If he were ever to visit Arizona, what hike would you like to see him tackle?

I vote JJ3 and syoung race him up the Flatiron.

I do not think that Obama would really enjoy visiting our red state but it was unfortunate that he did not have the opportunity like many soldiers did in Afghanistan in 2009 to risk his life searching for the deserter Bowe Bergdahl. :M2C: :-({|=

considering the first comment jumped to complete randomness, I'm guessing this forum is about to get tarzan swinging' stupid.

Wow, this thread got stupid very fast. Oh, here... :M2C:
Maybe? :gun: :gun:

and probably :bdh:

But, if I wanted to be bothered with celebrity hikers of any kind, and I really, really, really don't, I mean since I barely want to see any people, anywhere, ever, these days, I would want to see a celebrity hiker tackle Humphrey in Winter, because virtually no one takes a vacation to Arizona in winter to hike in deep snow and potentially miserably high winds.

So I purposely didn't put this in the political forum because there's absolutely nothing political about a president going hiking on his vacation time.
[Though apparently it got moved to that forum due to the comments.]

How about it just being cool that the President hiked a trail on HAZ ...

Merry merry. Good tidings to all. : rein :

Nobody is buying you had merry intentions throwing a camouflaged steak into a nursery surrounded by wolves.

I'd take him to the Gilbert Riparian area to see the feral cats.

@joe bartels
I'm a little disappointed that's the reaction. No steak intended. I thought it was a neat story.
Perhaps I shouldn't have expected (hoped?) the jackholes on HAZ to keep their unrelated opinions to themselves. I probably should have known better. ](*,)

Why even refer to Arizona as a red state if you didn't want political responses?

Fair point. Not intended that way though.
I'll fix that.

Steak?

Sprout's has grass fed ribeye's for 16.99 a pound! It's pricey, but delicious.

I would go with Squaw Peak to see what kind of time he could throw up. Now, the POTUS is obviously not an athlete, but I have always wondered what kind of ascent times certain professional athletes could clock in. When Steve Nash used to play ball, I think I remember reading that he was an avid hiker. I wonder if he would ever be on Squaw, Camelbak, etc.

I'm sure he'd climb Piestawa Peak instead though it seems only narcissists hike there. Well, maybe he would...

Flatiron followed by a stop at the Apache Junction Filiberto's. How authentic an AZ experience is that?! :)

What's the name of the trail that is down range from the shooting range at South Mountain? I like the snowflakes on the page, I thought my eyes were screwing with me.

Wouldn't taking him to one of the border hikes be better? Maybe a backpacking trip - he could experience firsthand our night-time 'border security'.
