    Is it too early in the season right now for these Arizona canyons? I'm going next weekend. Also, camping near the area?

    Thanks in advance.

    After an intense negotiation with the landowner I was granted permission to view this Petroglyph site.

    Jan, Sue, and Mary haven't seen each other since leaving school. They rediscover each other via Friends Reunited and arrange to meet for lunch.

    Edelweiss Rope Brush (cleaner)

    I was at REI a couple weekends ago and saw that Edelweiss has a "rope cleaner".

    I was intrigued and decided to buy one to test

  • Mt Timpanogos



    On August 4th, 2015, Stephanie and I hiked to the top of Mt Timpanogos. We were lucky enough to run into Ben Woolsey in the parking lot at the beginning of our adventure, so we hiked to the top with him. This was his 705th trip to the top of Timpanogos. He is 73 years young. During the warmer months he hikes the summit about 3 times a week.

    Fortunately for us, Ben had a sprained ankle, so we were able to keep up. We followed him to the summit in 3h56m, which seemed like light-speed for us. He told us that he had gained the summit in 2h42m earlier in the year. Whoa!

    Ben has gained a certain amount of fame on that mountain. He handles his notoriety with grace and is a real gentleman. He is great about shaking hands and taking photos with all on the summit. He also maintains the register in a custom bound notebook.

    We don't normally try to summit mountains; fighting gravity isn't really our thing. This was only my 2nd peak, and Stephanie's first. A fun and challenging hike for both of us.

    Perfect weather. Magnificent scenery. It was a great adventure with fantastic company.

    -Bob
