Hi.

Welcome to my corner of North Georgia. I document my adventures and outdoor activities in hopes of inspiring others to make the most of each day. It is my goal to make hiking accessible and non-intimidating, while promoting responsible enjoyment of the environment. No trail is too short!

Day 1- Phoenix

Weds 2/8/17

Our flight arrived in Phoenix around 2:30 pm but unfortunately we had to wait in line for quite a while at the rental car counter. I would not recommend Advantage for rental cars. We got an upgrade but I didn't really care about that and would have rather gotten my half hour back, mainly because by the time we got the car, rush hour had set in. 

We got to our AirBnB a little after 4 pm and met with our hostess and her adorable dog to learn about the Airstream. The hostess lives in a central part of Phoenix known as the “Historic Homesteads”. I researched the neighborhood and found the homes were most built in the 1930s as part of a New Deal program. The neighborhood is full of fruit trees and ranch style homes.

After getting settled, we met up with our friend Chris who lives in Scottsdale and went out to eat at McFate Brewing Company. We spent the evening reminiscing with Chris and planning our next day, which would be a trip to the Tucson area.

Day 1 observations- Sky Harbour airport is one of the least interesting airports I've ever been to, there are orange trees everywhere, there is a "Mormon Channel" on the radio.

Day 2- Tucson

Arizona, or how my vacation caused me to have an existential crisis
