Telegraph Pass

My son and I spent the past week visiting my parents in Yuma Arizona. It's been unseasonably cold this week but still warmer than St. Louis so we haven't done much swimming though we have been in the hot tub each day. Besides going to a dinner/dance with a bunch of retires that are full of life, seeing local tourist attractions, visiting and golfing, we got a chance to hike Telegraph Pass today. It was a very nice hike and I thought I would post a few pictures instead of spamming Instragram with them. Here you go...

Selfie to start the climb :-)

Grandma likes hiking too

Goof :-)

I always hike in a sweater :-)

We had a great time specially for a spur of the moment hike. If you are ever in Yuma and have a couple hours free I recommend it. It's fairly steep so bring appropriate footing, though I hiked it in Sperry boat shoes :-), plenty of water and appropriate clothing.

Looks like a wonderful family adventure!!! I'd much rather be in Yuma arizona in winter than in the summer :)
I'm jealous of the hot tub part.. it's freezing here!

I love that grandma still enjoys hiking. I want to be her! Maybe it's cool there but you're missing some total suck weather back home. Happy New Year!

Family hikes are the best! Can't believe how big Josh has gotten.

I think that place sorta looks like the surface of the moon. Not that I've ever been to the moon! :) I'm glad you had some quality family time, even if the weirdo wore a sweater hiking!! Happy New Year, my friend!!
