Dusty Trails

Tuesday, March 25

Time for some adventure. We boarded a UTV (utility terrain vehicle) and went trail riding in the desert north of Scottsdale. We donned safety helmets and gloves, wore goggles and a gauze dust mask (kind of like a ski mask, with a hole to see through). We really needed these because it was very dusty out there.

We spent about two hours scaling hills, crossing streams, eating dust, getting our bones shaken. It was definitely fun. At one point, we stopped at some old Hohokam ruins, a fortress they built to defend themselves from enemy attack. We had to climb by foot to this site, through some narrow openings in the rock. There were some great views from that location.
