Weekend in Phoenix

Susie and I - margaritas at happy hour
The last weekend in August I flew to Phoenix, Arizona to spend the weekend with Susan.  We met last summer working in Yellowstone National Park and became good friends.

Such a fun weekend!  We talked and laughed and caught up on each others lives.  The first afternoon we watched her sweet little grandson, Jackson Dupps.  Jack was diagnosed with cancer in January, turned two in February, and is undergoing chemo and all that entails.  Such a tough fighter - affectionately known as Action Jackson.

Ate and had a beer at this brewery.
Research for Sarah - honest.
Susie and I packed a lot into a short weekend.  We managed two hikes - both first thing in the morning to beat the heat.  
Really fun.  Susie didn't even complain about how slow I am.  She leaves most people in the dust!!  Afterwards, we went and swam laps to cool off.  We also did some eating and drinking and a little shopping.  And laughed.   And talked.

We had quite an adventure getting back to the airport - but we made it on time.  Major traffic jam.
Arizona!!  I made it to the top.

Sunday morning's hike.

The cactus - and me.
