Okay, I got 5,000 feet higher on Wednesday.
Fine, if you want specifics, my husband and I drove the S-curve road up nearby Mt. Lemmon on Wednesday to go hiking -- the Bigelow Trail was at an elevation about 5,000 feet higher than where Tucson is in the valley.
I was thrilled to be walking -- and sitting -- beneath huge, old Ponderosa Pines!
I brought along Widget's carrier in case he got tired, but he was quite the trooper, sniffing and usually leading the way.
Phoenix the Corgi was with us as well, but was hanging back with my husband.
Before heading back down to Tucson, we stopped for pizza and a snack at the Cookie Cabin in Summerhaven. YUM!
The drive to the Bigelow and Butterfly trails is about an hour and a half from our home, but the trip was well worth the reward. I definitely need to do it more often.
