November kicked off nicely at 6:30am with a 3 hour hike into South Mountain Park. The world’s largest municipal park, SouMou features over 16,000 acres of Sonoran Desert wilderness. I joined a couple of my couchsurfing.org friends, Hytham and Brenda, and it was a lovely morning.
We came in from the east at Pima Canyon and wound our way on the National Trail until we came to the Mormon Loop. We looped around back on that. During the hike we came incredibly close to a pack of coyotes; which was something I hadn’t experienced before.
It was a great start to my “holiday diet” also. More outdoor fitness, healthy diet (except on those special days 🙂 ), and a decent night sleep.
That was Sunday.
As for today, I took all that Halloween candy we had leftover to work. I had to get it out of my sight.
