Since there is a three hour time difference, we wake up super early, which is perfect for hiking! The first day we trekked on a trail in the Scottsdale area. These are our good friends who live in Scottsdale. Their youngest daughter graduated from the 8th grade while we were in town.
We took several side trips. One day we visited Payson, Arizona, and hiked to see the Natural Bridge.
Later in the week, we visited Tucson and hiked in the Saguaro National Park.
