Welcome! I'm a bit farther in the East Valley (almost in Phoenix, really) but alas, just starting out, trying to see if I can handle more than two miles, but there's lots of great hiking for you around here!

My daughter lived in Mesa several years ago for a while and I was over here a number of times. I've driven through some of the Superstition once. My hikes are usually 3 to 7 or 8 miles right now. I have done 9 or 10 a couple of times. I live in Silver City, with the Gila National Forest all around me and lots of places to explore. And right now it's so pretty and green with wildflowers because we've had a lot of rain the last couple of months. It looks greener right now than in several years because we've been in a drought for the past few years. We are still considered in drought because water tables are still low. I'm hoping we have a good wet winter this year. I'm not wild about the snow, and sometimes we have very little. But we need it so bad, especially in the mountains, to have the water tables built back up as it melts next spring.
Happy hiking!

Linda

Hi Linda,

Thanks for the welcome!

I live in east Mesa, not too far (not too close either--lol) from the Superstition Mountains.

Hi and welcome to the group. What part of AZ are you in? I'm in southern New Mexico and have been through a lot of areas in AZ at one time or another.

Hi! Looking forward to meeting people and getting involved with the team. I'm more of a casual hiker (not much more than 10 miles during a hike--usually a little less).

I'm currently living in Arizona, but hoping to move back to Ohio (beautiful, green state--unlike the giant desert where I am now) within 2 years.

I've been on Spark for awhile (a few years under a different screen name), and I have found that teams can be so motivational.

Happy hiking!
