I went on an 11-mile hike on Monday! And it was actually not too hard. I definitely worked up a sweat and huffed and puffed up a hill, but all in all I felt great. I went with a work friend who turns out to be such a kindred spirit. We had a great time talking and sitting by the creek for a wine break. And our destination was the coolest, most hidden-away swimming hole! I love finding these secluded Arizona spots that are breathtakingly beautiful yet no one knows about! We swam despite how cold it was, and cliff jumped off the 15 foot canyon walls!
