Today we hiked Sabino Canyon. It's a park area about 10 miles outside Tucson, you park at the bottom and a tram takes you up through a canyon for about 30 min to the top. We got out there and hike up some switch backs for 1 mile, then hung a right and hiked about 4 miles of gorgeous trails. Cacti like I've never seen, alpine meadows, rock formations and wild flowers just starting to bloom. It was some of the most stunning scenery I've ever seen. About 3 1/2 miles into the 4 mile hike it got high and ran along the edge of some rock faces and drops with no vegetation for buffer on the downhill side. Some of you know I have a fear of heights, well, did it ever kick in. I did ok for about 10 min or so, then we kept having to go out around a rock formation and turn a corner, and there was more uphill with yet another rock and corner, then another, it kept coming and coming. I had a full on panic attack. We had about 30 min of that type of trail to do before it started to go back down and level off to where I could breath without sobbing. Then we came down to come pools along the creek and back out to the road for a 1 mile walk back to the car. All in all about a 6 mile hike, and what a gorgeous hike it was!
