Day Fifty-Eight: It's Great to See Friends!
So after a nice breakfast (that didn't consist of dry cereal!) it was off to Scottsdale to see some friends! It was about 2 1/2 hours down. We made a couple of stops along the way, but finally got there! It is too hot down here! I don't know how they live here. I guess the AC and misters and pools help, but still! When you start sweating as soon as you walk outside, gross! After a hardy lunch and some time to cool down, we went for a hike. We went to Phoenix to Camelback Mountain. Apparently it is something to do when you come down here. I wonder why... It was probably the toughest three mile climb. It was harder than yesterday's hike. It was more like rock climbing, which they didn't warn us about... After yesterday's hike, and then this... But, when we finally got up to the top, it was totally worth it! The view from the top was amazing! We were able to see all of Scottsdale and Phoenix. The way down wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be. We were able to see the sunset, which was beautiful! It got dark pretty quick, but we made it down just in time. After the hard workout, we went out to dinner, and came back to the apartment. Since everyone is pretty tired, we are heading off to bed, to recoup from the last few days!
