Phoenix – Day 6: the Glass and Steel Scottsdale Trail

I can no longer get my shoes on.  The big toe on my left foot is black-and-blue and refuses to enter my tennis shoe.  Thank heaven for my sandals.  Mark’s sunburn is peeling in sheets and his skin is raw.  Hiking Scottsdale’s Camelback Mountain is not in the cards today.

We ate the stale continental breakfast that the hotel provided and drove the couple hours south to Phoenix.  The bulk of the day was spent hiking the glass and steel Scottsdale trail – also called Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall.  Yes even this hike inflicted damage on us.  More on our bank account than our feet or muscles but we did have some fun.  After checking into our hotel near the airport we dined at PF Chang’s and turned in to ensure we were packed up for our trip home.

It’s been a good week.  I feel confident we’re better for the wear and I know were happy with the choices we made this week.
