So, my Wife dragged me (kicking and screaming) on a hike today.  It's Sunday, and I was being lazy.  I wanted to do almost anything else, yet I went anyway.  You know what...I had fun!  We took our dog Nemo and we walked.  It was a nice 4 or 5 mile trek, under blue skies and surrounded by the beautiful San Tan Mountains.  As we were walking, it dawned on me that we have such a great park, right here in our backyard.

They offer outdoor fun, hikes, and other types of nature discovery and at very reasonable rates. If you have not visited, you should.  The link provided should offer a little motivation to gt out there.  I will see you at San Tan Mountain regional park (I will be the one kicking and screaming)!
