Day Tripping-Arizona Style

     It looks like we will be spending a lot more time in the Phoenix area.  We just purchased a rental in the Pebble Creek Community located in Goodyear, AZ.  We have been enjoying exploring the area and were especially lucky to have East Valley Ambassador, Brian England to recommend and guide us on our hike at Saguaro Lake.   The area was beautiful and we even had the pleasure of spotting three Bighorn Sheep.  Two of them were even kind enough to pose for a picture, though they were mostly proud of their backside!

      The out and back hike, starting at the Butcher Jones area, was just over 5 miles without too much elevation change.  It was hot so water is a must at this time of year.  There were a lot of very scenic spots along the trail.

     It was a perfect choice for our first time hike in the Phoenix area proving Brian is an outstanding ambassodor for the area.  He is also a great choice for Realtor, if you are looking for a home in the East Valley area.  He introduced us to the 55+ community, Leisure World after our hike.  It looked like a great retirement area.

 Where shall we explore next time, Brian?

This is a fun one, if you ever decide to visit us in Elk Grove.

Day Tripping, Elk Grove Style
