Spook Hill and Me…

Happy Wednesday!  I finally went back out this past Sunday and did a short hike – about 1 1/2 miles – at a place that is about 3 minutes away from my home.

Now, the good thing is Spook Hill (also known as Brown Road Mountain – but it’s NOT a mountain, and I just like the old name of “Spook Hill” better; conjures up thoughts of ghost stories!  😉 ) is that a hike that gets my heart rate going, but it’s short enough that I don’t feel as if I’m going to die before I get to the top.  And that’s VERY important when I have to hike at 5am!  Why am I hiking at 5am on a Sunday morning?  Because I live in the Sonoran Desert, and our summer temps this time of the year range around 106 degrees!  Can you guess how many bottles of water I took with me up that hill?

Our temperatures this coming weekend are supposed to be 114 degrees – so I’m not sure I’ll be hiking this weekend (even at 5am).  It may just be the local gym for me!

Happy Health to you!
