I started to feel a little sickness coming on yesterday at work, which totally destroyed all my grandiose plans for this holiday weekend. :tt: Feeling no better (but no worse) today, I decided that rather than spend 10 hours on the couch watching commercials interspersed with 37 minutes of actual football action I should do something outside, without over-exerting myself and exacerbating my illness. I might be old-skool, but I think that light activity and fresh outdoor air is a key ingredient in fighting the cold or flu. :stretch:

So I decided to play on a couple of the bumps in northeast Mesa. :) There were quite a few cars in the parking lot at 9L Peak, and waaaaaaaay more people on the mountain than would fit in those cars! I stopped counting after I had passed 60 people :o on my way up. Apparently people from the local neighborhood walk from their homes and bring kids, dogs, and out-of-town relatives on this popular little hike. It's actually ideal for that.

Next, I headed over to visit some friends who live in Las Sendas. After half a cheese-log and a box of crackers, a couple of us decided to get spooked on the big hill. We took the adventurous way up ... the south side is a boulder field, and took the well-used route down the north side back down again. Nice little workout in the middle of a day of eating. The residents there are lucky to have a fun hill in their back yards!
