Mike likes to exercise. Most people would call it OCD. We woke up early (5:00 AM) yesterday, and the Big Guy went for a long hike BEFORE our hike up Cathedral Rock for 2 hours. It was one of the most beautiful experiences of our lives. Challenging, but beautiful.
I’m a less ambitious exerciser. I’m happy that I had trekking poles, a hat, one of those “keep cool” neckerchiefs, and 2 Liters of water. Some of the “steps” up were challenging for someone who isn’t quite 5’3”. Once we got to the top (40 flights of stairs according to my Fitbit) we could have stayed up there for a very long time. Further proof of Mike’s “disorder”: he climbed the equivalent of 100 floors ~ the Fitbit Skyscraper badge.
After our hike we had a lovely lunch at L’Auberge on the banks of Oak Creek and then headed back to book a Jeep Tour at sunset and a hot air balloon ride tomorrow morning. We will be very sad to leave this magical, mystical place. We’ll be back for sure!
