It’s 110 degrees in Southern Arizona. What do outdoorsy people do in the blistering heat of the month? Cry? Yeah, ok, we do until monsoon season comes around… But afterwards we head to the mountains for a weekend of adventure!
Our first trail began in Lockett Meadow of Flagstaff. It takes a bit of questionable off-roading but we managed it in my sedan. We let the Jeep Wrangler have the weekend off since online research indicated a sedan could traverse the unpaved roads. My sedan managed although we only saw one other sedan driving the bumpy path up the mountain… If it’s your only option, go for it! But it would definitely be more fun in an 4×4!
The Lockett Meadow to Inner Basin Trail #29 is a popular hike. Aspen trees are immediately at the trail head but the beauty of it all is much farther in –it’s also less crowded when you go the extra few miles.
We could not get over how plentiful the aspen trees here are! And in Arizona no less!
Rock on husband, rock on. (Sometimes he likes to use rocks as weights when we go hiking. Othertimes I catch him doing pushups when I’m taking too long with my camera)
