Kelly N and I (e) met up with her NWLB biking buddy Angela and friend Christine, to do the Phoenix Summit Challenge. You hike 7 summits in one day. However, I must confess we skipped South Mtn because it's boring and we were worried about finishing in time to pick up our race packets for the Women's half marathon on Sunday. Besides, I kinda think running a half marathon in the same weekend negates the fact that we skipped a summit. Here's the proof that we did at least 6!
Summit #1: Papago Park at 6:00 a.m. (L to R) Kelly, e, Angela & Christine
Summit #2: Camelback!
Summit #3: Squaw Peak (a.k.a. Piestewa Peak)
Summit #5: Lookout Mountain
Summit #6: Shaw Butte
Summit #7: North Mountain
And last but not least --our imitation of dead cockroaches! Don't be surprised if this doesn't end up on an event promo sometime. The park staff thought it was funny and held up the signage behind us for another photo to use.
