on Day Deux -- boulders, schmoulders.
And yes, that's me with the red face and funny hat!
Next up is the Eastern Sierras with the Everest group in early September. Three days, camping involved. Woo hoo! THEN ..... one month later ..... it's heeeeeeeeeeeeeeere!
