My brother went home yesterday and so I’ve lost my intrepid hiking buddy. He was always willing to head out on the Arizona trails with me. When my husband Dave was on the pickle ball court or golfing or playing baseball or watching football my brother and I would head out on a hike.
On our last hike together the views were spectacular but my was it ever steep. On the upward trail I had to do parts of it a hundred steps at a time and then stop to catch my breath and on the downward trail I admit I had to hold my brother’s hand in sections where there were lots of loose rocks and a very steep descent. We hiked nearly ten kilometers and most of it was up or down. I am sorry to have lost my hiking buddy now that my brother is gone. My sister is coming tomorrow however and I think she might be willing to hike too. First though I will have to get new running shoes. I wore my old ones out while hiking with my brother.
