About a year ago, my first friend in AZ was diagnosed with a rare and deadly bone cancer. He fought a good fight and is in remission now. During the dark days when "demon's blood" coursed through his veins, I often sat with with him in the hospital room talking about the good times while hoping against hope that there would be more to come. During one of those days he asked me if I would take him hiking if he got through this. I said I would.

Today was our first day hiking. The damage caused by months of chemo rendered his legs just about useless so Ed has to learn how to walk again. We started on the nice easy trail out of weeks wash and took a nice easy stroll through the desert landscape on a beautiful morning.

Welcome back Ed. Let the good times begin again!
