It was laundry time again, so yesterday we opted for one in Apache Junction so we could meet up with fellow bloggers and friends Ron and Barbara, and John and Carol, for a hike in the Superstition Mountains.
We’ve been to the nearby Lost Dutchman State Park once before and hiked a trail in the park, but this was all new to us. We decided on the First Water Trail Head, a few miles down a rough, rocky dirt road. This is such a beautiful part of the desert!
There were lots of fine rocks, a few petroglyphs and too much graffiti, horses, a hunter, and even water to cross. And no seniors were harmed on our 3.4 mile hike.

It was a lovely day and a very pleasant hike. We definitely want to come back and explore more of this area another time.
On the way home Ron and Barbara joined us at BJ’s Brewhouse in Mesa for a happy hour pizza and beer. Then we made one last stop at Trader Joe’s to stock up on a few things we won’t get for awhile, since we will be heading west towards Quartzsite tomorrow. Time to get back in the boondocking mode.
Wishing everyone a healthy, happy New Year! Hope to see you on down the road.
