A Climb to Romero Pools

No more errands to run! We set aside Saturday for one of our favorite hikes at Catalina State Park, the 5.5 mile roundtrip hike to Romero Pools.

When you see this sign, you are on your way. 6 miles to the top of the pass. We have never gone that far (and I don't plan to).

See the trail? This is why we bought stout hiking boots shortly after we began visiting Arizona during our winter travels. Rock, rock, and more rock. BUT, we have seen people much younger than ourselves hiking this trail in sandals.

This is Odel halfway through the hike.

This is Laurie halfway through the hike.

We came home to a long, hot, steamy, wonderful shower in the spa-quality restrooms here at Catalina State Park, and a batch of Posole in the crockpot. A little wine, a flaming sunset... can't be beat.
